By car

If you are planning on driving, please allow adequate time to park and walk to the terminal.

By uber or taxi

Book your drop off for Reef Fleet Terminal, 1 Spence Street – and just to be safe, tell the driver you need to get to the Great Barrier Reef from Cairns Marina.

By walking

The Reef Fleet Terminal is located at the top of Spence Street next to the marina. Look for a large two-story building with a café at the entrance. Reef Fleet is opposite the Pier shopping centre and Shangri La Hotel, at the southern end of the Cairns Esplanade and Lagoon.
