Take your first glimpse of one of the world's natural wonders. Perhaps you would enjoy a luxury cruise to Agincourt Reef on the edge of the Continental Shelf on board a Quicksilver Cruises luxury catamaran, or cruise to Green Island with Big Cat Green Island Cruises - an amazing sand cay formed naturally right on top of the Great Barrier Reef. Both cruises offer you a chance to get up close and personal with some incredible hard and soft corals, turtles, and the most colourful reef fish you have ever seen. You can enjoy a guided trip on a semi-submersible submarine, a snorkelling adventure, introductory or certified diving with a fully qualified guide or just sit back and enjoy the view while your every need is catered for. You can even take a helicopter flight over the Great Barrier Reef and take some pictures that your family and friends will be forever envious of.
Why not extend your escape to Tropical North Queensland and let multi award-winning Coral Expeditions introduce you to all the hidden jewels of the Great Barrier Reef. Their three, four and seven night small ship cruises allow you to swim, snorkel and SCUBA dive amid the fish and corals in the clear tropical waters. Or you can join their marine biologist aboard the glass bottom boat, stroll golden sandy beaches on remote coral cays or visit secluded tropical islands and ancient rainforests, while their on-board experts interpret the natural wonders of the reef, rainforest and island habitats. Coral Princess Cruises will show you the reef most visitors never see — and you can choose to be as adventurous or as relaxed as you please.
