    Plunge into our planet’s most spectacular marine paradise, the legendary Great Barrier Reef. Departing on July 14, 2020.

    Itinerary

    Arrive in Cairns, Australia.

    Join members of the Kubirri Warra tribe for a fascinating tour of their private estate.

    The perfect site for your first check-out dive, or to practice your snorkel skills.  

    The Ribbon Reefs are long, thin strips of reef that form the outer edges of the Great Barrier Reef and lie on the edge of the continental shelf, an average of 30 to 60 miles away from the coast.

    Beautiful Lizard Island was discovered by Captain Cook in 1770, and your morning begins with an optional hike to the highest point of the island, known as Cook’s Look, where the mariner attempted to find a path through the maze of beautiful, but deadly reefs.

    Take a short walk to view several spectacular rock art sites on Stanley Island.

    Spend two full days exploring Ribbon Reef #10, which is famous for the large number of dwarf minke whales that migrate past the reef from June to July.

    Conditions permitting, venture to remote Osprey Reef, a large submerged atoll with a shallow central lagoon.

    Disembark this morning and journey overland to the Atherton Tablelands, a fertile plateau with several stands of protected rainforest.

    Flight home.
