What you can expect

Enjoy a wonderful balance of Great Barrier Reef scenery and convenience with a tour from Cairns to an activity platform on the reef for several hours worth of fun in the sun and sea. On this Cairns to pontoon full-day trip departing at 9:30 am, you'll have approximately four hours to explore the marine life and glorious coral of the Outer Great Barrier Reef from the Moore Reef pontoon without having to invest too much time or money that longer cruises require. Be amazed and inspired by the unsurpassed beauty and splendour of this underwater playground, then enjoy a tasty picnic lunch to refresh your senses.

Adding to the range of included activities enjoy a free 35-minute guided snorkel tour exploring areas of the reef not accessible by others in a small group of up to six guests. Suitable for guests aged 7 and over.

Heading out and back to the platform, you'll travel in luxury onboard a modern and spacious air-conditioned catamaran, which departs daily from the Reef Fleet Terminal in the centre of Cairns. With all snorkelling equipment and necessary inclusions required, you'll have everything you'll need for a satisfying and memorable day exploring Australia's greatest natural wonder.
