Great Barrier Reef Cruises

The Great Barrier Reef is a UNESCO World Heritage Site that 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!

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

  • Snorkelling
  • Diving
  • Scenic flights
  • Rainforest tours

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.

Cruise Lines

A number of great cruise lines will sail you away to the magical place that is the Great Barrier Reef. Starting with the ultra luxury liners:

  • Seabourn Encore – one of the newest ships in the Seabourn fleet, the Encore offers fantastic itineraries departing from Sydney and disembarking in Singapore.

Holland America Line’s Oosterdam will take you away in classic cruising style on an adventure from Sydney to Perth (Fremantle) with stops in:

  • Airlie Beach
  • Cairns
  • Great Barrier Reef
  • Darwin
  • Broome
  • Geraldton

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.
