This trip provides a fantastic family friendly reef day!
Glass Bottom Boat
Enjoy a spectacular top-down view of coral and marine life without getting wet. With the reef only 0.5 to 3 metres under the glass, the glass bottom boat tour offers a clear and close-up view of hard and soft corals, giant clams, anemones, fish and more, explained by one of our marine experts. You might even spot a sea turtle! Tours departs regularly throughout the day.
Semi Submersible Boat
When you sit in the hull of our semi-submersible boat, your window is below sea level giving a ‘fish eye’ perspective of the Great Barrier Reef. From the comfort of your seat, experience the wonder of the reef as you cruise over stunning coral gardens, past staggering drop offs, and spot amazing marine animals. Tours depart regularly throughout the day.
This pontoon is home to the only waterslide on the Great Barrier Reef from Cairns. Swirling eight metres down from our sun deck on a 30-metre spiral into the tropical ocean, see if you can beat 110 slides in one day – that’s the record! Available all day and supervised by lifeguards, the waterslide is a hit with big kids and little kids alike.
Located at one end of the pontoon, the underwater observatory is a room below sea level with a huge window allowing you to look out on the fish and coral of the reef, while staying dry! It’s open all day, so simply descend the stairs to enjoy the view whenever you like. A great viewing time is during the fish feeding presentation when hundreds of fish swarm near the window.
