Thinking about heading out from Cairns on a Great Barrier Reef snorkel tour?

Well, jump on board Evolution with the Crew of Down Under Cruise & Dive for one of the best value day trips out to the reef!

After being collected from your Cairns accomodation you’ll head to the marina and jump on board Evolution – your base for the day.

This state of the art, 120 foot long vessel is designed for speed and comfort, so you’ll quickly cruise to the outer reefs where some incredible snorkelling awaits.

Marvel at the colourful coral gardens, swim past schools of beautiful fish and keep your eye out for the resident turtles that call this area home too.

With up to 5 hours on the reef, across two stunning dive sites, you’ll have plenty of time to explore, before grabbing some tasty lunch and heading back to Cairns in the afternoon.

Want to include and Intro Dive or Certified Dive with your day trip?
