Marine World Great Barrier Reef Cruise
Explore the outer reef with a day cruise package built around you. Whether you are a non-swimmer, first-time snorkeller or certified diver we have the package to suit you. Our glass bottom boats mean you don’t miss out on any of the vibrant marine life that you pass by. Hear the fascinating presentation from our Marine Biologist on the way to the reef and take part in a fish feeding and identification session. Our underwater observatory and semi-submersible tour plunge you right into the beating heart of the Great Barrier Reef. What’s more, every cruise includes an extensive hot and cold buffet lunch as well as complimentary tea, coffee and water all day long.
Want to add more? Choose from one of the optional activities: Introductory scuba diving: no experience necessary! This is the most immersive way to explore the reef, and is an unforgettable experience. Certified scuba diving: includes up to three dives in a single day with a dedicated dive tender. Helmet diving: suits non-swimmers, this is a dive-style experience that takes you to a depth of 3 meters without getting your head wet. Guided snorkel tour with a Marine Biologist Reef-scenic helicopter flight: the most spectacular way to see the reef in ten minutes!

Explore the Daintree - Full-Day Tour
Sit back and relax in comfort as you explore the Daintree aboard a custom-built air-conditioned 4x4 while listening to informative and entertaining commentary by your local naturalist guide who has extensive knowledge of flora, fauna, history of the Daintree as well as Indigenous Aboriginal culture. Your first stop is the Daintree River Cruise Centre. After a light morning tea with coffee, tea and biscuits it’s all aboard for an informative river cruise! Cruise down the Daintree River as you keep a watch out for crocodiles and other endemic wildlife while you relax and take in the serenity of the Daintree River. This is an absolute highlight of the day! As you make your way up over the Alexandra Range, there is time to stop and pause to take in the breathtaking panoramic view from the Alexandra Lookout. Afterwards, your local guide will take you into the World Heritage Daintree Rainforest along the boardwalk where you will experience and learn all about the oldest rainforest in the world, the Daintree. After working up an appetite with all this adventure, it’s time for a tasty lunch at Cape Tribulation. Enjoy a meal with your fellow travellers before making your way down onto Cape Tribulation Beach for a light stroll and experience first-hand where the rainforest meets the reef, an iconic photo opportunity! The custom-made vehicle will take you down the famous Bloomfield Track. After a 7km drive through the rugged wilderness, you will stop for a dip at one of the rainforest's secret jewels; far from the bustling crowds; the pristine freshwater Emmagen Creek. The day would not be complete without a stop for a delicious homemade ice cream at the Daintree Ice-creamery. The ice-cream flavours are extraordinary and made from local produce grown right on the property! Finally, crossing the Daintree River by Ferry, your day is complete as you are dropped back to your accommodation.
