All day and overnight trips visit the Outer Great Barrier Reef. The outer reefs are the sections furthest from the coast.
These reefs have fewer crowds and benefit from flowing nutrients distributed by the vast Coral Sea. Here, good climate conditions and clear water bring out the best in the coral colours and the incredibly diverse marine life.
With more than 18 sites from Cairns, this tour has the most choice of outer reef locations of all the local operators. On the day trips we visit two sites per day, based on weather and visibility conditions, to ensure you have the best possible dive or snorkel experience.
In Cairns and the rest of the tropical north, the weather is warm year-round, so you can enjoy a trip to the Great Barrier Reef in any season!
As long as you’re comfortable in the water, you should be able to snorkel or even do an intro dive. Before you enter the water you will fill out a form that includes information on your level of competence in the water and any medical conditions. Depending on your response, The Supplier may require that you use a flotation device while snorkelling.
Friendly instructors will talk you through using all the equipment. If you’re unsure, feel free to contact The Supplier to discuss.
Child snorkel age is 4-14. There is no minimum age restriction for travelling on vessels when accompanied by a parent or guardian, but children must remain supervised at all times if they are not undertaking a course.
Meals on board OceanQuest are chef-prepared. As long as The Supplier is advised at the time of booking, they can cater to most dietary requests.
All vessels are catamarans, which offer greater stability and a smoother ride than monohull vessels.
If you are prone to motion sickness, it is recommended to buy natural ginger tablets, available at all local chemists. The Supplier also has some available for sale onboard.
Box jellyfish, also known as ‘stingers’, are pale blue, transparent jellyfish. They can measure up to 20 cm along each side of their cube-shaped bodies, and their tentacles can reach up to 3 metres long. Their sting can be very painful, and even fatal in some cases.
Box jellyfish live in the warmer coastal areas sheltered by the Great Barrier Reef, and are most numerous between November and May. The Supploer provides protective lycra suits during these months to protect all snorkellers and divers.
The Supplier offers complimentary accommodation transfers on dive courses and overnight trips.
