The only half-day outer reef jet boat tour from Cairns.

Combining swift travel to the outer reef, with the full snorkel experience.
In only half a day, you will see everything you could see on a full day cruise.





The cheerful, helpful crew will greet you on arrival at E finger in the Cairns marina, go directly to the boat where you can check in at the floating office, adjacent to Skedaddle and anything outstanding can be sorted there. Once checked in and before boarding Skedaddle you will sign on the safety manifest and be asked to remove your shoes and leave any bags locked in the office. Skedaddle has an excellent soft deck, making shoes un-necessary.
We recommended not to bring bags or jewellery as they are not required for the two of hours you are snorkelling, rings can fall off your fingers after being in the water for a time and there is limited space on-board Skedaddle for bags. You need only the bare minimum you feel is required for snorkelling, we suggest you wear your swimming costume under your regular clothes to save time once at the reef.



On boarding Skedaddle our helpful crew will fit you with the correct sized fins and suit, make certain your mask seals properly, see if you require an optical mask and offer you a buoyancy vest. Additional noodles are carried on-board in any case. Once you have all your equipment they will guide you to your seat and stow your gear.


One thing to remember when selecting a seat – exciting at the front, smoother at the back.




Leaving the mainland at 12pm, the tour gets you back to Cairns by 4:30pm.
Jump aboard the noon jet to the outer reef! ½ Day Tour with a maximum of 36 passengers.




Ideal for when you do not wish to spend a full day on a Great Barrier Reef experience.



Mask/snorkel/fins/optical mask/buoyancy vest/noodle and either a stinger suit or wetsuit depending on the season are standard inclusions.
Most importantly the fare includes a free guided snorkel tour with an experienced guide.
