Tour: Dreamtime Dive and Snorkel, Great Barrier Reef, Cairns
Operator: Reef Magic Cruises
Duration: Full day (approx 8.5 hours)
Accessible from: The tour departs from Cairns Reef Terminal, which is only a short walk from Cairns Cruise Ship Terminal and most Cairns hotels.
Details: Dreamtime Dive and Snorkel takes guests to a number of different locations on the outer Great Barrier Reef, where no other tours go. It also offers the only Indigenous cultural and educational experience on the reef, with Indigenous Rangers authentically sharing the stories of their heritage and the cultural importance of Sea Country for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples. Guests board the boat in the morning, before a 90 minute trip out to the reef where they will have an opportunity to relax and enjoy the view. Once at the reef, guests can elect to undertake a range of activities. There are glass bottom boat tours, as well as optional scenic helicopter flights and of course diving and snorkeling. The diving and snorkeling is spectacular at both of the reef sites and it’s a fantastic activity regardless of your swimming experience and ability. Reef Magic provides everything for your safety, including lifejackets if needed. If you’re lucky you’ll see turtles, stingrays, parrotfish and more. The biodiversity living among the bright and colourful coral is seemingly endless. One of the best ways to tick the Great Barrier Reef off your bucket list.
