The Sunlover Reef Cruises invites the domestic and international visitors to enjoy these holidays in its family-friendly floating theme-parks. The Cairns-based reef operator has invested in experiences that will suit the taste of young children and families.
The reef operator has constantly been trying to improve its visitor experiences for a year. It has undertaken a series of fresh and inventive activities that allow the guests to traverse the outer part of Great Barrier Reef World Heritage area.
The company has built to floating theme-parks or pontoons in Arlington Reef and Moore Reef. With a 30-meter water slide and a 300 square metre area for the sundeck and lounge, the pontoon in the Moore Reef made its debut in May this year.
The theme-park in the Arlington Reef will start its operation from December 16, 2017. It will offer families and kids to enjoy Cairn’s first half-day tour to the Outer Barrier Reef.
Both pontoons have marine life touch tanks, supervised and maintained every day by marine specialists. The guests can touch the sea creatures inside the tank while the specialists educate them with informative presentations.
Sunlover also launched Marine Biologists for A Day this year – an educational program that allows students to become citizen scientists for a day. The initiative has already gained popularity in schools and their students. It’s an opportunity for the schoolers to have a hands-on experience on the Great Barrier Reef and learn about the supervision of the largest living organism in the world.
Sunlovers Reef Cruises is currently the last pontoon business in Cairns that is owned by an Australian company and operated locally. Mr Eugene Kotze, the General Manager of the reef operator, urged the locals to support the business to keep it alive.
