On the search for a refreshing experience to wrap up for a loved one or friend? This Great Barrier Reef Experience is an amazing gift for those friends and family itching to spend the night out at sea. Or even better, for a family or duo that have yet to witness the iconic scope of the Great Barrier.

So what can guests expect on this trip? Your recipient will discover all the wonders and colours of the Great Barrier Reef, and the beauty of the Coral Sea at night, with the brand new 2-day Great Barrier Reef Overnight Cruise:

Depart in a slick, air-conditioned catamaran from Cairns Fleet Terminal in the early morning and arrive at the Moore Reef Pontoon (41 kilometres off the coast of Cairns) for tea and a delicious buffet lunch. Remember to fill up on food, because the day ahead includes some serious water activities and exploration.

Enjoy snorkelling, diving, and fish feeding, or step down into the glass bottom boat for semi-submersible tours. Bask in the Tropical North Queensland sunshine on the top deck and breath in that salty air. After the activities have concluded, indulge in gourmet cheese, seafood and fruit platters whilst you watch the sunset on the horizon. Drink in the tranquillity of the ocean and gaze up at the Milky Way. Listen to the pitter patter of the ocean's waves, watch the native creatures and sea birds come to life.

After experiencing a few moments of pure serenity, guests will be served a 3-course BBQ dinner before retiring to their assigned pontoons. On Day 2, wake up with the sunrise and embark on an exclusive guided snorkelling safari, and soon after, the glass bottom boat tour. Enjoy a cup of tea until the fleet departs in the late afternoon, to arrive back at the Cairns Fleet Terminal just in time for dinner.

This is a once and a life time opportunity for holidaymakers and locals to discover Australia's most prized natural possessions. Gift it today!
