Several snorkelling day tours are available, from large reef pontoons to small personable terms.

At Snorkel trips, we have chosen the best tours to ensure that you get the best reef experience.

Snorkel day tours are a great way to explore the amazing Great Barrier Reef. Make sure you head to the outer barrier reef.

Spend a day exploring the reef, diversity of marine life and extensive coral gardens.

Snorkel trips for the day are an exciting way to see the reef as you don’t have to take any scuba diving courses to find adventure.

Start your day early to make the most of your time at the outer barrier reef.

Anyone who can swim can snorkel. Also, some trips specialise in helping people who cannot swim, like Reef Experience.  This tour departs daily from Cairns.

All of the equipment is included in the snorkelling tours, making it easy and convenient for your snorkelling vacation.

While you are on the Great Barrier Reef, you will see brightly coloured reef fish and coral.

Snorkelling tours are perfect for any getaway to explore the reef.


The vibrant coral gardens remain plentiful on the Outer Barrier Reef. Next, swim with thousands of brightly coloured fish, coral, and turtles. Even the shallow lagoons offer something exciting.  While exploring the coral gardens, watch for lagoon rays and parrotfish.

As you’ll remain closer to the water’s surface, everything you see will be more vibrant and colourful. You won’t miss out on a thing.

Snorkel day tours are perfect for a relaxing getaway, nature lovers and a bit of adventure.

With many snorkel trips available, you’ll find the perfect package for you.

Non-swimmers or not confident swimmers

If you are uncomfortable in the water and cannot swim, some reef tours have a crew to help you have the best experience.
