- Cairns best Great Barrier Reef tours

Cairns Cruise to the Great Barrier Reef

Great Barrier Reef The Great Barrier Reef stretches along much of the tropical northern Queensland coastline. The ocean currents that run along this natural wonder keep the Coral Sea waters warm year-round.

One can explore the reef at any time of the year.

Set out on a Cairns Cruise and, after a short trip, our tour operators will bring you to one of several perfect locations to explore.

Once in the water with your snorkel gear, you will find yourself looking down on a peaceful underwater garden teeming with a seemingly endless variety of reef fish and marine life.

The Great Barrier Reef is one of the most highly concentrated and diverse wildlife areas in the world.

At your own pace, you will discover thousands of species of vibrant and colourful tropical reef fish, hard and soft corals and much more.

Snorkel or Scuba Dive?

Scuba Dive

Cairns Cruise offers both snorkelling and scuba tours, though which is right for you?  

Snorkelling at the reef is an experience that you will never forget. The majority of this magical world is close enough to the ocean surface for you to see with just a mask and snorkel.

While guests can view most of this coral a few metres from the water’s surface, scuba diving has an entirely different experience.

Imagine exploring the reef from the perspective of its natural inhabitants, down amongst the coral formations.

Please search for the elusive clownfish hiding in its careful selected sea anemone home or swim alongside the Colossal  Humphead Wrasse.

Cairns Cruise scuba dive tours can get you into this world.  The rest is up to you.

Cairns is a widely popular tourist destination thanks to its proximity to the World Heritage-listed Great Barrier Reef and other attractions.

After exploring the reef, why not head north to Cape Tribulation and the renowned Daintree Rainforest?

Don’t forget to check out Kuranda’s nearby village and explore the surrounding rainforest by Scenic Train or Skyrail cableway.

If you venture inland from Cairns, you will discover the Atherton Tablelands and the freshwater lakes and waterfalls.
