Discover the glory of Great Barrier Reef with Sunlover Reef Cruises. Enjoy a memorable day trip to the awe inspiring Moore Reef pontoon launched in May 2017, and featuring sundeck lounge and theme-park water slide - the only one on the Outer Barrier Reef. Alternatively, cruise out to our Arlington Reef pontoon on the ONLY half-day Outer Barrier Reef Tour in Cairns. Our fast, modern, air-conditioned catamarans depart Cairns daily and take you to our spacious outer reef activity platforms. Enjoy over 4 hours at the reef and an impressive array of complimentary inclusions including glass bottom boat and semi-submersible reef viewing tours.
