Recommended for a day trip out to the Great Barrier Reef: a must for a visit to the Queensland coast. For me a day trip is just perfect so that there’s enough time to spend relaxing on the cruise but also with some fun time at the pontoon on the reef. A one-way cruise trip is about 3 hours from Airlie Beach (with a stop over Hamilton Island) and the view along the way is amazing. Reef activities were great to begin with (the free ones) including a ride on the semi-submersible for reef viewing (with a guide) and snorkelling. There were also other added activities at cost including snorkelling, diving, helicopter flights over reefs, available for purchase on the cruise. NB that around 2 hours out to sea cellular reception is generally lost for the rest of the day until the cruise comes back close to shore. Lunch is included and was sufficient.

What an adventure! Dani and Kane were super funny and friendly. Made a stormy day shinny. First and ever experience on a rafting speed boat with heavy rain hitting the face, but dani offered everyone a rain jacket that was very sweet. Even though the weather on the boat was super cold and horrible, they still made us smile and laugh none stop! Sunny at the beach and snorkel sites, with absolutely stunning views. Wish we could have more time on the north beach. This is not just a day trip, also a rafting experience!
