Dive and snorkel the Great Barrier Reef without the crowds when you embark on a two-day Cairns sailing adventure experiencing the best outer reef sites. With a maximum of only 12 guests, Coral Sea Dreaming is an intimate Great Barrier Reef dive trip visiting spectacular reefs with amazing coral and varied marine life on the very edge of the Continental Shelf.

Your Great Barrier Reef adventure includes unlimited snorkelling at the reef locations visited, and you can choose to add diving to your trip for an additional fee. Once in the water, you can have up close and personal encounters with turtles, reef sharks, barracuda and Maori wrasse as we visit up to five different sites on one of the world's most pristine and diverse ecosystems over two days.

Coral Sea Dreaming can access 28 moorings on nine different reef systems so our reef locations are some of the best in Cairns and allow us to select the ideal site for the conditions on the day. For almost 20 years Coral Sea Dreaming has been taking passengers to pristine outer reef locations such as Flynn, Milln and Norman reefs.

After a day of exceptional diving and snorkelling, sit on the deck as the sun sets and enjoy the peacefulness of the Great Barrier Reef at night. Wake up to the sun rising over the Coral Sea and enjoy an early morning dive or snorkel in warm, tropical waters teeming with fish.

There is never a rush on Coral Sea Dreaming and we insist you enjoy all the wonders of the Great Barrier Reef at your own pace. Consistently rated one of Cairns’ best reef adventures, we invite you to join our fun and friendly crew on the holiday of a lifetime. On Coral Sea Dreaming, our aim is to fulfill your dreams.
