3 Day/2 Night Outer Barrier Reef Encounter from  Cairns

Adults from $595

See everything the Great Barrier Reef has to offer over two spectacular nights - you even have time to become a certified diver!

Head to the Great Barrier Reef for a two-night tour on a live-aboard vessel, and snorkel and dive in sparkling waters teeming with life and enjoy luxurious accommodation on-board.

  • Stay two nights on a live-aboard in the extraordinary Great Barrier Reef Marine Park
  • Explore the reef by snorkelling, swimming and embarking on introductory or certified dives
  • Enjoy all meals aboard the vessel
  • Begin your tour early in the day by stepping onto a luxurious live-aboard and learning about the spectacular Reef you are going to explore with a presentation by a marine biologist.

After docking at a prime location on the Reef, step into the inviting warm water. Put on your snorkel gear and plunge into the water to watch fish, glorious manta rays, friendly sea turtles and other marine life wander around lively corals or suit up in diving equipment and dive deep into the ocean's depths. For new divers, the tour offers introductory lessons (additional cost).

Following an exhilarating day exploring the Reef, head aboard for a delicious dinner and refreshing night's sleep. Wake up in the morning to breakfast in the saloon and more time to explore the reef.
