MV Kangaroo Explorer
The M.V. Kangaroo Explorer is a modern 25 metre catamaran specifically designed for Queensland coastal cruising. Each of our 16 cabins (twin, double and 4-berth) is fully air-conditioned, carpeted, has its own en-suite facilities and port hole or window. On the main deck there is a spacious saloon served by a top class galley and a well stocked bar. The top deck offers an enclosed air-conditioned sun lounge as well as an open and shaded sundeck. There is a library situated in the sun lounge for your convenience. The Kangaroo Explorer is equipped with a spacious dive deck providing easy access to and from the water.

This is a unique opportunity to cruise and snorkel through one of the world's great natural wonders in style and comfort. Start the day with a leisurely breakfast then relax on the sundeck between snorkels and let the world drift slowly by enjoying the remoteness of your location. Our chef will tantalise your taste buds with excellent meals freshly prepared on the boat. Most dietary requirements are catered for.

Snorkel the amazing Outer Great Barrier Reef! See spectacular coral gardens teeming with a vast array of marine life. Join in the fun aboard the MV Kangaroo Explorer or laze on the spacious sun deck.
