Outer Barrier Reef Pontoon with 3 hours at the Reef



Enjoy a leisurely 10.30am departure for this Outer Barrier Reef Pontoon.  The stable reef activity platform is the perfect base for swimmers and non-swimmers to explore. For those that do not want or need a full day at the reef, you will be happy with the shorter 3 hours of reef time that this trip provides.  You can snorkel, visit the underwater observatory, cruise in a semi submersible for coral viewing without even getting wet or just relax on the sundeck with a delicious buffet lunch. The vibrant marine life of the reef awaits you.
