Day 1: Arrive Cairns

Well Good morning Cairns you delightful palm tree paradise. We have two days here to get deep - which may even mean a scuba dive on one of the 7 natural wonders of the world. Whether diving or snorkeling, one things for sure - you’ll be blown away with the beauty of the reed. Spot tiny Nemos, giant Maori wrasse, even reef sharks if you’re lucky. Marie biologists may be on board to answer the inevitable ‘what fish is that’ question.
