Outer Barrier Reef Cruise (Platform)
Great Adventures Barrier Reef Adventure

This exciting reef cruise will take you to a spacious activity platform moored at a magnificent site on the outer edge of the Great Barrier Reef. It’s a day suited for all ages and swimmers and non-swimmers can enjoy a wide range of activities. Snorkel and dive in pristine coral gardens and with the semi-submersible and underwater observatory, you don’t even have to get wet to discover the reef! A great range of optional activities include scuba diving, the very quirky and fun Scuba Doo underwater scooter, snorkel tours and scenic helicopter flights. There’s also the option to combine a 2 hour stopover on Green Island.
