Overview
Take a sailing trip off the beaten path and travel to some of the best remote reef sites around Cairns. This small-group, 2-night sailing trip is limited to 12 people and offers both certified and introductory diving, as well as certification courses, so that even beginner divers can experience the wonders of the Great Barrier Reef such as schools of iridescent fish, turtles, and colorful corals. Choose from private or shared accommodation on board.
What to Expect
Departing from Cairns Marlin Marina at 8 am, watch the coastline become a far away horizon as you sail off into paradise. Enjoy on board morning tea and the tropical Queensland sun as you cruise towards the first reef site. Before you know it, it is time to get suited up and ready for your first introductory/certified dive or snorkel on the Great Barrier Reef. Our highly skilled instructors will take you below the surface to experience schools of iridescent fish feeding, a lazing turtle snacking on sea grass, myriad of colorful corals and so much more. No two dives are ever the same! As the sun descends for the day, laze on deck and get ready for an exciting night dive experience. We are the proud owners of one of the only 'introductory' night diving licences in Australia so if this is a life time dream and you are not certified. No worries! Coral Sea Dreaming can take you below to witness schools of feeding pelagic's, Parrot fish resting in their sleep bubbles and many more shenanigans of the local sea life that is the Great Barrier Reef. After a full days activities, relax on deck with a cold beverage from the on board bar and tuck into a delicious filling dinner.

As the sun arises for day 2, enjoy your early morning breakfast before diving back into the water to complete another days diving and snorkeling. Visiting a selection of pristine reef locations, enjoy your last few hours on the reef before hoisting the sails to commence the journey back to port, arriving back in Cairns Marlin Marina between 4 and 4.30pm.

We had a nice group of 12 people + 4 crew. Pleasant and professional crew, good food. Snorkling is the standard, diving is optional (1, 2 or 3 dives of 20 minutes), also for starters and for a very attractive price (150 $ only for...More
