Equipped with every kind of water (or air-bound) activity, Marine World is the floating activity platform you want to spend some time at. A cruise to this reef-surrounded escape ensures you pass your day exactly how you please – be it by snorkelling, diving, helicoptering or just relaxing.

Head to the marina and board your speedy catamaran, then zip towards the outer edge of the Great Barrier Reef. During the ride, tune in to an expert marine biologist's discussion of the Reef and its varied, vibrant residents. Pull up to the Marine World pontoon and scan the sea’s shimmering blue waters, before delving into an afternoon of action.

As a variety of activities are available, you can embark on any that take your interest. Take a semi-submersible tour (interactive commentary included) into the swirling world of sea turtles and translucent jellyfish. Or, board a glass-bottomed boat and peer down into the coral-lined depths.

Back at the pontoon, opt for a scuba session (introductory and certified dives are offered), snorkel alongside a marine biologist or board an impressive helicopter for a 5-minute soar above the seas. However you decide to work up an appetite, enjoy a fresh buffet lunch served on the sun deck – feel free to peruse its sumptuous selection and enjoy the rest of your water-soaked day before the return to Cairns.

Unless you want to take part in all the water activities it’s not for you! However the semi submersible viewing is good. Lunch great. I was appalled at the state of the Coral. If you want to see living Coral go else where. I enjoyed the day.

We had a great time in marine world. Special thanks to the helmet diving staff! They are extremely patient with my daughter who got scared before putting on the helmet. With their help and encouragement my daughter got to experience the best fish encounter ever! Thank you so much!!!
