Reef Day Tour:
Skyrail/Kuranda Train Tour:
Evolution is a state of the art, purpose-built, high-speed 35-metre superyacht, with a cruising speed of 30 knots, providing a comfortable, safe and luxury reef cruise from Cairns. You will spend five hours visiting two spectacular Outer Great Barrier Reef Destinations (Norman OR Saxon and Hastings Reef).
After cruising for 80 minutes, we reach the first reef location to being your reef adventure snorkelling the Great Barrier Reef! Explore the magical underwater world, spotting an abundance of colourful fish, coral and marine life. If you are interested in diving, you can add up to 3 introductory or certified scuba dives at checkout.
With all that snorkelling, you will have worked up an appetite. While you were in the water, the crew were busy preparing a delicious BBQ lunch including fresh fish, prawns, steak, vegetarian options and a variety of salads.
After lunch, it is time to snorkel the second location on the reef tour, Hastings Reef. Keen to stay dry? No problem! You can laze around on one of our three sun-decks for the afternoon. Then, it's time to cruise back to Cairns with a glass of complimentary wine and a snack to cheers to a great day on the Great Barrier Reef with Evolution.
Kuranda Scenic Railway is the original scenic rail journey to Kuranda. This spectacular experience travels over bridges and through tunnels hand-made by North Queensland’s pioneers over 100 years ago. Traversing the World Heritage-listed rainforest of the Barron Gorge National Park this is one of the world’s great railway journeys. After free time in Kuranda, skim the Rainforest as you return via Skyrail Cableway. Now includes the opportunity to experience THE EDGE LOOKOUT overlooking famous Barron Falls!
