2 Day Port Douglas Great Barrier Reef and Tropical Experience 

Explore the oldest living rainforest in the world and the Great Barrier Reef – two fantastic world heritage listed locations.

The first day will have you cruising to the Great Barrier Reef, departing from Port Douglas (Cairns transfers available at extra cost) visiting three sites on the very edge of the outer reef, allowing plenty of time to snorkel and (certified only) scuba dive.

This is your chance to experience a different world underwater, coming face to face with all types of marine life, and seeing a array of colourful coral.

The second day will take you up to the Daintree, where you will spend the day exploring different facets of this diverse tropical rainforest.

Spot crocodiles and other wildlife while floating down the Daintree river, take a guided boardwalk through the trees while learning about the ecosystem, have lunch in a picturesque private setting and much more.
