So Much Choice – Which is the best tour for me?

When you choose a snorkelling tour on the Great Barrier Reef it will often be a once in a lifetime experience. At StandbyCairns we appreciate this and is why this page displays our top ten snorkelling trips to the Great Barrier Reef. We have selected these trips based on a number of criteria including travel reviews from our own experienced travel consultants and guests’ reviews from many of the hundreds of passengers we book to the Great Barrier Reef everyday. We also will not sell tours and cruises on tour companies who don’t have exceptional standing in the Cairns Tourism Community, or who are not members of our local tourism body Tourism Tropical North Queensland. The difference with booking with StandbyCairns is that we are a local Cairns family company, meaning that you can call and talk to us in person, or better yet you can visit us at one of our many Local Travel Outlets. This gives you the assurance that we will not just sell you the trip that makes us more money (like many of the other tour websites out there…), because we are held accountable by our customers as they can visit us in person when they are in Cairns.
