There are many ways that you can explore the colourful underwater world. You don't even have to get wet! Our 'stay dry' options include the underwater viewing chamber, where you can watch the antics of tropical fish (and divers!), or a fascinating semi-submersible ride. The semi-sub takes you on a cruise around the reef, getting you up close to a variety of coral and fish life. The experience is just like snorkelling or diving, but you don't get wet! You can chill out on the sun deck of the pontoon and admire the great expanse of the reef around you. The aqua colour of the water will astound you. If you really want a good view, then take to the skies with a heli-flight. The flight is an additional cost, but is an experience of a lifetime!
For those happy to dive in, you can snorkel the day away! Snorkelling is an incredible way to see the reef and if you haven't done it before, we have plenty of staff on hand to help you out. Diving is an additional cost, but it simply can't be beaten. We offer both introductory dives and certified dives.
This is a fully inclusive day cruise, so throughout the day you won't need to be reaching for your wallet. Of course, a big day out on the water means you'll have a good appetite, so all tea and coffee as well as morning and afternoon tea and an all-you can-eat buffet lunch are included. We also include all snorkelling gear, semi-submersible rides, access to the underwater viewing chamber, wetsuit usage and complimentary coach pick up and drop offs for those staying at Airlie Beach.
