Bucket-List Worthy Great Barrier Reef Day Tour & Cruises From Cairns
With an array of activities right from swimming, sailing, snorkelling, water slides, diving and time at sun decks, underwater observatories etc, there’s something for everyone at the reefs. Topping the list of Great Barrier Reef activities are undoubtedly snorkelling tours and scuba diving trips, for the sole reason that there’s no better way to see the reefs. Operating almost everyday, all you have to do is to pick the best from the lot and book to begin your underwater adventure!
While diving is the best option for savvy swimmers to explore the diversity of reefs and marine life better, a beginner’s snorkelling tour is the go-to option for non-swimmers. If you’re not keen to get wet, don a sailor’s hat and go on board a Great Barrier Reef cruise or try kayaking between the islands.
If not, go on a field trip on one of the lush islands skirting the reefs and enjoy a rainforest boardwalk with an informative guide, or see the reefs from the glass bottom of your cruise boat. If looking to indulge, go for a scenic helicopter trip and you’re sure to see the reefs from an entirely different perspective! With so many Great Barrier Reef day tours from Cairns and other nearby locales, there’s no room for complaints! Why not book one for yourself and stay back in one of the many mind-blowing oceanside retreats for getting a fill of the corals even further?
