We offer diving and snorkelling tours of the Great Barrier Reef, with daily departures from the ports of Cairns and Port Douglas. We also offer Liveaboard boat tours and special dive excursions for those who wish to stay overnight on the reef and visit pristine locales including the Northern Great Barrier Reef, Cod Hole and Coral Sea, which are famous for the added thrill of Shark Diving and Dwarfe Minke Whales sightings.
We organise private yacht charters for those who prefer their own itinerary and wish to experience the majesty of the Great Barrier Reef in an exclusive setting without the crowds. We also offer more affordable sailing and Cairns cruising holidays that will take you to Tropical Islands and Outer Barrier Reef locations for snorkelling, scuba diving and exploring or sailing off into the sunset with a group of likeminded adventurers.
We offer Great Barrier Reef Island tours to Green Island, Lizard Island, the Frankland Islands and the Low Isles. There are basic ferry packages or fully inclusive day tours with activities such as reef snorkelling, glass bottom boat and semi-submersible submarine tours, all with delicious gourmet catering. There are numerous sand cays along the reef including Michaelmas Cay, Upolu Cay and Sudbury Cay. These sandy cays offer a fantastic base for first time snorkellers or for those who love to just laze around in the sun and indulge in swimming and relaxing. If you would like to stay a little longer, there are the resorts of Green Island, Dunk Island, Bedarra Island and the remote and beautiful Lizard Island, which offer complete peace and seclusion.
Our rainforest tours include Kuranda Train and Skyrail tours and packages, Wildlife Tours, the Southern Tablelands and Waterfall Circuit and Wooroonoonan National Park, all located on the Atherton Tablelands and to the south of Cairns. Alternatively, travel north along the coast where you will find the World Heritage Listed Daintree and Cape Tribulation rainforests. Here you can trek for a day or stay overnight with one of our rainforest packages.
There are a wealth of secrets and mysteries to be unfolded when it comes to Australian AboriginalIndigenous culture. Venture into the wild spaces of Far North Queensland and you will enter a world steeped in ancient Indigenous culture with spirits and legends recorded in rock art. The Bama Way Aboriginal Journeys brings together three highly acclaimed Indigenous owned and operated tour companies. The Bama Way links Kuku Yalanji Cultural Habitat Tours, Walker Family Tours the award winning tribal Elder, Willie Gordon of Guurrbi Tours. The term ‘Bama’ is widely used throughout Far North Queensland to mean an Indigenous Australian but in both tribes the word simply means 'person' regardless of nationality or race.
Have you ever wanted to experience the great Outback and Inland regions of Far North Queensland? We have it covered with Cape York Safaris that carry you overland to the very top of Australia to Cooktown and the Bloomfield Track (with Aboriginal Rock Art viewing at Laura) as well as the Gulf Savannah and Kakadu. Our Outback tours include 4WD safaris, historic Gulflander and Savannahlander train holidays as well as personalised tours by air.
Speaking of Scenic Air Tours, have you ever considered combining the visual sensation of a scenic flight with the magic of the Great Barrier Reef? We have helicopter tours that fly over the Great Barrier Reef and then land on a heli-pad before you find yourself being collected by friendly crew to transfer you on to an island or a pontoon situated directly on the reef. You can fly out to the reef and travel home by catamaran after enjoying tours which highlight the very best of the Great Barrier Reef from above and below. We also have flight itineraries that show you the rainforest, the Outback, Lizard Island, Cooktown and Cape York in a single day. Scenic flights are available from Cairns and Port Douglas via helicopter, fixed wing aircraft or seaplane. We even offer private aircraft charters and exclusive helicopter transfers.
For those who don’t like to fly too high, we offer Ballooning Tours that carry you gently over the Atherton Tablelands as the sun rises. At the end of your flight, enjoy a champagne breakfast before arriving back into Cairns and Port Douglas. Our selected ballooning tours are available as a standalone package or can be combined with day tours of other areas and attractions including the Kuranda Scenic Train with Skyrail Rainforest Cableway, Rainforestation Nature Park, Green Island or the Outer Barrier Reef.
