Join us for a unique outer reef tour where the Sunlover catamaran docks alongside a floating pontoon stationed in a natural lagoon fringed with beautiful coral. Our marine biologists, dive instructors, qualified lifeguards and cruise attendants have only one goal: to share their passion for the Great Barrier Reef and ensure you make memories that will last a lifetime.
With a range of included activities and exclusive use of our custom-designed floating pontoon, all ages and abilities can explore and enjoy the wonders of the Great Barrier Reef. With clear water, colourful coral, abundant fish life and friendly resident turtles and Maori wrasse, Moore Reef is the ultimate destination to experience all that the outer reef has to offer.
Swimmers of all abilities can snorkel in the natural lagoon or stay dry with our semi-submersible and glass bottom boat tours. You can also visit our underwater observatory to discover the world’s most impressive natural fish tank and get up close and personal with marine life in our touch tank presentations. Young kids can have fun in our enclosed ocean pool or swirl down Sunlover’s 30-metre spiralling waterslide into the tropical ocean. A trained lifeguard is always on watch from an elevated lifeguard station, and there’s easy entry to the water from two snorkel platforms, both of which are accessible by stairs.
For those who want even more adventure, you can add to your reef tour with a guided-snorkel tour, Seawalker helmet dive, introductory and certified SCUBA dives or take to the sky for a scenic helicopter flight.

What our guests say
We had such an amazing experience, 10 out of 10, I wish I could give extra rating stars! The crew are super friendly, buffet was great, semi submersible tour is very cool! Highlight of the day was the guided snorkel tour, very knowledgeable guide, my wife doesn't swim at all and had a fantastic time! There's also an underwater photographer onboard who takes great photos!
Beautiful coral reef. I did guided snorkeling tour, Ted was a very hard working guide, we went outside the roped area and it was so beautiful. We felt very safe with him and very happy. The lunch was great!! There is a menu on the website and very good. I loved their veggie dishes. Coral was in very good condition. Highly recommended.
We had a fantastic day on the reef with Sunlover. A great experience with fantastic crew who are super friendly and very knowledgeable. Saw lots of great marine life including four turtles. The whole family loved it.
I highly recommend going out for the day on this reef trip if you’re in Cairns! Moore Reef is absolutely beautiful with so many different things to do on the pontoon your day will fly! My kids loved snorkelling, going on the glass bottom boat, watching the different fish in the underwater observatory, going on the semi sub and of course the water slide!
