Passionate about paradise? This water-soaked excursion has your name on it. An epic voyage on board the 82-foot (25-metre) Passions of Paradise sails to two awesome snorkelling locations each day.

Your journey begins onboard a brand new chic catamaran, outfitted for both speed and comfort—and even includes the option to sail. Grab a sunny seat on deck as you set off for two of the best locations the Great Barrier Reef has on offer

With a catalogue of over 24 superior reef destinations Passions of Paradise will tailor their itinerary to suit the day’s conditions guaranteeing you a reef adventure of a life time! After brief instructions, strap on your mask, and clamour in for your first close-up introduction to the reef and its inhabitants.

Once you’ve worked up an appetite, hop back on the boat for a sumptuous tropical buffet lunch, freshly prepared by the on board chef. Check out the variation in the stunning coral structures and array of marine life as we change locations for a second round of snorkelling and diving. Join a complimentary guided snorkel tour or follow a sea turtle over tranquil coral gardens!

Snorkel, enjoy a SCUBA demonstration or choose the optional upgrade for your own deeper water dive. Then, as you head back to Cairns, sip an afternoon tea as the captain cuts the motor and you sail your way back to shore.

The experience was fantastic ... the Crew makes it even better they are the nicest people I have ever met so genuine and take time to know you and help choose the correct equipment for your snorkel or dive... We loved it so much that we booked it again for the next day... my son and I will forever be grateful to have met the awesome peeps of Passions of Paradise III

The crew were very accommodating and helpful. Great food on board. Amazing experience snorkeling in the barrier reef for the first time. We had never done any kind of marine activity before- but due to the amazing crew we were snorkeling on our own in no time.
