Explore the Great Barrier Reef

The Hayman near the Great Barrier Reef
More then 1,600 miles off the eastern Australian coast is where you will find one of Australia's most amazing landmarks, the Great Barrier Reef. Although the reef is a favorite destination for scuba diving enthusiasts, it can also be seen a few other ways.  So those that desire to take in the beauty of the reef without heading underwater, check out these other Great Barrier Reef adventures.

Our first options is to plan a trip out to an Outer Reef Pontoon for a day of fun in the sun.  A catamaran delivers you to the permanently anchored platforms where you can enjoy both wet and dry activities and even a lunch buffet is included.  The next option is to stay on one of the Great Barrier Reef Islands just off the coast of Cairns.  Here you can enjoy the reef from the water with snorkeling, scuba diving or kayaking or head inland for hiking or a delightful picnic on the beach.  The next excursion involves going underwater, but in a very non-traditional way.  Helmet diving or Scuba-Doo rides are offered by a few of the outer reef adventure companies.  Helmet diving allows you to go under without getting your face and hair wet while Scuba-Doo is an exciting and very unique underwater scooter.  Both options are thrilling and guarantee that you will have a ton of fun.  If you want to check out the reef from up high, try out the Sea Plane or Helicopter tours.  Here you get the view from above that is unlike anything you have ever seen before.  Our last over the top option is a cruise in a semi submerged boat or a glass-bottom boat.  No need to get wet on this tour, but you can still see fish and colorful coral below.  Some tour companies even offer nighttime reef viewing for a unique perspective of what happens underwater when the sun goes down.  So if you are dying to go check out Australia's gorgeous reef, know that there are a plethora of options to ensure remarkable and fun-filled excursions.
