What you can expect

Experience one of the best things to do in Cairns, The Great Barrier Reef, with this local award-winning company and boat. This tour includes a full day reef cruise with snorkelling, up to 3 scuba dives and lunch. Departing from Cairns onboard 35-metre super yacht, Evolution, you will head out into the coastal waters to your first Outer Great Barrier Reef destination.

You will visit two reefs during the day. The reefs are selected daily to ensure the most beautiful experience possible. Once you have arrived at the reef, you will gather your snorkelling or scuba diving gear and slide into the water to begin your underwater adventure. As you submerge yourself in the calm, crystal-clear waters of the Outer Great Barrier Reef, take a look around you to find one of the richest ecosystems on the planet.

Move slowly through the water, getting intimate looks at an abundance of marine life including sea turtles, manta rays, and even sharks. You can explore to your heart's content at 2 unique locations, relaxing on the boat's deck in between each one and refuelling with a scrumptious barbecue lunch. On the way back to shore, enjoy a complimentary glass of wine and a light snack as you cruise back to Cairns.
