Great Barrier Reef Day Tours

Reef Day Tours

Tours depart to the Great Barrier Reef daily from both Cairns and Port Douglas 365 days a year ferrying around 3 million passengers to snorkel and scuba dive the biggest natural aquarium in the world. All of these reef day tours go to specific destinations that they have permits to visit which ensures the reef is not overcrowded in the one location. Some of these reef boat cruises go to islands and sand cays whilst others simply have guests entering the water from the rear of the boat. You can even enjoy a half day reef tour when you combine your boat cruise with a helicopter transfer to or from the reef.
