Here’s why you will love exploring the Great Barrier Reef on the Explore Full Day Snorkelling & Diving Tour

Experience a full day plunging into the cool waters of the Coral Sea to immerse yourself in the abundance of marine life in this beautiful part of the world.

Your experienced and knowledgeable crew will take you to selected moorings around Bait Reef- the closest of the outer reef locations. This is to ensure you have the most time possible to spend underwater rather than travelling to the location, although you will be doing this in style! Island Explorer is a custom designed dive/snorkel vessel with two levels of air-conditioned lounge style seating, a partially shaded deck, and fresh water shower. She also boasts a full beam swim platform to make entering and exiting the water in your provided dive equipment a comfortable experience.

Key features include:

  • Small Groups
  • PADI 5-star accredited operators
  • Educations Great Barrier Reef and Whitsunday Island commentary
  • Minimum 3.5 hours on location
  • Buffet style lunch, morning and afternoon tea


Explore - Full Day Snorkelling & Diving the Outer Reef Tour Plan

Your full day tour will depart at 9:00am and return at 5:00pm to the Abell Point Marina. Your tour will visit two locations within the Bait Reef area. Spend a minimum of 3.5 hours at each location such as great snorkelling and dive sites Stepping Stones, Paradise Lagoon and Mantaray drop-off.

Please note at times the weather can be unpredictable. You will be provided an up to date weather report including wind and visibility before your departure along with your itinerary for the day.

This cruise is not suitable for those that cannot swim.

Please Note: This is a sample tour plan; your itinerary is based on the weather and tidal conditions experienced at the time of travel.


Thank you!
