The Tour Your day starts with an early morning courtesy transfer from Cairns or Cairns Northern Beaches located accommodation. Transfer to the Reef Fleet Terminal in Cairns to check-in with Reef Magic Cruises to depart the Cairns Marinas at 9.00am. Cruise from Cairns onboard a fast, modern and stable catamaran to Reef Magic's Marine World Pontoon, located at Moore Reef on the Outer Barrier Reef.

Once you arrive at Reef Magic’s Marine World Platform, the beauty of the Great Barrier Reef is yours to experience. Your Reef Magic Outer Barrier Reef Tour includes up to 4 1/2 hours free time on the pontoon with included activities such as snorkelling equipment including bouyancy vests, underwater observatory with panoramic viewing windows built into lower 'underwater' level of the pontoon, semi submersible submarine tours with full commentary, glass bottom boat tours as well as a delicious buffet lunch with selection of hot and cold dishes! The pontoon is stable in the water with plenty of room to enjoy activities, there's even a sundeck with sunlounges for sunbathing and entry stairs that lead from the pontoon, straight out onto the coral bombies of Moore Reef.

After enjoying your day on the Outer Barrier Reef, its time to leave the pontoon and travel back to Cairns via helicopter! Fly over the turquoise waters of the Great Barrier Reef and see imposing reef formations, including white sandy cays and kilometres of individual reefs!

As you are traveling back from the pontoon via helicopter, not only are you able to witness the majesty of the Great Barrier Reef from the air; you are also shortening travel time.
