Hop aboard a catamaran, for a 1½ hour transfer to the purpose-built pontoon at the Great Barrier Reef Marine Park.

Here you will have around 3 hours to enjoy a variety of activities. The submerged paradise can be explored during a short ride in the glass bottom boat or from the pontoon’s underwater viewing chamber - these options allow you to view the underwater world without getting wet. For those wishing to get closer to the marine habitat, there will be plenty of time to swim, snorkel or simply relax and admire the views.

During your visit enjoy a buffet lunch accompanied by tea or coffee.
