Have a special day to remember forever!!!! Add an amazing helicopter scenic flight into a day trip to the reef. The colours of the reef from the air are more noticeable and much prettier, it is a mix of bright beautiful colours. Also, it is a great opportunity for travellers to take amazing photos of the area, including sea animals such as turtles, stingrays and whales.
Reef Magic Cruises, an Australian owned operator, travels daily to the outer reef on their spacious and fast air-conditioned catamaran. The day provides visitors with a full 5 hours exploring the corals and the marine life of the Great Barrier Reef.
Reef Magic Cruises or Marine World take visitors to Moore Reef, located about 45km from Cairns. The reef offers clear waters with less sediment resulting in good underwater visibility, this way providing everyone on board with great snorkelling and diving experiences. The coral quality is superior and the diversity of reef life is wide.
Marine World is suitable for all ages and swimming abilities from the first time snorkellers to the most experienced divers. Visitors have access to a large range of reef activities in a friendly and personalised atmosphere such as unlimited snorkelling, semi-submersible tours, glass bottom boat tours, underwater observatory, fish feeding and much more.
