Our Cairns glass bottom boat tour allows you to have an up close and personal coral and marine life viewing experience without even entering the ocean. This makes it perfect for non-swimmers or just those who want to view the Great Barrier Reef from a different perspective.
Glide across the Great Barrier Reef in our open-air glass bottom boat and see corals and fish in every shade of the spectrum through the large glass panels.
As the reef itself is only 0.5-3 metres under the glass, the Cairns glass bottom boat tour offers a clear and close-up view of hard and soft corals, giant clams, anemones and more. Watch in awe as a variety of colourful tropical fish swim under the glass bottom boat, including yellow tail fusiliers, blue tailed garfish, butterfly fish and many more. You may even spot a green sea turtle or a white spotted reef shark!
Enjoy a full commentary from one of our marine experts as they educate you on the Great Barrier Reef and the various inhabitants that you spot during the tour.
The Great Barrier Reef glass bottom boat tour lasts 20 minutes and departs regularly throughout the duration of your time at the reef Marine Base.
