Australia : Great Barrier Reef Cruise

Departures: Year round Duration: 4 nights Price: from £1,377

Explore the reef, ancient rainforests and secluded tropical islands most visitors never see. On this relaxing cruise you'll enjoy the very best of the Great Barrier Reef in total comfort and unmatched style.



Spend 4 nights cruising the Great Barrier Reef, from Cairns north to Lizard Island via the spectacular Ribbon Reefs and historic Cooktown, before returning to Cairns.

Explore remote coral cays, deserted but for a myriad of colorful tropical fish, peaceful tropical islands and primordial rainforests well beyond the reach of most visitors. Exclusive reef moorings mean you won’t be surrounded by hundreds of other reef visitors – and our small ships accommodate a maximum of just 50 guests, ensuring an intimate and personalised experience.

The informative crew is always on hand to provide assistance and information about the fascinating Reef life and habitats. You will be accompanied by a Marine Biologist, who will explain the many wonders of the reef as you make use of the ship’s glass-bottomed boat. Should you prefer a closer view you can snorkel your way amongst giant clams, colourful corals and multi-hued fish in clear tropical waters. An experienced Dive Instructor can take you for an exhilarating introductory SCUBA dive, revealing even more of this breathtaking World Heritage-listed wonderland.

Or you can choose to simply relax on the sun deck or in the open-bridge or spa as we cruise serenely through some of the most awe-inspiring scenery Australia has to offer.
