Cairns: Outer and Coral Cay Snorkel and Dive Cruise

1. Cairns: Outer and Coral Cay Snorkel and Dive Cruise

Step foot on a super-fast, luxury 20m CAT, feeling welcomed and pampered, and embark on an ocean-filled journey of discovery. After your early boarding from Marlin Marina, breathe in the morning ocean breeze as you sail to one of two snorkel and dive destinations. From there, explore the ocean's brilliant fish and coral reefs. At the stunning Upolu Coral Cay Reef, learn about graceful blue-spotted stingrays, tenacious green sea turtles, bright damsel fish, and other amazing creatures that call this reef their home, as you observe them from a glass bottom boat. You’ll then have the chance to see these inquisitive creatures up close, while snorkeling within the incredibly clear, turquoise water. The second snorkel and dive site is the fascinating ‘Wonder Wall’, located on the outer edge of Upolu Reef. Enjoy snorkeling on the top of the wall for easy viewing of all the marine life and coral. Sign-up for the optional, certified or introductory guided dive, encountering a huge variety of aquatic flora and fauna, including hard and soft corals, giant clams, fans, turtles and a vast assortment of colorful tropical fish as you descend and meander along the side of the wall .  In between visiting these two sites, enjoy a smorgasbord lunch fit for a king. Savor smoked salmon, prawns, three types of cold meat, a chicken platter, three fresh salads and a variety of breads. After a relaxed six hours of diving and snorkeling, spend the trip home indulging in even more delicious food, arriving back at Cairns at around 4:30 PM.

Cairns: Green Island & Great Barrier Reef Sailing Tour

2. Cairns: Green Island & Great Barrier Reef Sailing Tour

Board a classic sailboat with its crew and head out on a Green Island and Great Barrier Reef sailing cruise. Lend a hand or just relax and watch, feeling the salty breeze in your hair as you glide over the waters. Grab a Danish pastry, fresh fruit, and tea or coffee, and settle into the sailing excursion as Cairns disappears in the distance. Arrive at the exclusive Great Barrier Reef mooring that’s just 1-kilometer off Green Island. Make your way to the pinnacle part of the reef. After a snorkeling briefing, dive underneath the water’s surface with the crew and enjoy small, personalized snorkeling tours throughout the day. See corals, schools of colorful reef fish, stingrays, turtles, and black-tipped reef sharks, which are very shy and perfectly safe. Enjoy a personalized first dive with just 2 divers per instructor. No previous experience is required for this bookable option. If you are a certified diver, expect a small group with a dive guide. This tour is great for conservative diving, but not for deeper water or drift dives. After a morning of snorkeling and diving at this exclusive site, enjoy a large lunch back on board the boat. Feast on fresh Tasmanian salmon, prawns, mixed meats, chicken, and three different salads. Enjoy some time on Green Island and relax on the beach or enjoy optional island activities. Enjoy a cocktail at the island’s resort, walk across the island, visit Marine Land Melanesia where you can see crocodiles in captivity, or take a glass-bottomed boat tour. Take 4.5 hours to enjoy the reef and island. Set sail for the return trip. Enjoy fresh fruit, cheese, and crackers, a glass of wine, and finally, a piece of cake to end on a sweet note.

We went on the 8th of September and what can I say? This was by far the best day I've ever had travelling. From the check in, the staff were super friendly and on the boat they were funny, informative and just created the best cibe. We unfortunately didnt get to scuba dive due to medical reasons and the staff had the refund sorted by that night! They also had prescription goggles that almost fit me to a T and made the experience so much more fun for a blind person! The boat was everything you wanted for a day tour and the food was nice throughout the day and the drinks in the afternoon (you have to have a tab) were so nice! .. We had perfect weather & saw so much marine life including dolphins and turtles! All round would recommend this 100× over! Best crew, best weather, best day.

Staff are competent, confident, kind and friendly- assistance with snorkeling was really useful. Sailing was a blast! Food was ample and enjoyable. Great adventure! Thanks to all the crew for a wonderful and unique experience.

This was an excellent day out. The introductory dive was a fantastic experience - hats off to instructor Etienne! Crew were friendly, helpful, engaging. The snorkelling was amazing. Thoroughly recommended.

Crew were amazing, super friendly and made you feel really safe when trying snorkeling for the first time. Food was amazing, learned a lot about the reef as well. Overall absolutely amazing!

It's was a great experience. Unfortunately the weather was not favourable and should not deter prospective travellers. Food was good. Staff good.
