Great Barrier Reef Cruises

The Great Barrier Reef is a UNESCO World Heritage Site and one of the seven wonders of the world. Located off the coast of Queensland in the north-eastern Australia, it is a must-visit for everyone. This unique region is home to:

  • Over 2900 coral reefs
  • 900 islands

Its no wonder that more than 1,5 million visitors come to see and experience it every year!

The Best Time to Visit

Queensland is, generally speaking, fantastic to visit all-year round because of the state’s mild and comfortable weather.

The Great Barrier Reef is a little different, though. Most boat tours start around June due to a couple of reasons:

  • Humidity is low
  • Heat subsides
  • Waters are calm and clear

If you are looking to snorkel or scuba dive, consider cruising over to the Great Barrier Reef in April and May to avoid the rush of tourists.

Things to Do

There are so many ways to explore the Great Barrier Reef and its treasures.

Snorkelling and diving

Book a half- or a whole-day experience and discover the magical underwater world with a professional diving instructor, equipment and, sometimes also lunch on a beach included.

Horse riding

Ride through the world’s oldest rainforest in Cape Tribulation and enjoy spectacular views of the Daintree National Park.

Island exploration

Discover Magnetic Island’s 23 amazing bays and beaches, hike through the Daintree National Park by day or night, and explore the Jungle that is Cape Tribulation with a guide.

Scenic helicopter flights

View Great Barrier Reef from above and be amazed.

Due to the process of global warming and, in particular, the fact that the oceans are severely overheated because of the hot weather, these stunning coral reefs have been bleaching and dying faster than ever. So, now is a good time to cruise to the Great Barrier Reef to be able to admire this natural wonder.
