Marine World Pontoon at Great Barrier Reef

Experience the magic of the Great Barrier Reef at Marine World pontoon.

When traveling with Reef Magic Cruises, you benefit from the expert local knowledge of an Australian owned, Cairns based crew who bring the friendly inclusive atmosphere for which we are renowned for. The all-weather Marine World platform caters for all activity levels. Snorkel in the sheltered coral lagoon, join our Marine Biologist on a Guided Snorkel Safari, or try SNUBA® (subject to additional charges on-site)!

If simply relaxing & soaking up the tropical warmth is more your style, take time out on our spacious sundeck. Should you wish to opt for non-underwater activities, we got you covered as well, with our Underwater Observatory and glass-bottom boat tours. There is something to do for everyone with Reef Magic Cruises!
