- the best Great Barrier Reef tours

Cairns Cruise to the Great Barrier Reef

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

You have the opportunity to explore the reef at any time of the year that suits you.

Set out on a Cairns Cruise and, after a short trip to the reef through calm waters protected by the reef itself, 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 snorkeling and scuba tours, though which is right for you?  

Snorkeling at the reef is an experience that you will never forget and the vast majority of this magical world is close enough to the ocean surface for you to see all it has to offer while gently swimming with just a mask and snorkel.

While most of this amazing environment can be viewed looking down a few metres from the water’s surface, there is a completely different experience to be had with a scuba dive tour…

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

Search for the elusive clownfish hiding in its careful selected sea anemone home or swim alongside the gentle-giant humphead wrasse.

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

Cairns and Rainforests

Daintree Rainforest

Cairns is a widely popular tourist destination thanks to its proximity to not only World Heritage listed Great Barrier Reef but also among other attractions.

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

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

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