Great Barrier Reef Liveaboard Dive & Snorkel Excursions

For those who have the time, Cairns offers a good variety of liveaboard Dive and Snorkel Excursions that will allow you to increase the amount of time spent enjoying and exploring the Great Barrier Reef. In doing a Cairn Liveaboard tour to the Great Barrier Reef you will find yourself enjoying tropical days and balmy nights out on the Great Barrier Reef. Imagine waking up in the early morning to the witness the sun rise after spending the night on the reef. Our selection of Cairns Liveaboard Tours will cater to Certified Scuba Divers, Introductory Divers and Snorkellers alike.

You may choose to participate in and enjoy one of the small group liveaboard Sailing Tours or alternately, travel on one of the larger motorized liveaboard vessels. Liveaboard Sailing Tours cater for smaller groups but do not offer cabins with private ensuite bathrooms such as the larger motorized liveaboard vessels can. Both styles of liveaboard tours will offer passengers different advantages pertaining to space and comfort levels, so it is a good idea to ask one of our friendly sales staff for advice prior to booking.
