Discover one of nature's most valuable treasures on our Great Barrier Reef snorkeling boat trip and see for revel in its incredible beauty. Hop on board our sailing boat directly in Cairns and allow us to whisk you away on a personalised day trip far from any crowds, where you can explore tropical island beaches, turquoise waters, the famous reef itself and its bustling submarine wildlife.

To start the Great Barrier Reef snorkeling boat trip, we will embark on a 2h trip on our sailing schooner towards Green Island, an island located 26km off the coast of Cairns. Here, at this tropical paradise, we will moor at our exclusive location known as Pinnacle Reef (part of the Great Barrier Reef Marine Park), where you will have 4.5h to spend your time as you wish. You can snorkel in the crystal clear waters and explore the shoals of colourful fish and other animals that live here, or go on land to explore the tropical rainforest environment of the island. Of course, you're also welcome to simply relax and sunbathe. It's your trip and you can choose what to do.

And if that's not enough, next to your Great Barrier reef snorkeling experience, we've got you covered with food and beverages throughout the day. You'll be served danish pastries, fruit, coffee and tea upon boarding, a large smorgasbord lunch served at our mooring location, and cheese, crackers, cake and even a glass of red wine on our trip back to Cairns.
