What to Expect
Travel reference:

Enjoy your extended trip exploring the underwater playground of the Great Barrier Reef!

After being picked up from your Cairns accommodation you will make your way to the marina to start your two day adventure. From here you will enjoy the first part of your trip with a ride out to the Great Barrier Reef on board a brand new, state of the art and sleek catamaran that seats up to 80 passengers. You will cruise out from Cairns to the Norman, Saxon, and Hastings Reef systems in comfort and style! 

With 17 exclusive moorings on the Outer Great Barrier Reef, rest assured that you'll have an incredible Great Barrier Reef experience right from the first day. The dive sites are frequented by myriads of tropical and Palegic Fish, Rays, Turtles, (friendly) Sharks and the ever popular diver friendly Maori Wrasse. Locations are chosen each day based on weather conditions and water clarity so as to ensure excellent snorkelling and dive opportunities.

In between diving and snorkelling the magnificent reef jump back on board to enjoy a range of snacks and refreshments to keep your energy levels high! A delicious tropical buffet lunch will give you the boost that you need for an afternoon back in the water, before heading to the Liveaboard vessel the OceanQuest.

On board the OceanQuest there are 18 Twin Cabins with two single beds and 4 Double Cabins that have a double bed, all cabins are equipped with air conditioning, and en-suite bathroom facilities for your comfort. OceanQuest not only provides a spacious and comfortable 'home away from home' on the Great Barrier Reef where you can relax and enjoy the views but also serves up delicious meals prepared by the wonderful onboard chefs.

Once settled to your rooms, it will be time for dinner! After which you can choose to relax on board, share stories from the day's adventures, experience the "Sharks in the Dark" program, or for Certified Divers, there's an opportunity to jump back into the water again for a Night dive. Your action-packed first day on the ocean will definitely ensure that you have a good night's sleep!  

The next morning wake up to watch the sun rise over the Great Barrier Reef. For the enthusiasts you can even start your morning off with a dive to watch the 'changing of the guard', witnessing the night patrol go to bed, whilst the critters of the day come to life again! Enjoy a hearty breakfast, before you have the option of more diving and snorkelling around this location. After lunch you will follow the same path back to Cairns, meeting up with the day-trip transfer vessel for one last dive before heading back to shore.

This overnight tour offers a truly unique experience for all divers and snorkellers wanting to explore this pristine underwater playground. You can select a dive package that suits your experience or have the option of enjoying a snorkelling tour of the Reef.
