Mission Beach: Great Barrier Reef Snorkel or Dive Cruise

1. Mission Beach: Great Barrier Reef Snorkel or Dive Cruise

Experience a day on board 'Reef Goddess' to the Outer Great Barrier Reef. Begin your adventure at Clump Point Boat Ramp where you'll board MV Reef Goddess. After an introduction and safety briefing from your captain, depart Clump Point and head off to the East sitting on 17 knots reaching your first reef location in under 1 1/2 hours. In the water at the first Outer Great Barrier Reef location (locations are determined on the day to suit weather conditions), you'll have an hour exploring untouched reefs with the crew on hand to assist with your gear and getting going. A free snorkel briefing will cover what to do and what not to do to ensure your safety and enjoyment at the reef. Depart for a 1/2 hour cruise to the second snorkel location and lunch preparation. Arrive at the second location where your friendly crew will serve lunch with cold cuts, fresh prawns, salads, and fresh tropical fruit. After your well-earned lunch, jump in for another hour of learning, exploring, and experiencing one of the world's natural wonders. After more snorkeling or diving, your crew will 'up anchor' and head for home back to beautiful Mission Beach.

An amazing adventure to the Outer Reef. Snorkeling in the turquoise waters amongst many species of fish , and gliding above and around the coral studded reef was something you need to witness. Just make sure you reapply your sunscreen during lunch! Boat crew were professional but friendly and easy going. The prawn lunch was delicious. We’re so glad we did this. Was a beautiful day out swimming and snorkeling in our beautiful Coral Sea exploring one of natures most spectacular sights.

Such an amazing day on the water! All the staff were so friendly and helpful. Beautiful coral, thousands of fish and even saw a shark and a sting ray!

Great trip. Highly recommended if you want to see beautiful reef! Professionally run. We were lucky to have small group of 22

The best! Reefs, crew, time on reefs, food. Better than any of the Cairns offerings.

Scuba diving at the reef was beautiful the dive instructor was great.
