Cruising the Great Barrier Reef

The Great Barrier Reef found just off the Australian coast in Queensland is one of the world's most magnificent aquatic sites. The barrier reef has over 2,000 coral reefs and is the largest of its kind in the world. The site is especially popular with fishermen and divers, and small cruise vessels take visitors in and around the reef area with stops in the Cairns region. Live aboard yachts offer specialized cruises for fishermen and divers that often include equipment rentals and instructional guided tours. These trips offer small groups luxury accommodation, meals, and unlimited recreational activities. Less luxe day trips may also be taken by ferries and other small boats departing from the mainland.
