Aboard the Osprey V, enjoy the fastest journey to the Great Barrier Reef, at speeds of 30 knots. The Osprey can accommodate a maximum of 100 people, including 18 friendly, professional and attentive staff, and features state-of-the-art snorkeling and snorkeling equipment. This unique outing is one of the few excursions without a pontoon available, and meets your every need.

Go for a guided snorkel or join a free scuba course. If you prefer to admire the seabed without having to get wet, make yourself comfortable and enjoy a semi-submersible scuba diving trip with full commentary (semi-submersible scuba diving trip to be paid directly).

On the menu of your Australian barbecue for lunch: fresh fish, steak and sausages as well as a selection of pastas, salads and cold meats. On the way back to shore, following a rewarding day on the reef, you'll enjoy a cheese plate accompanied by a selection of tropical fruits, while musicians and artists entertain you to ensure that the journey of return is as fun and enjoyable as the rest of your day.

Why not conclude your Great Barrier Reef experience with a 10-minute scenic helicopter ride – Spend 5 hours aboard the Osprey V exploring the Great Barrier Reef and discovering the beauty of the underwater world on an introductory scuba or certified dive, and enjoy a buffet lunch, free provision of snorkeling equipment and an unforgettable 10-minute scenic helicopter ride over the fabulous Great Barrier Reef.
