The wonderful crew of Down Under Tours sets safety as a center of a super fun day both going to and later snorkeling or Scuba diving later on.
We did a marine biology tour of the reef with Ali who was fantastic, so enthusiastic and knowledgable.

Wet Suits, Life Jackets and Snorkel and Mask were included with the scuba, snuba and guided tours costing a small amount more, but certainly well worth it.
Snorkelling, glass-bottomed boat tours and the semi-submersible are all included, along with a delicious buffet lunch, tea and coffee.

I've done several snorkeling tours and this company with 2 boats (this one was catamaran called Ocean Freedom and the other is a sail boat called Ocean Free that takes you to snorkel and explore around green island.
The members of the crew have a big knowledge about the Sealife and offered guided snorkel tours, what was really interesting as they pointed out the really cool fish and corals and gave a lot of information.

Had the pleasure of a day and night rainforest spotlighting tour with Wait-a-While tours with dinner at the lovely village of Yungaburra.

I also took part in the submarine tour, which is run when the conditions are good enough, and that was amazing too (saw a sea turtle).
I ended up doing everything; tour of the reef with a marine biologist, glass bottom boat, helicopter home.

I especially liked this aspect of the tour as the tour was very private, in comparison to the other places and tours I have been on with a million tours and tourists everywhere.

Thanks so much to the crew at Cairns Ninebot tours, great fun and very easy to get on with.
Ninebots are a smaller lighter more manoeuvrable modern Segway which we found easier and more responsive that other Segway tours we have done overseas and in WA.

With so many options for reef tours I chose this one because sail boats are much more romantic than large power boats.
... you are in the sea, so what do you expect? the crew was perfect with us, very nice and experienced, we had a great time with them the tour was amazing and both green island and the snorkeling tour were superb.

Tours start on the half-hour and take 2.5-3 hours; each group has their own guide.
The guided tour is just one option lasting 2 1/2 hours you learn about bush tucker, bush medicine, throw a boomerang and spear, and witness aboriginal dance by engaging performers obviously proud of their culture.

We went on one of the FREE guided snorkel tours and saw an amazing array of coral and sea life.
An extremely well run tour - the standout being the super attentive and friendly staff, who made all participants feel relaxed and safe.

Other reef tours you are stuck on the boat all day and can’t go anywhere which is very boring.
Dave O also provided us with our safety demonstration and sized us up for our snorkeling gear, which is provided by the tour.
