About Superyacht For Cairns
Toss the budget overboard and treat yourself to the adventure of a lifetime on a Super Yacht charter through the Great Barrier Reef.
Gather together a like minded group of people and prepare an itinerary that is as adventurous or as lavish as you choose. Super Yacht charter excursions can be as short as 3 days cruising the Great Barrier Reef or you can prepare long range expedition charters exploring untouched wilderness areas of Cape York and the Kimberley.
Cruising is phenomenally popular in Australia and the typical luxury traveller can expect good value for their money with a high staff to passenger ratio, first-class style and outstanding food. The activities enjoyed on an expedition cruise give you a chance to connect with nature and experience the romance and excitement of exploration.
So, come and enjoy the Great Barrier Reef from your Jacuzzi with a martini in one hand and a camera in the other.
Cruising is recommended all year round, however, preferable during the months of May to December.
The prevailing winds from March to August are south-easterlies with northerlies occurring from September to February.
