Upolu Cay Reef
Enjoy a Glass Bottom boat tour around the crystal clear blue shallow waters surrounding Upolu Cay Reef. Ocean Freedom is the first boat to arrive, so you can enjoy this pristine area uninterrupted! Surrounded by stunning turquoise water and many types of corals, reef fishes, stingrays, cucumbers and sea stars, this is a great introduction to the reef. You can snorkel and dive here: all necessary assistance is provided to ensure every guest can enjoy the reef.
Upolu Cay is a naturally formed coral cay situated 30 kilometers from Cairns on the Great Barrier Reef. Its protected shallow waters make it the perfect location from which to explore the reef, for both snorkelers and certified and introductory scuba divers. As it is a natural pontoon - the cay size and visibility is subject to conditions on the day but the clear shallow blue waters surrounding the cay (whether visible or not) are always there!
Outer Edge Upolu Reef
You will be amazed and impressed at the "Wonder Wall" on the Outer Edge of Upolu Reef. Rising 14m from the ocean floor, "Wonder Wall" plateaus just 0.5m – 1M under the surface ( depending on the tide ), making it an ideal snorkel and dive site. View many different types of hard and soft coral, in addition to fans, giant clams, turtles and a huge diversity and abundance of reef fish of all sizes, including nemos everywhere! Enjoy an informative adventure drift snorkel tour with our Marine Naturalist.
