Compare Great Barrier Reef Tours

There is a lot of data in our Compare Great Barrier Reef Tours sheets; we suggest you focus on what is important to you. Think about what is most significant for you to enjoy your experience, such as the following considerations:

If you want to spend a lot of time snorkelling on the Great Barrier Reef, view our Great Barrier Reef tours with snorkelling equipment/ guided snorkels/ snorkelling tuition.

If you are a non-swimmer, view our Great Barrier Reef tours that offer a semi-submersible or glass bottom boat to see experience the Great Barrier Reef.

If you want to learn about the Great Barrier Reef view tours that offer Great Barrier Reef Marine biologist talks.

If you want to be near facilities at all times while on the Great Barrier Reef view Green Island or Great Barrier Reef Outer Reef tours (i.e. with pontoons with Toilets/ showers/ shops).

If you have very young children (ie babies/toddlers) view Great Barrier Reef tours to Islands – Green Island or Low Isles.

Other points to consider when comparing Great Barrier Reef Tours:

1. Outer Reef Day Tours generally involve a full day on the Great Barrier Reef with the day spent on a Reef Boat and a Pontoon.

2. Reef & Island Day tours offer a range of combinations – Some time at a Great Barrier Reef pontoon/some time at a Great Barrier Reef Island
or Island only (see the reef from off the beach/shallow snorkelling) or Sand Cay (lots of sand/bird-life/snorkel off boat).

Wow how do I get a garden that looks like kuranda. Trevor our guide really knew his stuff - I could have taken him home as a souvenir.
