The Tour

Enjoy your morning at leisure before departing from Cairn’s Helipad at Cairns Marinas at midday, to fly out from the heart of the city over the Cairns harbour and rainforest clad coastline, over stunning Green Island and on to one of the greatest natural wonders of the world, the Great Barrier Reef. You may be able to spot a whale, a shark or even a turtle from the air before making a perfect touchdown on the helipad before being transferred to Great Adventure’s Pontoon.

Here you can enjoy coral viewing through the semi-submersible submarine, visit the underwater observatory, enjoy snorkelling with all equipment and instruction provided (as well as buoyancy vests and flotation devices). Enjoy a delicious hot and cold buffet lunch including prawns, hot and cold buffet selections including fresh salads, cold meat platters and a selection of tropical fruits, freshly baked bread rolls and tea and coffee.

At the end of the day you will return to Cairns onboard a fast, modern and stable luxury catamaran to arrive into Cairns Marinas at approximately 5.30pm.
