Skedaddle Half Day Jet Boat Cruise to Michaelmas Cay

Do you want to experience snorkelling in the Great Barrier Reef, but have only a limited amount of time? With Skedaddle, it is possible. Check in 11.15 am directly on board Skedaddle E Finger Marlin Marina Cairns. Return time is approx back to Cairns by approximately 4.30 pm. This makes it ideal for anyone who is unable to spend a full day on a Great Barrier Reef experience.

You will have 2 and a half hours hours to explore the reef.
Over 40 years’ experience has shown us this is an ideal time, after two hours you have seen all that is on offer and are ready to move on. On a full day tour, you are away all day and may be at sea for over eight hours with only a few hours stopped at the reef. Taking out time for lunch, waiting and or queuing may leave you with not much more time to snorkel. And you are away all day. Whereas Skedaddle stops, without delay, snorkelling starts.

We have experienced and educated staff to guide your snorkelling experience when we arrive at the reef Our locations for snorkelling are selected for their healthy coral, which provides a habitat for colourful fish turtles, giant clams and small, ‘friendly’ reef sharks. The clear ocean water offers the utmost visibility. Our expert guides tow a life ring, which serves as a reference and additional floatation should you become tired while snorkelling. A limit of 36 passengers ensures a crowd free time on- board Skedaddle.
