Over 5 hours shared at the two reefs, swimming, snorkelling or using our glass bottom boat. This part of the world is so beautiful you simply must explore it. We take you there in a fast modern boat, small number of passsengers and great food to keep you going all day!

  • 2 beautiful locations
  • Small numbers
  • Over 5 hours on location
  • Great equipment
  • Glass Bottom Boat
  • Bird watching (weather permitting)

We bop along reaching 24 knots so in a little over an hour, you are the first to arrive at Michaelmas Cay. Dive or snorkel from the boat or take the ferry to the beach & snorkel in the calm & sheltered waters of the island.

After a couple of hours, the crowds arrive, so we skedaddle off to Hastings Reef. A very different reef to Michaelmas Cay, where there is more diving, snorkelling or stay dry in the Glass Bottom Boat. After exploring Hastings we scoot back to Cairns. With 2 1/2 hours at each location, there is ample time to enjoy all that each location offers.
