Enjoy a full day of adventure tour from Cairns combining an unforgettable hot air ballooning experience with an afternoon exploring the wonders of the Outer Great Barrier Reef. Start the day nice and early by taking off in a graceful hot air balloon over Cairns with a peaceful ride over the picturesque Atherton Tablelands. From this unique vantage point it is easy to see why Cairns is the hot air ballooning capital of the world, this ultimate scenic experience is an absolute must-do activity in Cairns. Drift over the hills and watch the sun rise before floating back down to earth to be transferred to your next adventure for the day!

Your next portion of your exciting day tour in Cairns is a day out on the Great Barrier Reef. The reef cruise departs Cairns and takes you to visit an awesome water activity platform. From here you can snorkel and swim to your hearts content! Even if you donโ€™t want to swim there is plenty to see and do โ€“ you can even explore the reef via the underwater observatory and check out the fish on a semi-submersible reef viewing tour! The reef cruise includes morning and afternoon tea and a buffet lunch, use of snorkel gear and eco reef talk!

There is also a wide variety of optional activities to partake in out on the reef such as underwater scooters, scenic helicopter flights, scuba diving and guided snorkel tours or you can simply relax and enjoy the fact that you are hanging out on one of the most amazing natural wonders of the world!

Angela Ni 2 years ago We had a wonderful experience, both up in the air (hot air balloon) and down in the sea (Great Barrier Reef). The ride up in the hot air balloon was extremely memorable, as we not only blessed with clear skies but also friendly staff members. The cruise vessel that we took for our trip to the outer reef was spacious and clean. Even though the ride was rough and bumpy, all staff members remained very professional and ensured that all passengers were kept comfortable. All in all, I'll definitely recommend this package! :)

Get to bed early the night before the tour, as you will be up very early for ballooning then will be exerting plenty of energy snorkelling out at the reef.
