RatPack Intro:

No visit to Cairns is complete without taking a trip out onto one of the seven wonders of the world, the Great Barrier Reef. This package allows you to see the reef from two different perspectives, in the sky in a state of the art helicopter and whilst scuba diving or snorkelling!

These guys from Down Under Cruise & Dive have a brand new boat; Evolution, which is one of the fastest Great Barrier Reef day trips designed to get you to the reef quickly to ensure you have maximum snorkelling or diving time! This boat takes you to two outer reef locations, Saxon reef (or norman reef) and hastings reef, where you’ll get around 5 hours of snorkelling time. These spots are expertly selected to ensure you visit the best spots where you’ll find an array of incredible marine life & coral, you won’t be fighting with the crowds in these protected spots. When you arrive at the second reef location you’ll experience a 10 minute unforgettable helicopter tour of the reef, what better way to see the true size of the reef than in the sky!

Snorkeller? Diver? Straight out newbie? No problem! This boat is perfect for all of any ability, for newbies to snorkelling, the legendary guides will give you an intro to snorkelling and will even take you out on a guided snorkelling tour of the reef to get you started! If you have never scuba dived before and fancy trying it out for the first time then pre book an Intro Dive - they will provide all the equipment and tuition - an intro dive will give you 20 - 30mins to discover the reef & you'll go to a maximum depth of 10 metres! You do not need any prior experience! Certified divers can buddy up with a friend or join the guides as they push the limits and explore the amazing views of the reef. Under the surface in this incredible underwater world you’ll have the opportunity to see turtles, reef sharks (don’t worry - they won’t bite!), nemos and many tropical colourful fish, take your GoPro with you or keep an eye out for the boats photographer to capture those magical moments. {RatPack Tip: be one of the first into the water to see turtles!} If you are intrigued by the marine life and want to know more, the knowledgeable onboard marine biologist can take you on an eco tour of the reef to educate you on what you are seeing.

All this mermaid fun and excitement is hungry work and between reefs you’ll be treated to an amazing hot bbq lunch with salads served up by the friendly down under crew! These guys don’t just snorkel and provide banter throughout the day, they are also born entertainers and will perform a selection of songs for you as you cruise back to Cairns and enjoy some complimentary cheese & wine, we can think of worse ways to spend a day!

We love this trip because it has a chilled vibe, the options of seeing the reef by air or sea and you get the maximum amount of time out on the reef with lots of space to relax in the air conditioned lounges or up on the deck. The friendly crew will ensure you get the most of your day and enjoy the true beauty of the Great Barrier Reef!
