Passions of Paradise Outer Reef Trip


Passions of Paradise travels daily to two destinations. The first is to Michaelmas Cay and the second is to Paradise Reef.
Both locations have an abundance of fish and coral, and the coral is located right next to the boat so you don’t have to swim far to see it.
Soft coral is most common around the cay, while hard corals are found at Paradise Reef because the water is deeper. This means you get to snorkel two completely different reef systems in one day.
All snorkeling is in areas where coral formations rise to within a couple of meters of the surface and the snorkel gear is the highest quality. For nervous snorkellers, crew are on hand to teach you the finer points.
We have complimentary buoyancy vests, and we hold one of the very rare permits which allow our passengers access to the cay. This means you can learn to snorkel at the waters edge on the beach.

Glass Bottom Boat
For those passengers who wish to see the wonders of the Great Barrie Reef and not get wet, the company has recently built a custom designed glass bottom tender.

Introductory Divers
So you would like to get up close and personal with the fish and the coral like Jaques Cousteau!!!
Intro diving is safe, fun, easy and the best way to see the Great Barrie Reef. Our Diving Instructors are highly experienced, calm and fun to be with.
NO experience is necessary, and you don’t even have to be able to swim. You will be given a full on-deck briefing, shown how the equipment works and in small groups of no more than 4 divers, be led on a Diving Instructor controlled dive.
At the end of the dive you’ll have seen the reef, fish and coral the natural way and had heaps of fun doing so.

Certified Divers
Certified scuba divers have a beautiful range of reefs to dive. Paradise Reef is on the true Outer Great Barrier Reef where the water visibility is best and the coral most dramatic.
We have a selection of drift dives, wall dives and, when conditions are right, our high speed diving tender will take you to selected remote pinnacles.
The diving equipment is the highest quality and includes an Aladin Sports computer, Scubapro Glide 500 BCD, Oceanic split fins, TUSA Liberator mask and Uwatec guages.
