Each Great Barrier Reef cruise departure features contemporary modern-Australian cuisine, using fresh tropical produce and exquisite local seafood.  A choice of full or continental breakfast each day, followed by a sumptuous buffet lunch and 3-course table d’ hote dinner menu. 

The cruise ships sun deck provides the perfect venue for dining under the stars!  At the end of each day of exploration enjoy the lounges and bars for a tropical cocktail or quiet read or DVD from the library.

The all Australian & New Zealand crew will share their extensive local knowledge during your cruise and will attend to your every need.  There is a qualified and experienced Marine Biologist travelling on board who will provide memorable island tours and expeditions, lectures and provide insight into the up close and personal ‘fish feeding’ sessions from the snorkel platform.

Covering an area of over 2600 km and encompassing over 900 islands, the Great Barrier Reef is the worlds largest living structure and home to an abundant and thriving array of marine and birdlife species. It holds pride of place as one of the 7 natural worlds wonders of the world and is listed as a UNESCO World Heritage area. 

We pioneered extended expedition cruises on the outer reaches of the Great Barrier Reef over 35 years ago and have forged a reputation for excellence and expertise in that time.

Scuba divers and snorkelers will not be disappointed as the highlight of any Great Barrier Reef holiday is the opportunity to discover the world underwater.  Our luxury Cairns cruise ship tours will take you to stunning fringing reefs off Lizard Island and Pelorus Islands and the remote Ribbon Reef on the northern end of the outer edges of the coral reef. 

Here you can explore the coral gardens and thousands of brightly coloured tropical fish.
