Full-Day Reef Cruise onboard EVOLUTION

Experience the Great Barrier Reef on a day trip from Cairns. Down Under Cruise and Dive has been voted one of the Top 5 Best Day Cruises in the World by Tripadvisor 2020, so you know you will be in GREAT hands! Whether you are a snorkeller, first-time scuba diver, certified diver or a non-swimmer, our Cairns Reef Tour has something for everyone.

Departing Cairns, the 35-metre superyacht Evolution takes only 80-minutes to reach the first outer reef location - one of the fastest Cairns Great Barrier Reef Tours. You will visit two exclusive outer reef locations over 5 hours, with plenty of time to snorkel, relax and sunbathe on three deck levels.

Love to scuba dive? Add introductory or certified dives at checkout for even more adventure! We cater for both beginner divers and PADI certified divers and have a specialised dive deck for a comfortable entry into the water.

25-minute Scenic Flight over The Great Barrier Reef

From Hastings Reef, you will board a luxury 6-seater helicopter where you will enjoy a 25-minute scenic helicopter flight over the Reef and Sand Cays back to Cairns.

Take to the air from our helicopter pontoon at Hastings Reef and enjoy a spectacular scenic flight onboard a 6-seater luxury aircraft from Nautilus Aviation. Experience the sheer size and beauty of the Great Barrier Reef and gain a true appreciation of one of the seven natural wonders of the world.
