Full description
On the first day, board the transfer vessel at Cairns and head to the Outer Great Barrier Reef for the first part of your snorkeling and diving adventure. After 90 minutes, arrive at the first destination on the reef. On the way, your talented and experienced crew will take you through a safety briefing for the boat and your chosen activity of snorkeling or diving. Once out on the reef, it is time to gear up and get in the water to explore the hidden wonders that make it the Great Barrier Reef.

Enjoy a delicious tropical buffet with a choice of salads, cold meats, and fruit. Tea, coffee, and water are also available. After lunch, it is back to the water to explore a new reef location. At 3:00 PM, board your overnight accommodation and after settling in and meeting your new family, there is the chance to hit the water again. Then take in the sunset over the Great Barrier Reef as dinner is freshly prepared and then served at 7:00 PM. Then it is time to find out what goes bump in the night on the Great Barrier Reef. Certified divers have the opportunity to do a night dive and snorkelers get to experience the Sharks in the Dark program. After the final dive or snorkel of the day, the bar is open until 10:30 PM so relax, trade stories, and get some rest for another big day on the reef tomorrow. 

On the second day, wake up to the sunrise on the reef and get ready to for an early morning dive. Witness the night patrol going to bed and the daylight critters coming out to play. After, enjoy a delicious breakfast. There are two more diving and snorkeling opportunities this morning. A buffet style lunch is served. In the afternoon, there is time to relax and do your fourth dive of the day. Once again, enjoy a delicious dinner before jumping back in the water for a night dive or to see sharks up close.

On the final day, wake up to the sunrise over the Great Barrier Reef again. Make the most of your final day on the reef with an early morning dive or snorkel. After breakfast is the last of your scuba adventures. Then it is time to pack up and get ready to say farewell. Enjoy a delicious lunch before you are picked up by the transfer vessel at 3:00 PM to return to Cairns.
