If you start your boat ride from Cairns, you will get more than an hour to cruise. In favourable weather, you can get the best on-the-water experience at your favourite mooring from six reef locations. We recommend visiting the Saxon reef or Norman reef in the morning and continuing with north Hastings reef in the afternoon.
The great barrier reef has spectacular marine life filled with colourful fishes and corals. Make sure to carry your snorkelling equipment with you.
