Uncover 2 stunning reef locations on a full day tour to the UNESCO World Heritage-listed Great Barrier Reef. Dive into the clear, crystaline waters of Upolu Cay Reef and Upolu Reef for an unforgettable day of snorkelling with a vast array of vibrant coral and marine life.

At the marina in Cairns, step aboard a luxurious, high-speed 20-metre (65-foot) catamaran. Grab a cup of coffee, take a seat on the sun-drenched deck and set sail for the cerulean Coral Sea. Your skipper steers the way to each reef location depending on the conditions of the day.

Arrive at the Upolu Cay Reef, an occasionally-exposed isle whose appearance shifts with the currents, wind and waves. After a brief orientation, don your snorkel gear and set out to explore the delicate coral formations and technicolour reef fish in the shallow waters.

Then savour a delicious buffet lunch of smoked salmon, chilled prawns, salads and fresh breads, as you cruise to the impressive “Wonder Wall” on the outer edge of the Upolu Reef.

Rising up an astonishing 14 metres (45 feet) from the ocean floor, this vertical coral metropolis is truly magnificent. Swim alongside a naturalist guide as you scope out the reefs, giant clams and sponges that decorate the sea wall, keeping your eyes peeled for darting clownfish, shy stingrays and majestic green sea turtles.

On the return cruise to Cairns, bask on deck as you enjoy a sumptuous spread of tropical fruits, cheese and cake – a sweet ending to a perfect day at sea.
