Set off on a catamaran cruise to the pristine Moore Reef for a sun-drenched, action-packed day. This family-friendly adventure features glass-bottom boats, semi-submersible vessels, and even a theme-park Water Slide. Enjoy a scrumptious tropical buffet, and the chance to dive in and become fast friends with all under-the-sea marine citizens of the Great Reef.

Start your morning on board a sleek, modern catamaran –fitted out for both speed and comfort. With your cup of morning coffee in hand, grab a sunny seat on deck as you coast across the Coral Sea towards Sunlover's new multi-level floating pontoon on Moore Reef.

Here, the real adventure begins. Suitable for all ages and abilities, a myriad of activities are at your disposal.

On the whole this is a good cruise. Sunlover takes you to Moore Reef, which is truly extraordinarily beautiful. I did two reefs the day before, but they could not compare with Moore. Sunlover also does a good job with roping in the snorkeling area so that you don't have to worry about swimming too far out. The pontoon is spacious and provides easy access to the water -- more importantly, it is easier to get out of water. However, there are a few things Sunlover could improve. First, the snorkeling mask is not very clean -- all of them have mold. Second, it does not take much to provide defogging solution, but Sunlover asks you to use your own spit, which I suspect is the cause of the mold. The cabin's airconditioning is very cold, but I was told that this helps with seasickness. I was lucky that the ship was only half full. I cannot imagine how crowded the cruise might be in busy season -- Sunlover runs two cruises to the same reef during busy season. There are other activities -- sea walking, helicopter riding, semi-submersible, and glass-bottom boat. I took the only last two (come with the package). I would recommend skipping the semi-submersible since you can see much. Glass-bottom boat is worth taking.
