54321 It was amazing. The crue, the way they instructed us and took care of our safety and their hospitality. The diving spots were really beautiful, we have seen turtels, a barracuda and numerous fisch and corals. A must do when you stay in Cairns. Special thanks to Paul, for his typical Belgium humor !

Our Tour Review

The Good

Passengers love the comfortable spacious boat for the cruise to the outer reef. Certified divers love this tour because they can do up to three dives, some other boats only offer two dives.

Things to Consider

This tour suits the more adventurous snorkelers and divers as activities are undertaken direct from the boat (no pontoon or island).

With access to 16 different reef sites the best two sites are chosen on the day depending on the conditions.

Our Recommendation

This tour is perfect for divers and adventure snorkelers who want a premium experience.
