Great Barrier Reef Snorkel & Helicopter [CNS55]
Day Tour, Great Barrier Reef Snorkel & Glassbottom Cruise with Helicopter Ride. Cairns, Australia.

Take a helicopter over the Daintree Rainforest before meeting up with a platform stationed out on the magnificent Great Barrier Reef.

Experience a scenic helicopter flight over the lush, tropical Daintree Rainforest, flying over pure white sand cays and viewing the amazing kaleidoscope of colors which make the Great Barrier Reef.

Land at Marine World platform, which caters to all activity levels.

Snorkel in the sheltered coral lagoon, join a Marine Biologist on a Guided Snorkel safari, or go scuba diving (no experience necessary)

For those not confident in swimming, stay dry and view the reef from the semi-submersible reef viewer, glass bottom boat or underwater observatory or try a Helmet Dive for a scuba-style experience without getting your hair wet.

If simply relaxing & soaking up the tropical warmth is more your style then take time out on the spacious sundeck where you will also find the regions only reef-based massage therapist.  You’ll have plenty of time to do it all!

At the end of the day, you will head back to Cairns aboard a fast, stable catamaran.
