The Moore Reef pontoon is the perfect destination to experience all that the outer reef has to offer. Visitors of all ages and abilities can view and interact with the reef in so many ways.

Snorkel in the naturally coral-fringed lagoon while trained lifeguards keep watch. There are two snorkel platforms on the pontoon with water access via stairs, providing easy entry to explore Moore Reef. An enclosed ocean pool is great for kids to swim in the saltwater at wading height, while a slide down the 30-metre spiral waterslide is a great way to enter the tropical ocean.

If you prefer to stay dry during your visit to the Pontoon, there are still plenty of options to explore. A semi-submersible tour is a great way to tour Moore Reef without jumping in the water while a glass-bottom boat tour provides views from above. Visit the underwater observatory to view the impressive natural fish tank with views of Moore Reef from the pontoon. You will be able to see plenty of coral and marine life as well as a Scuba Diver or two! A visit to the touch tank gets you up close to marine life while learning about this unique ecosystem.

In addition to the included activities, the Moore Reef Pontoon also has optional upgrades to explore the reef. Add a guided-snorkel tour to learn from the experts, while a Seawalker helmet dive is a unique way to see Moore Reef from below. If you are interested in diving, there are options for both introductory and certified scuba divers.  A scenic helicopter flight takes you further to view the entire Moore Reef coral system from above.
