Ocean Freedom day trip

Discover the Beauty of the Great Barrier Reef with Ocean Freedom

Set sail on an unforgettable journey to explore the magnificent Great Barrier Reef aboard Ocean Freedom, a modern and comfortable 20-meter motor catamaran. Our expertly curated tour takes you to two exceptional reef sites - Upolu Cay area and Outer Edge Upolu - where you can dive and snorkel to your heart's content in the crystal-clear waters teeming with diverse marine life.

Certified and introductory diving and snorkeling options ensure that everyone can enjoy the underwater wonders of the reef, regardless of experience level. With six hours dedicated to visiting just two sites, you'll have ample time to indulge in multiple dives and snorkeling sessions, as well as time to unwind onboard while savoring a delightful lunch.

To enhance your Great Barrier Reef experience, we also offer a complimentary glass-bottom boat tour, subject to sea conditions on the day, allowing you to admire the stunning coral formations from a unique perspective. Additionally, our adventure drift snorkel tour provides an exciting way to explore the beauty of the reef.

Certified divers can take advantage of our complimentary guide service, ensuring a carefree and enjoyable experience as you marvel at the picturesque surroundings of Upolu Cay and the "Wonder Wall" on the outer edge of Upolu Reef.

As an Advanced Ecotourism Certified operator, Ocean Freedom is committed to sustainable practices and ensuring the preservation of this natural wonder for future generations.
