Fly past Cairns City and along the rainforest coastline to Yarrabah then over the lush tropical Fitzroy Island with its fringing reef en-route to picturesque Moore Reef via Sudbury Cay.

You'll be amazed by the variety of marine life on the outer Great Barrier Reef as you spend the afternoon with Sunlover Cruises.
