Swimming, snorkeling, glass boat tours and scuba diving are just a few things that’ll keep the kids busy learning and having fun!
On board Reef Experience
With cool, spacious indoor areas and a huge sundeck complete with padded lounge chairs and a view to die for, you can relax and enjoy the journey in comfort.
Snorkel and scuba diving platforms are at water level and provide easy access when you want to go for a swim.
Food options are family friendly so there’s always something for children to munch, and fruit is served morning and afternoon.
Breakfast, lunch, and return journey cheese and biscuits are included while snacks (chocolates, chips and soft drinks) are available for purchase at the bar.
Parents can enjoy a well earned complimentary glass of wine on the way home while children are served fruit punch.
Family Day Snorkeling
Snorkeling is an easy activity for all the family to enjoy. Reef Experience visits shallow snorkelling lagoon areas bursting with colourful tropical fish, turtles and coral.
Children’s life vests and snorkeling noodles are available and there are always friendly, experienced crew members ready to give in-water assistance, allowing parents the chance to explore.
Marine Biology Talk & Tour
The Marine Biology talk on the journey to the Great Barrier Reef keeps the kids entertained and teaches them about the amazing marine life they’ll see at the Great Barrier Reef.
The Marine Biology Snorkel Tour is an optional extra and a great chance for an educational and interactive guided snorkel around the reef.
Send the kids off or come along too – our experienced Marine Biologist will show and tell about the reef, turtles and other aquatic life that live in the Great Barrier Reef habitat.
Kids can get up close and personal with sea cumbers, find hidden sea stars and watch a giant clam shell close it’s jaws – it’s so much fun they’ll want to do our family day tour again and again!
Glass Bottom Boat Ride
The young and the elderly alike all love a good glass bottom boat tour! Stay dry and take a commentated glass boat tour with Captain Hack, or be the family photographer and watch everyone else play in the water from the viewing bench on the sun deck.
Try Scuba Lessons
Older kids and adults can try scuba diving for the first time in a shallow, safe and easy environment with one of our highly qualified scuba diving Instructors.
Fly weightlessly around the reef like superman on a guided resort scuba dive and meet the marine life you see on their level.
Scuba diving is a sport to fall in love with, and kids confidence in the water can grow after just one closely supervised first scuba diving lesson.
*Scuba diving is subject to age and medical restrictions. See ‘Important Information‘. Minimum age 12 years.
Family day trip on Reef Experience is one your whole family will remember for a long time.
