Getting Moore out of the Reef

Travel by fast, air-conditioned catamaran from Cairns Marina to our Moore Reef Marine Base on the outer Great Barrier Reef, which is perfectly positioned and equipped for you to explore one of the natural wonders of the world.


The 50 metre long Marine Base was recently refurbished and enhanced and now features a large upper-level sundeck to relax in the tropical sunshine and is in a prime position to look out over the turquoise waters and mosiac patterns of the reef. The sundeck is also where the Sunlover Sunslide starts on its 30 metre spiral descent into the tropical waters.  Designed for all ages and abilities to fully experience the brilliantly coloured corals and more than 10,000 marine species that inhabit the reef, you will enjoy more activities and more value. 

Spend 4 HOURS discovering the beauty and diversity of the Great Barrier Reef by taking advantage of the free inclusions such as glass bottom boat and semi-submersible tours, an ocean enclosed pool for the kids, tropical buffet lunch with prawns, all snorkelling equipment, an underwater observatory, marine life touch tank and fish feeding experience.

For a more in-depth experience try one of our optional extras including Introductory or Certified SCUBA dives, Seawalker Platform Helmet experience, a Guided Snorkel Safari, scenic helicopter flight, or even stay overnight with Sunlover by Starlight. Underwater photographers are on hand to take photos you are sure to treasure, and our resident Maori Wrasse "Wally" is always happy to pose for some snaps.

Our marine experts deliver a free Great Barrier Reef presentation en-route to the reef and are on hand throughout the day to answer your questions. Keep an eye out for our Master Reef Guides, who have been selected and trained by the Great Barrier Reef Marine Park Authority and are recognised as the world’s leading reef guides. Snorkelling is safe in a lifeguard controlled environment and all of our friendly crew will ensure you depart the reef with a smile on your face, having experienced one of the natural wonders of the world.
