Fitzroy Island Cairns and Moore Reef 2-Day Package

Fitzroy Island Cairns and Moore Reef are two fantastic destinations in one tour.  First, explore the idyllic Fitzroy Island and snorkel the coral gardens straight off the beach.  The following day, embark on a full-day trip to the Outer Barrier Reef and visit Moore Reef Pontoon.  Snorkel over extensive platform reefs and witness the marvellous marine life.

Fitzroy Island Cairns Day tour

A visit to this tropical island is undoubtedly an unforgettable experience.  The lush rainforest meets sandy beaches before giving way to the marine life and coral of the Great Barrier Reef.  A package is a great way to tick all Fitzroy Island’s boxes.

When visiting Cairns, a trip to view the coral and marine life of the Great Barrier Reef is a must-do.  Fitzroy Island Cairns is ideal for those wishing to visit the various tropical ecosystems.  This package includes return transfers, snorkelling equipment, and free time to explore Fitzroy Island’s National Park walking trails.

The Fitzroy Island Cairns day package is the perfect way to explore the Reef while visiting the island.  Snorkel straight from the beach to view the coral and various fish below.  Snorkelers also report swimming alongside the beautiful Green Sea Turtle.  In addition to the water-based activities, your day includes time to explore the dense rainforest, which covers 99% of the island.

This package also includes transfers to Fitzroy Island in an air-conditioned catamaran, taking around 45 minutes.  The full-day trip provides approximately 6 hours to explore, including your snorkelling.

Moore Reef Outer Barrier Reef Pontoon

Journey to the Outer Barrier Reef on the comfortable, spacious, air-conditioned catamaran.  Positioned at Moore Reef is the activity platform with many ways to see the Reef.

Moore Reef is within the Great Barrier Reef Marine Park.

Snorkel in the naturally coral-fringed lagoon while trained lifeguards keep watch.  Two snorkel platforms on the pontoon with water access via stairs, providing easy entry to explore Moore Reef.  An enclosed ocean pool is excellent for young kids to swim in the saltwater at wading height, while a slide down the 30-metre spiral waterslide is a great way to enter the tropical ocean.

If you prefer to stay dry, there are still plenty of options to explore.  A semi-submersible tour is a great way to tour the Reef without jumping in the water, while a glass-bottom boat tour provides views from above.  Onboard the pontoon, visit the underwater observatory to view the impressive natural fish tank with views of the outer Reef coral and marine life.  A visit to the touch tank gets you up close to marine life while learning about this unique ecosystem.

There is no better way to see multiple types of Reefs on your visit to the Great Barrier Reef!

Your Safety Is Our First Priority

Some medical conditions, age and/or medications may prevent you from scuba diving. For this reason, we strongly recommend that you complete our Scuba Diving Questionnaire prior to booking. After all, we want you to be able to enjoy every aspect of your adventure.
