Complimentary water activities include a glass-bottom boat and adventure snorkel tours with optional diving also available.

Ocean Freedom is the only boat in Cairns offering a full 6 hours on the reef. This gives you time to be truly immersed in all that is reef and still have time for a leisurely lunch.
