Join Cairns Best Reef Tour, and travel on EVOLUTION to the Outer Great Barrier Reef for snorkelling with all gear and briefings included. Visit two exclusive reef sites, with plenty of time to enjoy relaxing and sun bathing on three deck levels. Dial up the adventure and choose from a variety of optional activities such as Introductory diving or Certified diving. From Hastings Reef you can take a 10-minute scenic helicopter flight from our exclusive helicopter pontoon or join our Semi-Submarine coral viewing tour before cruising back to Cairns.

​For First Time Divers; after an in-depth briefing from our expert dive staff, we gear you up and jump in the water for the thrill of a lifetime as we guide you through this amazing wonderland.

For Certified Divers; either buddy up with a friend or upgrade to include a PADI dive guide as we plunge into the abundance of marine life and explore the amazing ecology of the reef.

​In the afternoon there's a choice of a ride on our Semi-Submersible coral viewing tour (weather dependent), more snorkelling or diving, or just laze around on our massive sun-decks on three levels.

Finally cruise back to Cairns while joining our on-board entertainer for some live music together with a free glass of wine, cheese and biscuits on the lower deck.
