Relax and enjoy Great Barrier Reef Diving, Snorkelling and Sailing Charters from Cairns, Australia. The smallest number of divers and snorkelers are taken on our Great Barrier Reef Tours, 12, yes that’s right only twelve people for that more personal experience. The scuba diving and snorkelling sites we sail to are not frequented by the large boats, so you get to experience something different. These outer reefs are chosen for their unique coral formations & abundant marine life. We want you to have the holiday you have been looking forward to. So it’s up to you how you want to spend your reef liveaboard adventure. You can explore the Cairns reefs and enjoy activities including snorkelling, introductory & certified scuba diving. If you’re looking for a little more relaxing trip, simply come aboard with a great book and enjoy the serenity and the beauty of the Great Barrier Reef. If you wish you can join in and help sail the boat or just ‘supervise’ from the deck. Our objective is to allow you to experience the reef at your own pace. Our knowledgeable, environmentally aware and friendly crew will pay every attention to your comfort and well being. Our company is focused and actively participates in assisting researchers and environmental protection and awareness projects for coral reefs and marine life globally.

All done to ensure that you return from your Australian scuba dive and sail adventure with fantastic memories to last a lifetime. Private yacht charters around the Cairns reefs and islands are available on all our sailing yachts for every occasion.
