Take 80 of your finest team members out for a day of scuba diving and snorkeling on the Great Barrier Reef in Australia as a reward for great effort and a day to celebrate success on our high speed private charter boat from Cairns.

Our charter boat in Cairns has a special roving permit with 16 of Cairns’ best Outer Great Barrier Reef dive sites to choose from on a daily basis.

The charter boats skipper and crew decide which 2 coral reef locations the private charter boat will explore each day to dive and snorkel based on the tides, currents, weather and wind direction to ensure each time they take groups out snorkelling and scuba diving on the Great Barrier Reef it will be to places that provide the best possible conditions for a great day on the reef for everyone.

She is 24 metres long and is surveyed to carry groups of up to 100 guests but we prefer to keep the numbers to a maximum of 80 guests to ensure plenty of space for everyone to enjoy the day both inside the boat and outside on the upper decks.

We offer private charter boat tours for full day tours on the Great Barrier Reef or half day tours, island tours and also sunset evening tours around Cairns.

Great Barrier Reef Charter Boat

On our full day reef trips, our private charter boat visits selected reefs within a 50km (35 mi) radius from Cairns. 

We have a special roaming permit to choose from 16 reef sites that are scattered on the reefs lying close to the edge of Australia’s continental shelf, where the best visibility and most spectacular corals and marine life can be found.

Each day the charter boats skipper will choose two sites to maximise diving and snorkelling for the day’s conditions.

About the Cairns Private Charter Boat

 Launched in 2011, the high speed catamaran offers small group tours to the outer Great Barrier Reef with departures from Cairns, the gateway to the Great Barrier Reef.

Custom designed for diving and snorkelling, the boat incorporates the latest technology and environmental best practices, including greater fuel efficiency through improved hull design, and a full 2 stage waste treatment plant on board.

The charter boat continues the tradition of smaller passenger numbers and greater service on board the 24m catamaran.

We limit passenger numbers to just 60 guests on day tours but are surveyed to carry up to 100  guests but prefer to cater for groups of 80 guests on our group tours to ensure a premium experience for all.
