Reef Magic Cruises has exclusive access to a stunning coral reef location selected for its superior water clarity, coral quality and overall diversity of marine life. Located on the pristine Moore Reef is our specially designed platform, Marine World, where you will spend up to 5 hours on the water with a wide range of activities to choose from including:

  • Diving

  • Certified diving: Enjoy a selection of drift, wall and channel dives, swim-throughs, small caves, ledges and drop-offs accessible only to Marine World visitors
  • Helmet diving: A unique underwater adventure exploring to a depth of 3 metres without even getting your hair wet, which is perfect for the non-swimmer or nervous diver
  • Guided snorkel tours
  • Coral Gardens Tour (approx 30 mins): This incredibly popular and informative introduction to the reef is conducted in a shallow, bright and sheltered coral lagoon directly off the Marine World platform for first-time snorkelers
  • Snorkel Safari (approx 50 mins): Drift snorkel one of the spectacular Reef Magic walls, famous for their extensive coral formations and huge schools of fish for experienced snorkelers
  • SEABOB Tour (30 minutes): Take your snorkelling adventure to the next level with SEABOB, the worlds most advanced jet-powered scooter. Glide effortlessly on and below the water (to a depth of 2.5 metres) using simple body movements to control this exciting, environmentally friendly machine. Your expert guide can teach you to duck-dive and perform barrel rolls while taking you to reef areas inaccessible to other visitors. Tour lasts for 30 minutes.

At your own pace, while under the supervision of your certified SNUBA guide, explore to a depth of 3 metres with no bulky equipment, just a mask, fins, SNUBA harness and a lightweight belt. Air tanks are held in the specially designed SNUBA raft which floats on the surface and follows behind you as you swim.
