This incredible Half Day Great Barrier Reef Cruise is back again for school holidays! Great for families and friends who only have half a day to see the reef.

Visit the Great Barrier Reef on a special Half Day cruise. Enjoy snorkelling, semi-submersible boat rides, the underwater observatory and a buffet lunch.

The day trip to our pontoon departs Airlie Beach on selected dates in September and October, journeying past spectacular islands enroute to the outer Great Barrier Reef.

Once at the reef, board our incredible interactive pontoon and spend the morning exploring the colourful underwater world of magnificent corals, colourful fish and marine life.

With approximately 2.5hrs on the Great Barrier Reef there is plenty of time to find Nemo, George and Wally – our resident marine life!
