Day 1

Board Coral Sea Dreaming at 0745 for morning tea and greet the crew.
Set sail to Cairns outermost reefs. Along the way we conduct introductory and certified dive briefings and a marine naturalist brief. Arrive at our first Outer Reef location. For the snorkeler, you’ll experience extensive coral gardens with an unbelievable amount of marine life. Expect to encounter turtles, small reef sharks and schools of pelagic fish. Our in-water activities are followed by lunch and afternoon tea. In the afternoon, the boat moves to its second location. An afternoon dive or snorkel opportunity is followed by preparations for nightfall. Passengers undertaking a night dive are briefed and the diving begins. Dinner is served once activities are completed. After dinner, passengers enjoy tea and coffee, a BYO (bring-your-own alcoholic) drink and tall tales.


Day 2

Awake to the dawn and watch the sun rise over the Coral Sea. Throw yourself into the warm tropical water and wake yourself up! This is the perfect time to snorkel or scuba dive as early morning is a fantastic time to see reef sharks, turtles and cruising pelagic fish. Breakfast is served. Boat departs to its next location. Morning tea is served. After mid-morning, depending on weather, the boat will move to another site or reef If you are “activitied-out”, this is also an excellent time to catch up on some serious sun tanning or relax, read a book and take in the stunning views. Lunch is served before departure .Upon leaving our anchorage we hoist the sails. It is very common to have dolphins surf the bow wave and during the winter months, see humpback whales. The emphasis on the journey home is to relax and enjoy the company of new found friends. Finally, as we leave behind the wonders of the reef, passengers are treated to a spectacular view as we approach one of Australia’s most scenic harbours – mountains on the left and right rising high above a beautiful tropical city skyline.
