Poseidon Outer Reef Cruises

It’s all about giving you time to relax and enjoy your reef experience without the crowds, and without being rushed….

Poseidon is a fast comfortable catamaran which will take you to the very edge of the Great Barrier Reef in just over one hour so you have five hours ‘out there’ to swim, snorkel, dive or simply relax, at three magnificent sites.

Their snorkelling advisor will teach you proper use of the snorkel equipment and safe snorkelling techniques. A well researched and informative talk on the biology and history of the reef is followed by a guided snorkel tour where the wonders of the coral reefs are explained and identified.

For the more adventurous, scuba diving is available for both introductory and certified divers, with an opportunity to do up to three good dives.

Comfort is of prime importance and the vessel boasts a number of great features including an air-conditioned bar/saloon area, large shaded deck areas as well as a spacious sun deck, two toilets/change rooms, and fresh water showers.
