See nature’s greatest gift to Australia, the living ecosystem of the 2300 km-wide Great Barrier Reef on this full-day Reef Magic Cruise tour. Explore exclusive reef locations at the spectacular offshore Marine World activity platform and discover the marvels of the underwater world.

With an all-inclusive package that includes a luxury cruise, marine biologist presentation, semi-submersible & glass bottom boat tours, fish feeding & identification, underwater observatory, tea and buffet lunch….you can’t ask for more!

On the day of your Marine World Outer Reef cruise tour, get to your cruise boarding point at Cairns. Board a modern catamaran, Reef Magic Cruises, for a 90-minute cruise to the Marine World activity platform. With a vessel capacity of 300, entry to the vessel is limited to 200 people to offer exclusivity and comfort.

Sip on your morning tea and enjoy an interactive Marine Biology presentation/talk en route to Marine World. A permanently moored activity platform situated close to a sheltered coral lagoon, Marine World is the perfect place to see the coral gardens of the World Heritage Listed Great Barrier Reef, up-close.

Spend over 5 hours at some unique reef spots chosen exclusively for your tour group. Try out all activities of your choice and go snorkelling for a view of the coral gardens you won’t get anywhere else! Snorkel and swim to your heart’s content, with all necessary equipment provided by the operator. Rest your sea-legs with semi-submersible and glass bottom boat tours with commentary. See the colourful coral landscapes and its vibrant inhabitants at the underwater observatory and throw some bites out for your finned-friends during the fish-feeding & identification session.

An appetising buffet lunch in between ensures you keep your spirits up for the whole tour. For those longing to indulge in more reef activities, the tour offers numerous upgrades for you to choose from. Get back on the cruise, stroll its outer decks and enjoy a cup of refreshing tea as your cruise takes you back to Cairns, just in time for sunset.
