Rise and shine early. We'll collect you from the Rydges Esplanade (or alternative accommodation that you'll need to notify Pro Dive Cairns of) at 5.55am and take you to the marina to meet your boat by 7.00am. Then we'll head straight out to the world's premier snorkelling playground. Every sort of tropical marine life imaginable calls the Great Barrier Reef its home. During the next three days and nights you can too!
Another day to explore the water wilderness. You'll view stingrays gliding through the reef and schools of brightly coloured tropical fish navigating their way through magnificent coral formations. Back on board it's time for stories, food, a drink, then we'll hit the deck...or maybe the sack.
- See giant turtles, stingrays, huge clams, and the clearest blue waters on the planet
The final day of your reef adventure begins early and winds up late in the afternoon. We'll leave you free to explore the reef and enjoy the clear waters. Late in the afternoon we'll head back to dry land - Cairns. From there you'll be escorted back to your hotel.
