Duration: 8 Hours.

Sit back and picture yourself snorkeling over the enchanting reef gardens, where the coral is pristine and the water is stunningly clear! Great Barrier Reef snorkeling tours provide an exciting and unforgettable day, so come along as we are guided through a great time of our lives.

During your trip to Australia, join us in one of our Great Barrier Reef holidays in Queensland, Australia, as you board your Tusa Dive vessel at A Finger, Cairns' Marlin Marina to commence a full day trip to the Great Barrier Reef. Getting yourself away from the crowds is what this tour is all about, so why not join one of the greatest Australia tours? You definitely won’t regret it!

Visit some the best two sites for the days' conditions, selected from a large range of unique outer reef locations. Your adventure starts as the departure from the Cairns Marlin Jetty at 8:00am. Then, you will take a comfortable 90-minute cruise to the day's first reef site. At the stunning reef, you'll be provided with snorkels instructions and quality equipment, including a wetsuit or lycra skin, mask, snorkel, booties, and fins. You’ll find yourself into knee depth water on the platform off the boat and slip right in to be amongst the vibrant and lively coral landscapes as well as the tropical marine life. Will you come across a friendly tropical fish? Will you get to see stingrays fly by? The possibilities the endless! Explore with your buddy or join the free guided snorkel tour.

As you join us, you will be one of only sixty guests on a modern 24-meter catamaran. The group may seem rather large, but you’ll have plenty of space to explore! Tusa is a premium motoring vessel that can carry 120 passengers, but this company keeps the number of passengers at 65 per day. This promises ample seats for everyone and personalized service from the crew. Everyone deserves the best service and safety in a trip like this! Also, this company provides the only Cairns day boat that is licensed for 16 sites, which enables the captain to selectively choose the best two sites for you on the day. This equates to visiting higher quality reef sites as the company is dispersing less people over more reef sites every day. This slows the human impact on the sites.

You’ll also find yourself learning that they are an Advanced Ecotourism Operator, which is committed to providing a service that reflects our responsibility to contribute to the protection of our environment. Not only will you experience an exciting trip, you may be appreciative to know that your destination and cruise is taken care of for the amazing Australia and for every passenger.

A delicious lunch buffet will be served on board, while you enjoy the Reef Ecology presentation. There’s a lot to learn!  

After nearly five hours at the reef, you will cruise back to Cairns around 4:15pm. This trip is one of the greatest trips to remember, cherish, and share, and we can’t wait to see you!
