Our 4-night Cairns – Lizard Island – Cairns cruise is the perfect option for those guests wanting to spend the maximum amount of time exploring the colourful coral gardens of the World Heritage-listed Great Barrier Reef. Enjoy a full day to discover two different sections of the rarely visited Ribbon Reefs, considered to be the most colourful and pristine reefs found anywhere along the entire length of the Great Barrier Reef, as well as the wonderful fringing reefs off Lizard Island and Two Isles. You will also have the opportunity to explore historic Cooktown and savour a full morning discovering spectacular Lizard Island.

 
For guests wanting to spend as much time as possible discovering the reefs of the Tropical North, whilst still enjoying time ashore, this itinerary offers you plenty of time to come face to face with the very best parts of the Great Barrier Reef.
 
We get a lot of queries about conserving the reef. That’s why we’ve enlisted the help of our resident Marine Biologists to help answer some of your questions. 
 
Expedition highlights:
 
• The complete Great Barrier Reef experience. Snorkel over colourful coral gardens, stroll golden sandy beaches and wander rainforest trails
• Secluded gourmet beach BBQ
• Experience the World Heritage-listed reef from our private moorings away from the tourist crowds
• Be guided by an expert Marine Biologist on glass bottom boat and snorkelling tours
• Informative presentations and educational documentaries
• History and cultures of the region and early explorers
• Join an optional resort or certified SCUBA dive on the outer reef
