Snorkeling Tours

The Cairns Travel Guide offers more than a dozen snorkeling tours that depart Cairns each day for the Inner or Outer Great Barrier Reef.

Dive Tours

For beginners and experienced divers, choose a single- or multi-day dive trip and see the amazing world of the Outer Reef.

Green Island

One of the most popular destinations on the Great Barrier Reef, Green Island is great for families with kids, and there’s great snorkeling on the fringing reefs around the island.

Fitzroy Island

A forested and mountainous tropical island set in the clear turquoise waters of the Great Barrier Reef. Plenty to do: snorkeling, paddle-boarding, kayaking, sea trampoline.


Ride up to Kuranda on the Scenic Railway and spend a few hours exploring the Village in the Rainforest. Then come down on the Skyrail cable-car, gliding silently just metres above the rainforest canopy.

Atherton Tablelands

Visit the picturesque waterfalls and volcanic lakes. Or go on the food trail, visiting the plantations, orchards, and dairy farms of the Tablelands. Taste coffee, tea, chocolate, mango wines, macadamia nuts, peanuts, cashews, pecans, cheeses and more!

Half-Day Tours

Go horse-riding at a Billabong, take a 4WD Buggy Ride through rainforest, or see monster saltwater crocodiles. These are just some of the Half-Day Tours we have on offer.

Adventure Tours

The Cairns Travel Guide also offers a complete range of Adventure Tours, including hot air ballooning, white-water rafting, skydiving, bungy jumping, paragliding, and parasailing.

Fishing Tours

The Cairns Travel Guide will help you choose the fishing tour that is right for you: Reef Fishing for Fingermark, Coral Trout, Red Emperor, Nannygai or Estuary Fishing and River Fishing for Queen Fish, Trevally, and Mangrove Jack.

Heli Tours

Take a helicopter flight over the Great Barrier Reef and see the only living organism that is visible from space. Fly out to a reef pontoon and come back on a tour boat, or the other way around. This gives you more time to snorkel on the reef!

Sailing Tours

Relax and enjoy a leisurely day sailing out to a sandy cay. A great way to go snorkeling on the Great Barrier Reef. It’s also a good option if you want to avoid the crowds.

Budget Reef Tours

With the Cairns Travel Guide you don’t have to spend $200+ per person to go snorkeling on the Reef. For as little as $78 p/adult (return) you can catch the ferry to Fitzroy Island. On Fitzroy you can hire snorkeling gear, kayaks, paddleboards, and sea trampoline.
