Great Barrier Reef Day Tour from the Gold Coast
  • Lady Elliott Island
  • Snorkel on the Great Barrier Reef
  • Scenic flight along the coastline
  • Glass bottom boat tour
  • View Manta Rays
  • Buffet lunch including seafood

The wonders of the Great Barrier Reef are reachable in a single day with this gift voucher for a day tour package that will whisk you away from the Gold Coast's Coolangatta Airport via return scenic air flight that will ensure you get the most amazing views possible along the way! Once arriving at the reef on a beautiful island you'll have five hours to explore the island and the reef itself, starting off with an orientation tour to get you situated and then a guided reef walk tour at low tide. Get ready for a day of aquatic exploration by taking a snorkelling lesson in the resort's pool (if necessary), then head out into the reef and snorkel for real, witnessing firsthand the bevy of marine life that make up this Wonder of the Natural World.

Take the opportunity to experience a glass bottom boat tour that will allow you to gaze directly down into the crystal clear waters below, then recharge your batteries with a delicious buffet lunch consisting of a hot and cold buffet of fresh prawns, champagne, wine, beer and soft drink. Take part in the fish feeding activities in the lagoon fish pool, and much more! Full use of all snorkelling equipment, return hotel accommodation pickups, and use of the resort's day guest facilities are all included in the price of the gift voucher, making this Great Barrier Reef day tour from the Gold Coast one of the most solidly satisfying experiences around!

Very Friendly Staff. There was a lot of marine life. Hard coral, but a well taken care of "green zone." Rays, whales (seasonal), turtles, dolphin sightings. Remote and nice views flying into the area.
