    On boarding , store your bags and then grab a coffee or tea with a Danish pastry and fresh fruit and settle in while the rest of the guests board .

    If you have chosen the optional diving you will fill out a diving medical questionnaire onboard. Please ask our dive staff any questions you may have.

    After a head count the boat departs the dock at 8.00am . Listen to the safety brief as you depart the marina and start to get excited as your journey to the Great Barrier Reef begins ! On the way our helpful staff will give out snorkel equipment - again please be sure to ask any questions you may have . If diving you will also be briefed on the journey out .

    After just over an hour we arrive at our first Great Barrier Reef destination - the beautiful "Wonder Wall " - located on the outer edge of Upolu reef . Once moored our crew will conduct a snorkel brief showing you how and where to snorkel, where the Look Out is located and provide you with any assistance you require .

    Experience an informative complimentary Glass Bottom Boat Tour and a complimentary Adventure Drift Snorkel tour with our very attentive snorkel guides ( all top snorkel equipment included) .

    After a full morning of in-water activities or just relaxing sit back and enjoy a large smorgasbord lunch with smoked salmon, prawns , mixed meat, chicken platter , 3 different salads and assorted breads as we cruise to our second Great Barrier Reef site - Upolu Cay Reef .
    Snorkel this "coral garden" tropical blue oasis - look out for turtles and sting rays ! At times when conditions allow you can actually land on a small sandy cay but at all times you will have the shallow crystal clear turquoise waters to snorkel in .

    With only just over an hour to arrive at this first reef site and only 10 minutes travel time to the second reef site - Ocean Freedom offers six hours between both sites to enjoy all the activities and relax with no rush in the day.

    After a magical day we start our journey back to Cairns serving fresh fruit, cheese and crackers and cake whilst you chat to fellow travellers or just relax and take in the views - arriving back in Cairns by 4.15- 4.30 pm - well in time for a sunset drink on the esplanade !
