Passions of Paradise

Cairns, Cairns Area

Get up close to a giant maori wrasse, follow a turtle over colourful coral gardens or swim with a reef shark when you dive, snorkel and sail the Great Barrier Reef from Cairns with Passions of Paradise.

The locally owned company has more than 25 years' experience in operating personalised day tours to the Great Barrier Reef. A commitment to research, education and conservation of the World Heritage area has earned Passions many environmental awards.

Your reef adventure begins with an informative briefing by an eco-guide before exploring two pristine Great Barrier Reef locations at moorings owned exclusively by Passions of Paradise.

A choice of private outer Great Barrier Reef sites means Passions can select the location best suited to the weather, and with just 80 passengers on the air-conditioned 25-metre catamaran you will avoid the crowds as you snorkel or dive.

The trip includes snorkelling equipment, a hot and cold buffet lunch freshly prepared by the onboard chef plus friendly trained staff to teach snorkelling techniques and educate you about the Great Barrier Reef.

Optional activities include introductory or certified diving and a guided glass bottom boat tour.
