First activity will be a Certified or Introductory dive at Saxon or Norman Reef before heading out to do some free time snorkelling. For First Time Divers; after an in-depth briefing from our expert dive staff, we gear you up and jump in the water for the thrill of a lifetime as we guide you through this amazing wonderland. For Certified Divers; either buddy up with a friend or join our guides as we plunge into the abundance of marine life and explore the amazing ecology of the reef.

While you indulge in a chef-prepared Aussie BBQ lunch, we will make our way to Hastings Reef for an amazing 10 Minute Helicopter Scenic Flight over the reef looking for turtles, manta rays and taking in the 360 degrees of ocean views, tropical sand cays and islands off in the distance.

Returning back to our reef vessel, you have an option to join the Semi-Submersible Tour ($10 payable on board or $10 pre-booked and weather permitted) learning about the reef from a dry seat. Having some more time to snorkel you are collected back on board to enjoy live entertainment by our local entertainer while you are treated to complimentary cheese, crackers and a glass of wine.
