2 Day/ 1 Night GBR Snorkeling and Certified Diving Tour

This is our most booked tour!! The 2 Day / 1 Night Great Barrier Reef tour for both Snorkelers and Certified Divers. Of the 150 tours we operate per year, this is 80% of all our departures.

Departing Marlin Marina, Cairns, Queensland, by 7.30am you get to spend over 24 hours at the Great Barrier Reef! That's 2 full days and 1 night aboard Rum Runner, "Sleeping on the Reef". Returns Cairns next day approximately 3.00pm

Departing Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays*, we arrive at the Outer Reefs (Thetford or Moore Reefs) for up to 4 different snorkeling and dive sites. We love these reefs the best due to their still amazing coral coverage and fish life. Visibility ranges from 10m to over 20m dependent on the weather and tides, with maximum depths from 18m to 22m.

 

For the Snorkeler...

Depth’s to the top of the reef range from less than a meter to 2 - 3m on the high tides. That’s perfect for snorkeling. This tour caters very well for swimmers and non-swimmers, those who have not dived and what to give it a go, and to all wanting to tick off the bucket list of having snorkeled and scuba-dive the Great Barrier Reef.

A Snorkel and Introductory Dive Briefing is given during the journey out and we are ready to snorkel or dive by the time we arrive at our first Site. All you need to do is grab your gear and jump into the water to see the beauty of the Great Barrier Reef.

For the Certified Diver...

This tour caters very well for those straight off their "open water" course, those who have not dived for a while, and also to divers with more experience, and to all wanting to tick off the bucket list of having scuba -dive the Great Barrier Reef. Our schedule allows for 6 certified dives including a Night Dive.

A Full Dive Briefing and refresher are given during the journey out and we are ready to dive by the time we arrive at our first Site. Divers are all in buddy pairs and can follow our Dive Leader to allow more time to relax and focus on the beauty of the Great Barrier Reef, or those with more experience can buddy dive off without a guide.

The Vessel
cairns scuba diving

We make no apologies for what Rum Runner is… a 20m Motor Sailing Schooner, built in 1984, and with a nearly indestructible fiberglass hull. The vessel will accommodate up to 16 guests in multi share twin single bunk areas, semi-private twin single bunk cabins, and a 4-share single bunk cabin. She is the equivalent of a mutli share hostel, just on water.
