DescriptionAs soon as you step foot on a super-fast, luxury 20m CAT, you’ll feel welcomed and pampered. With your early boarding from Marlin Marina (with prior check in at 7:15am from Reef Fleet Terminal, Cairns Marina), you’ll get to breathe in the morning ocean breeze as you’re taken out to one of two snorkel and dive destinations. At the stunning Upolu Coral Cay Reef, you’ll learn about graceful blue-spotted stingrays, tenacious green sea turtles, bright damsel fish and other amazing creatures that call this reef their home, as you observe them from a glass bottom boat. You’ll then have the chance to see these inquisitive creatures up close, while snorkeling within the incredibly clear, turquoise water. The second snorkel and dive site is the fascinating ‘Wonder Wall’, located on the outer edge of Upolu Reef. Here you will enjoy snorkelling on the top of the wall for easy viewing of all the marine life and coral. Maybe sign-up for the optional, certified or introductory guided dive, encountering a huge variety of aquatic flora and fauna, including hard and soft corals, giant clams, fans, turtles and a vast assortment of colorful tropical fish as you descend and meander along the side of the wall . In between visiting these two sites, you’ll enjoy a smorgasbord lunch fit for a king. Enjoy smoked salmon, prawns, three types of cold meat, a chicken platter, three fresh salads and a variety of breads. After a relaxed six hours of diving and snorkelling, you’ll spend the trip home indulging in even more delicious food, arriving back at Cairns at around 4:30 pm.
