Overview
You can swim, snorkel, dive and sail the World Heritage-listed Great Barrier Reef, the living masterpiece that's so big it can be seen from outer space. It stretches more than 2,000 kilometres along the Queensland coast, from the mainland towns of Port Douglas to Bundaberg. On this five day cruise you hop between the pristine, palm-fringed islands on top, then explore the rainbow-coloured coral islands and marine life below.
Day 1
Cairns
Board your Coral Expeditions vessel in the afternoon and sail out of Cairns. There's plenty of time to settle in to your 'home' for the next four nights. Enjoy Champagne on the top deck before dinner while admiring the stunning sunset. Then settle down for a good night's sleep as you cruise out to the Great Barrier Reef.
