A multi award winning Great Barrier Reef Tour from Cairns. This Great Barrier Reef Tour is another of my favourites as a local. Why? Passions of Paradise is a true local family business operating since 1987. In 2017 they built Passions III at 30 meters, it is one of the fastest and largest sailing catamarans in Australia. Built to travel at 14 to 15 knots, Passions III can access the furthermost outer reef locations. World class reefs such as Flynn, Milne and Norman can all be reached within a day trip. Passions sail to two unique Great Barrier Reef locations. Each day they select the best sites suited to weather conditions of the day. You will truly have a unique Great Barrier Reef experience with a company that is truly passionate about the reef and their customers.

In May 2019 Passions of Paradise became part of the Coral Nurturing program.  This is the first time on the reef that researchers and tourism operators have worked side by side! They have installed six frames at Hastings reef which can be used as a nursery to grow more corals.
