  • 2 hours at Moore Reef Pontoon
  • 2 hours on Fitzroy Island

Discover two different kinds of reefs by traveling to Fitzroy Island and Moore Reef. Experience the ultimate adventure by combining 2 hours at Moore Reef pontoon + Fitzroy Island stop-over in a day! Moore Reef has all of our standard inclusions with time at Fitzroy Island to relax & unwind including lunch.

Moore Reef Outer Barrier Reef Pontoon

First, journey out to the Outer Barrier Reef on the comfortable, spacious, air-conditioned catamaran. Positioned at Moore Reef is the activity platform with many ways in which you can see the Reef.

Snorkel in the naturally coral-fringed lagoon while trained lifeguards keep watch. Two snorkel platforms on the pontoon with water access via stairs, providing easy entry to explore Moore Reef. An enclosed ocean pool is excellent for young kids to swim in the saltwater at wading height, while a slide down the 30-metre spiral waterslide is a great way to enter the tropical ocean.

If you prefer to stay dry, there are still plenty of options to explore. A semi-submersible tour is a great way to tour the Reef without jumping in the water, while a glass-bottom boat tour provides views from above. Onboard the pontoon, visit the underwater observatory to view the impressive natural fish tank with views of the outer reef coral and marine life. A visit to the touch tank gets you up close to marine life while learning about this unique ecosystem.

Your time on Fitzroy Island

A visit to this tropical island is undoubtedly an unforgettable experience. The lush rainforest meets sandy beaches before giving way to the marine life and coral of the Great Barrier Reef. A package is a great way to tick all of the boxes that Fitzroy Island offers.

When visiting Cairns, a trip to view the coral and marine life of the Great Barrier Reef is a must-do. Fitzroy Island is ideal for those who wish to visit the various tropics’ various ecosystems. Enjoy 2 hours on this beautiful Island.
