What to Expect
Travel reference:

Discover one of the great natural wonders of the world with a helicopter scenic flight and Reef Cruise!

Approximately 40km from Cairns, enjoy a day on board a new multi-level pontoon at Moore Reef, complete with sundeck and the only theme-park style water slide on the reef. With options to transfer to and from the platform by helicopter (and cruise the other) or take to the sky on a joy flight, you will have the best seat to witness this natural wonder.

During your 4 hours at the reef platform, choose from a range of fun activities, including the underwater observatory, riding on a glass bottom boat to view the colourful corals, snorkelling (all equipment is included), fish feeding, an identification session with a qualified marine biologist and lots more. For children, there is also a water slide that will deliver them straight down to the reef.

When you get hungry, enjoy a sumptuous buffet lunch, and morning and afternoon tea is also included. Then continue your reef adventure with expert guides providing commentary so you can learn all about the reef and the many types of marine life that live within it. You can also choose to take a 10 minute helicopter ride, or go all-out and fly back to Cairns at the end of your day on the reef on a spectacular scenic helicopter ride.

There's so much to enjoy out on the Outer Reef, do it all with this great one day tour!
