Important Notes

Things you need to know about this tour

We check in 7:30 am at our counter at the Cairns Reef Fleet Terminal at the end of Spence Street, Marlin Marina. The boat is located about 50 meters away on the Marlin Jetty and we depart at 8 am.

We return at around 5 pm. We always try to do some genuine sailing on the way home (no motors), and so times can vary either way by 10 or 15 minutes – but generally, it is 5 pm.

 Passions of Paradise reserves the right to cancel the day tour due to poor weather conditions, mechanical problems or use another vessel, or travel to different reef sites.

We offer a two destination itinerary. We will visit two outer reef locations chosen from our brand new selection of 24 spectacular destinations.  At times; the weather may make one of these destinations unsafe or impractical to visit. On those days, we may only visit one location. In poor weather, it is up to the Skippers discretion as he travels to the reef to decide which locations will be visited. He will choose keeping in mind your safety, the safety of the boat and your comfort. There are no refunds when the itinerary is changed.
