The Great Barrier Reef started to form 2 million years ago. It stretches over 2,300km, running from just north of Bundaberg to the top of Cape York Peninsula. It is actually made up of over 2,900 reefs, 300 coral cays and 618 continental islands, now you can see why it got its name. Here you’ll find 1,500 species of fish, 400 species of coral, 4,000 species of molluscs, 6 species of turtles (some on the endangered list) and some of the largest populations of dugong in the world.
There are many Cairns reef tours to do, but the Cairns Premier Reef and Island Tours’ team not only offer a Cairns’ snorkel and dive reef trip, but a total experience you will not forget. Both of their Cairns reef tours offer a unique Great Barrier Reef and Island / Cay experience.
Ocean Free is a true sailing tour where the engines really do get switched off (wind prevailing). Surveyed to carry 52, Ocean Free limits its daily passenger numbers to just 25, ensuring a truly personalised and unforgettable Great Barrier Reef experience. This is Cairns’ only sailing tour to offer a Great Barrier Reef and tropical Green Island destination, in one day. You have over 4.5 hours to experience and explore these two great locations, and the amount of time spent between the reef and island is completely up to you!
