Friday 2nd & Saturday 3rd December 2016 Report

Posted: 02 Dec 2016

On the second day of Summer and boy do we know it! The awesome visibility at Marine World continued today and the sun was beaming down and the water temperature was perfect! The guided Snorkel Safari was the tour to be on today. Justin guided the safari onto the outer reef wall and along the drop off as conditions excelled on Moore Reef. Taking a leisurely swim over the caves and crevasses of the reef our safari goers got a fantastic view of the reef system below and were so lucky to spot a stingray and a moray eel lurking in a crevasse just below a boulder coral, amongst a lot of other marine life. Plans for the weekend?

Our passengers had a relaxing 5 hours at the reef today where they enjoyed a range of wet & dry activities. Today the Introductory Scuba Diving was the most popular activity at Marine World on the Great Barrier Reef. Our instructors supervise small groups of about four passengers, and led them around the lagoon area near the pontoon. On the ocean floor, the divers got up close and personal with the gorgeous and friendly ‘Wally’ the Maori Wrasse.

About Palm Cove

Where the foothills of the rainforest clad mountains meet the palm fringed beaches of the Coral Sea nestles Cairns' premier beach destination - Palm Cove.

A dawn walk in the ever present company of brightly coloured lorikeets, kookaburras, flocks of sulphur crested cockatoos, wallabies and rare green tree frogs, belies the fact that Palm Cove is just 20 minutes north of the Cairns International Airport.

Palm Cove, your ultimate lifestyle destination, is both affordable and caters for all accommodation needs, from international standard resorts to self catering holiday apartments, all carefully positioned amongst majestic melaleuca trees interspersed with coconut palms and tropical gardens.

Wherever you stay in Palm Cove you have access to the World Heritage rainforest, the Great Barrier Reef boarding from the Palm Cove Pier or you can simply enjoy nature's playground with an exciting challenge and adventures like white water rafting, canoeing, horse riding or trekking. Those who are less energetic can enjoy a fascinating glimpse of this ancient world dominated by pre-historic tree ferns, travelling by four-wheel drives, rainforest cableway, train or coach.

Palm Cove, with its distinctive character and intimate ambience, its old world charm with splashes of tropical colour, its Australian architecture, its idyllic setting, glorious sunshine, serenity and security - will enchant you! So take a leisurely stroll along the picturesque esplanade and enjoy the experience of the village shopping precinct with its many specialty shops. Take a swim on the patrolled beach, walk to the tranquil beaches of Clifton or Kewarra.

It's your holiday... floral scents, flashes of gigantic butterflies and the tiniest of brilliantly coloured sun birds, balmy nights and a magnificent beach front setting - this is Palm Cove. So whether you do it all or chose to do nothing, Palm Cove will leave you with a lifetime of memories to treasure.

Palm Cove is Cairns' most popular holiday beach, for locals and visitors. Its long sandy beach is lined by tropical coconut trees on one side and the clear, blue waters of the Coral Sea on the other. The beachfront esplanade is shaded by ancient paperbark trees and peppered with hotels, restaurants and retail opportunities. Cairns and its international and domestic airport is a 40-minute drive south, the rainforest is on the mountains behind you and the Great Barrier Reef lies offshore, waiting to be explored. A stunning destination in paradise.
