The Reef Magic Cruises check-in & information counter is conveniently located in the Cairns Reef Fleet Terminal, easy walking distance from major inner city hotels or a short coach transfer from the Cairns beaches.

Cruises to the Marine World reef activity platform depart daily direct from Cairns on a fast, stable catamaran providing a smooth ride and less travel time, leaving more of your day to enjoy the reef. Unique to Reef Magic Cruises passenger numbers are restricted to well under the vessels capacity. With a crew member for every 11 guests visitors are assured friendly, attentive service and a genuine feeling of space. All activity levels are catered for with easy walk-in access to supervised swimming areas. Snorkel in a shallow, bright and sheltered coral lagoon, enjoy a range of world-class scuba diving options (no experience necessary) or join the Marine Biologist on a guided tour for a relaxed and educational introduction to the reef.

Not a confident swimmer? Then stay dry and enjoy the reef from the semi-submersible reef viewer or glass bottom boat and don’t miss the lively fish feeding demonstration from the underwater observatory or snorkel platform. For a completely different perspective Heli-Magic offers a range of breathtaking reef-scenic flights. Extensive coral formations are clearly visible through the clear coral sea water with common sightings of turtles, rays, reef sharks, schooling fish and even majestic Humpback Whales (July-September).
