Itinerary

Dive and Snorkel Upolu Reef

Our sail boats destination for our day of snorkelling and scuba diving is the Upolu Reef which is approximately 32.3 kilometres from the Cairns Marlin Marina and forms a continuation of the Arlington Reef.

This outer Barrier Reef system offers guests a wide variety of hard and soft corals, giant bommies, staghorn, plate, brain and boulder corals along with large and small clam shells.

Some of the marine life you will see are the ever so shy black tip and white tip reef sharks, small stingrays hiding under the sand, sea cucumbers, turtles, starfish and lots of colourful pelagic fishes.

Due to the size of the Upolu Reef snorkelers and scuba divers are blessed with a wide variety of marine life gin clear water which normally offers underwater visibility up to 15 metres and water depths of up 8-15 metres 

When entering the water we advise our private charter groups to be prepared to be greeted by the friendly fish duo Emily & Max, the resident Bat Fish that just love coming up to the scuba divers and snorkelers to say hello.

Emily and Max know the exact time to be at the Upolu Reef mooring in the hope they may have a free feed and get a bit of loving attention from our guests.

There are quite a number of fish on the Great Barrier Reef who are tuned into the times the Great Barrier Reef tour boats arrive at their little patch on the reef and to the guests delight, they are always there to meet the them as they enter the water.

Each of these fish have names and they are as playful as little puppies and certainly love to dominate in underwater photographs so ensure you bring your waterproof camera along.
