passengers and they can take you out to the Great Barrier Reef in only

Out on the Great Barrier Reef Reef you will see thousands
of brightly colored fish, sea turtles, giant clams and even some harmless
small reef sharks.

either Undine Reef or Mackay Reef where you will visit two different
sites with at least two hours spent on the reef.
In Cape Tribulation there is no guaranteed whale sighting
like they have in places such as Hervey Bay where they spend time in
the bay, but the whales have often been seen passing while they travel
