54321 It was a perfect day cruise for us because I could stay on the platform and sunbath while my husband participated in all the water activities. The lunch buffet was delicious and the staff was excellent.
Christine Rathweg — 17 September, 2017

54321 Perfect for all ages! My 72 years old Mother come along too. She could occupy herself well while we were snorkelling. This trip is bit more expensive than others but so worth it. Great food and friendly and patience staff. We enjoyed it so much that will go again tomorrow!
Julia Boer — 14 September, 2017

54321 The best highlight of our Cairns holiday. The staff were so amazing and nothing was a problem. The reef and boat tours were awesome. Highly recommended this trip
Kellie — 21 July, 2017

54321 Overall a wonderful experience! Every one of the crew went out of their way to make sure we were having a great experience and were very helpful. Plus they have a great sense of Aussie humor! Wally is quite a star too!
John Sutherland — 5 March, 2017

54321 We went out today with Reef Magic and had a brilliant time. The crew were great, the photographs brilliant and Wally performed for us all and the camera. The coral was magnificent and teaming with fish. A wonderful day!
Phillippa Bourne — 20 February, 2017

54321 Absolutely amazing. I travelled to the Great Barrier Reef with my parents and my sister. Two people in my family could not swim and found this experience very easy and relaxed. All staff were happy to help out wherever and made the day super fun and enjoyable. I was my first time snorkelling and scuba diving and I was guided every step of the way. The best thing about this tour is that it's done at your own pace and you are not rushed to complete any activities. Thanks so much to the team at Reef Magic :)
Sita Khiani — 29 January, 2017

54321 We had high hopes for this day on the Barrier Reef and were not disappointed. It was like suddenly being transported into another world. The staff couldn't have been more friendly and helpful, putting us at our ease immediately, and were most knowledgeable and enthusiastic. I would recommend this tour to anyone interested without hesitation.
Catherine Barker — 23 January, 2017

54321 We had a perfect day, my wife does not swim but came along to support myself and my grandson, plus at least she could say "I've been to the barrier reef". It was a great experience, the crew were terrific, so glad we opted for this tour.
Malcolm — 11 December, 2016

54321 What an amazing day out on the reef! Perfect for those that get sea sick as the pontoon is very stable. The scuba diving was incredible -we saw reef sharks and even swam through caves. We had ample time for lunch & a leisurely snorkel with Wally, the big Maori Wrasse you see in the photos :) Highly recommend!
Jordan — 2 November, 2016

54321 Une magnifique expérience , on se sent vraiment encadré et en sécurité. Nous avons surtout aimé le scaphandre qui est vraiment génial et même si au départ nous étions un peu anxieux , l'équipe de plongeurs est tellement à vos côtés que la peur disparait très vite. Un grand merci à Jenny pour sa gentillesse et sa bonne humeur

*Translated via Google Translate - A wonderful experience , felt very controlled and safe. We especially liked the suit is really great and although initially we were a little anxious, the dive team is on your side so that fear disappears very quickly. A big thank you to Jenny for her kindness and good humor

54321 Great day on the reef starting from the Catamaran journey to the platform. The semi submersible & snorkelling was excellent. Saw coral, fish, turtles, small sharks. Lunch was good. Would recommend this tour. Doesn't start too early but there is enough time for all activities.
Shubha Vagholkar — 27 October, 2014

54321 We were unsure at first about this tour as it was a bit pricey but all the inclusions made it cheaper than other tours. And we're glad we went with it as we really loved the day. My youngest loved the semi sub as he was a bit scared of snorkelling. We all had a great time. Thanks!

This tour suits everyone as it offers a variety of activities for swimmers and non-swimmers.

It is perfect for families with children. Semi-sub tours, glass bottom boat tours, underwater observatory, unlimited snorkelling including snorkel equipment and wetsuits and lycra suits, buffet lunch are all included. Many people add on a scuba dive or a scenic helicopter flight to see the reef from a different perspective. The outer reef location has good visibility.

Things to Consider

The fast, stable catamaran gives you a comfortable ride to the outer reef and carries a maximum of 200 passengers.

The hot and cold buffet lunch is open for 1.5 hours giving everyone plenty of time.

The platform provides easy access to the snorkel area.

German & French -speaking crew are on board every day.

Wetsuits and stinger suits are now included in the price.

Our Recommendation

This tour has something for everyone with lots of inclusions!
