The Great Barrier Reef is an Australian icon. Listed on the World Heritage register, thousands of people from across the globe come to Far North Queensland each and every year to see first-hand this incomparable natural marvel.

To provide visitors to the region with a day of fun and adventure as equally unforgettable as the reef itself, we have put together the ‘Get High’ package. This is the reef tour that has it all!

Your day starts at the Reef Fleet Terminal in Cairns, where you will be welcomed onto our modern, high speed reef vessel which is fitted with high tech computerised stabilisers to make your journey out to the reef as smooth and as comfortable as possible. Accommodating only 140 passengers, travelling with us ensures that your day will not be crowded and you have easy access to all activities and facilities.

Once you arrive at either Saxon or Norman reef, you will have the opportunity to do your first snorkelling of the day. Following an indulgent Aussie BBQ lunch of steak, sausages, fresh local fish and prawns, and fresh salads, you will motor to Hastings Reef for a once-in-a-life-time, 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 the vessel, you have an option to join us on the Semi-Submersible Tour ($10 payable on board & weather permitted) learning about the reef from a dry seat. The return journey is another event in itself with live entertainment and complimentary cheese, crackers and a glass of wine to allow you to take in the day’s events and unwind.

Come and ‘Get High’ with us!

NB: No scuba diving is included in this package.
