All equipment is provided, and guides are on hand to provide instruction and ensure your safety. Whatever you choose, expect to spend ample time in the water observing the reef’s famous marine life including coral formations, tropical fish, anemones, and sea turtles.
In between dives, recharge with morning and afternoon tea breaks and enjoy a delicious buffet lunch midday. Purchase a drink from the full onboard bar if you like, and soak up the tropical sun on the return trip to Cairns, where your tour concludes in the afternoon.
