Cairns Snorkelling Tours
Situated on the cusp of the Great Barrier Reef, there is no better gateway to the wonders of the deep than Cairns. A whole host of snorkelling trips depart from Cairns and Port Douglas each day, and you’ll be spoilt for choice, whether you’re an expert in the ocean or have never donned a snorkel mask in your life. If you’re just getting your feet wet a reef boat day trip makes a great introduction, while seasoned snorkellers and divers might prefer to take an overnight boat trips to the outer reef. A variety of departure times are available throughout the day, with the majority of trips departing in the morning and concluding late in the afternoon. Special offers are available periodically, so don’t forget to take a peek at our Current Specials page.

If I have never snorkelled before can I still book?
You do not need to have snorkelled before to book a Cairns snorkel trip on a reef boat departing from Cairns. The staff and guides on board the Cairns reef boats will teach you all you need to know on the boat ride out to the outer reef so that once you arrive at the Great Barrier Reef you'll be ready to snorkel and see all the amazing underwater wonders.

I can't swim, can I still book a Cairns snorkelling trip?
Yes, if you are unable to swim but are really keen to have a go then as long as you are confident enough the instructors will be able to offer you flotation devices to help you stay buoyant and offer tips to help make your Cairns snorkelling trip to the Great Barrier reef everything you hope it will be. There are always life guards on duty to assist and keep an eye on you , but with the flotation device you'll just need to lie in the water and breath through the snorkel, its that simple! Please be sure to let the staff on board the boat know that you are unable to swim so they can take the necessary steps to ensure your Cairns snorkelling trip to the reef is both a fun and safe one.
