Book this Port Douglas day cruise and sail away to the Great Barrier Reef onboard a beautiful yacht to two pristine reef locations in one day! Included in this marine adventure are guided snorkelling tours, glass bottom boat rides with marine biologists and a delicious morning and afternoon tea and tropical buffet lunch.

Set sail with Sailaway VII and cruise to the pristine and protected Mackay & Undine Coral Cays filled with incredible marine life and a maze of tropical coral reefs. You will swim and snorkel alongside a marine biologist on guided tours who will show you all the different marine life and coral gardens out on the water. Glass bottom boat rides are also included which are great for the non-swimmers in the group who can still experience the reef without having to get their toes wet. With 4.5 hours on the reef, there will be time to walk the pristine golden sands of the coral cays and swim in crystal clear waters at your leisure. As you cruise the waters of the Great Barrier Reef dine on fresh local produce for morning and afternoon tea and a tropical buffet lunch.

Fabulous day. Highly recommended for a day out on the reef.

The crew were great, very friendly, helpful and knowledgeable. And the boat wasn't crowded with people. Isaac's talk before we snorkelled added to the experience as we knew more of what we were seeing. Lunch was great, so much food. I would definitely recommend this tour.

WOW! What an incredible experience. Must do for any trip to Port Douglas.

This is a must do trip! Perfect for beginners or experienced swimmers alike. We swam with the most stunning turtles and the clams were huge!! The sand cay was also absolutely incredible! I used my drone to take awesome shots. Highly recommended when you visit Port Douglas.

The waters are generally calm, however, if you suffer from motion sickness is recommended to consult with a medical practitioner before cruising.
