Your Day
Enjoy a 1.5-hour scenic cruise on an air-conditioned catamaran to the Sunlover Moore Reef Pontoon located on the Outer Great Barrier Reef. The pontoon is well-equipped, providing all the necessary snorkeling gear.

This is a family freindly Great Barrier Reef tour offering children a safe ocean pool and 30-meter spiral waterslide. For those who prefer to stay dry, semi-submersible and glass-bottom boat tours or the underwater observatory offer stunning views of the reef's vibrant coral and diverse marine life, including green sea turtles.

After a morning on the Outer Reef the tour continues to Fitzroy Island, where a delicious lunch is served on board the vessel. Spend a leisurely three hours in this idyllic tropical paradise. Fitzroy Island offers a rainforest landscape accented with granite outcrops, and coral-fringed beaches. Snorkeling equipment is included.

It was a great experience. Though the 2 hour ride to Moore Reef was very choppy and we all got sea sick but in the end it was all worth it!!
