Additional Information
  • Our team assesses each guest's snorkelling and diving abilities, providing appropriate assistance to ensure everyone can fully enjoy the Great Barrier Reef.
  • Please note that guests should have mobility to embark and disembark from the dinghy onto the beach and the main vessel.
  • If self drive - where can I park?
    We are located at the Marlin Marina Cairns with check-in at the Ocean Free & Ocean Freedom desk inside the Reef Fleet Terminal.

    In this particular area, the closest parking areas, with just a few minutes’ walk to the Reef Fleet Terminal are

    Southern Esplanade: this is located at 1, Spence Str Cairns and is public open air car park which costs around $15 for the whole day (pay upfront at the machines) This car park could be a good option if you are in a campervan as being open air means there are no height restrictions
    Undercover car park in the Shangri-La Hotel (next door to the Terminal) there is a public car park which is underground which costs $20 (If you leave the car park before 6pm) but this does fill up quickly, so if there are no spaces underneath you might end up having to park in the open-air car park anyway.
    Please ensure you use these prices as a rough gauge as they are subject to change at any time
