Boasting more Great Barrier Reef Tours than any city in the world, Cairns offers all visitors world-class experiences from adventurous scuba diving to first-time snorkelling options. Some of the most popular tours and day trips include sailing trips to idyllic sandy cays which are surrounded by azure waters and easily accessible coral reefs.
These floating playgrounds offer activities for all ages and are the perfect choice if you have young children or you're worried about your swimming abilities. You'll be able to make the most of the reef with activities tailored to all ages and experiences, with the majority of Outer Reef Pontoons offering glass bottom boat tours, snorkelling and scuba diving. Our recommendation is REEF MAGIC, which is the newest on the block. Powered via wind and solar energy, with a fully functioning scientific lab, the pontoon is a more sustainable option that has been built for the future!
Alternatively, there are plenty of day trip options for more experienced swimmers and divers, which will allow you to explore more of the reef. These tours will usually take you to two sites on the Great Barrier Reef, with options for snorkelling, intro diving or certified diving.
The main departure point for The Great Barrier Reef tours is the Reef Fleet Terminal, which is located just a 2-minute walk from our front doorstep!
