Great Barrier Reef Overnight departing Cairns

Enjoy the wonders of the Great Barrier Reef on a liveaboard vessel. When just one day at the reef isn’t enough, an overnight trip from Cairns gives you all the time you need. Visit colourful dive and snorkel sites during the day.  Then at night relax in the air conditioned cabins with en suites, or lounge and bar areas, all designed for your comfort. Sleep on the reef and enjoy more time to explore this natural wonder…

per person

Wake up and watch the sunrise over the Great Barrier Reef!  These overnight liveaboard trips are designed for people who would like just a little more time out on the reef and especially for more experienced or keen divers.  With night dives also available you will see the reef in all its glory.

Overnight trips are also a great way to get your dive qualifications, a little bit of study in the classroom and the pool before heading out to learn the ropes!
