Great Barrier Reef Tours from Cairns

Great Barrier Reef Tours cruise from Cairns to Fitzroy Island in only 25 minutes. Less travel with more time for to snorkel, relax or explore the rainforest.

Unlike other Great Barrier Reef tours to tiny coral cays such as Green Island, Fitzroy Island is much larger with its own mountains and rainforests.

Once part of mainland Australia, over the past 6000 years a coral reef has formed around Fitzroy Island, meaning you can snorkel over the Great Barrier Reef from right off the beach.

Our Great Barrier Reef tours aboard the glass bottom boat let you see the huge variety of fish and corals up close.
