Snorkelling Tours

One of the most exciting moments a nature-lover can experience is sailing on an exclusive yacht, in anticipation of what lies ahead – the underwater adventure that a Cairns snorkelling tour offers. Far North Queensland’s Cairns region truly is heaven on earth, and what better way to experience it than in the world’s biggest and best reef. The Great Barrier Reef is 344,400 km² of blissful coral and marine life; the best way to immerse yourself in this magical environment is with one of our premier snorkelling tours. Whether it’s your first or your thirtieth snorkelling escapade, the array of tours on offer through Cairns Tours gives you the greatest chance of experiencing whatever it is that your heart desires.

The world-renowned Great Barrier Reef contains a variety of stunning subaquatic locations, teeming with some of the most beautiful and treasured wildlife in the world. The tours we offer also include a ‘Liveaboard’ tour; the Pro Dive: Liveaboard, three-day two-night adventure has you experiencing all that the reef life has to offer. Alternatively, if you’re looking for something a little more ‘short and sweet’, the Big Cat: Green Island Reef Cruise half-day tour may be more your style. Either way, you’re bound to find a snorkelling tour that fits your timeframe and budget, and that leaves you with a total feeling of awe!   Less
