Marine World Platform

Reef Magic Cruises operate day trips direct from Cairns to the Marine World activity pontoon located on the outer Great Barrier Reef.

The all-weather Marine World platform caters for all activity levels. Snorkel in the sheltered coral lagoon, join our Marine Biologist on a Guided Snorkel Safari, try Scuba Diving or even Sea Trek Helmet Diving.

If simply relaxing & soaking up the tropical warmth is more your style then take time out on our spacious sundeck.  Best of all when traveling with Reef Magic Cruises you benefit from the expert local knowledge of a Australian owned, Cairns based crew who bring the friendly inclusive atmosphere for which we are renowned for.
