Description

Jump into the water and explore the depths of the Great Barrier Reef!

Departing from Cairns, you will head off to the bird reserve of Michaelmas Cay. Explore its preserved waters and relax for a while on the beach.

After lunch, you will head to Paradise Reef. The clear waters of this 25-metre deep coral reef offer the ideal setting to dive down and meet the local fish and other marine animals.
