Come face to face with schools of tropical reef fish and be amazed at the spectacular coral formations.

Compass Cruises offer Glass bottom boat tours with Marine naturalist reef interpretation, snorkelling, scuba diving, swimming or simply relax on the sundeck. Enjoy a delicious tropical buffet lunch as you cruise from Hastings Reef to Breaking Patches and boom netting just for fun.

Explore The Outback

Australia has a vast remote interior, much of it largely untouched. By night, the outback is deathly quiet, with the only light provided by the stars and the moon - a perfect oportunity for stargazing. Explore the isolated heart of the country, meet and connect with Aboriginal people and experience one of the oldest living cultures in the world. Go ‘walk-about’ and immerse yourself with Australia’s endless outback horizons.
