Reef to Rainforest: ReelCrayZee Charters

Visit two of the top North Queensland tourist destinations in one day with us! Snorkel the spectacular Great Barrier Reef for the morning and then visit the magical Paronella Park in the afternoon.
Snorkel the Great Barrier Reef

No visit to FNQ is complete without a trip to the Great Barrier Reef! And why not do it on a personalised level with Reelcrayzee Charters. We cater for smaller groups of 8 people to ensure you get the ultimate reef experience.

The Great Barrier Reef is one of the most well-known natural attractions and is the world’s largest coral reef. Our boat – the 30ft Kevlacat Sportsfisher, will have you to the reef in comfort and style – with a cruising speed of 26 knots. With ample seating, loads of esky space and a toilet onboard – it comes with everything you need for a great day.

Paronella Park

Step back in time and be amazed by the ingenuity and determination shown by one man with a dream. Paronella Park today is a celebration of the Paronella family’s achievements, particularly those of it’s founder, Jose Paronella.

On arrival, our guests are taken through many highlights of the Park on a 45 minute storytelling tour. This tour sets the scene for the rest of your visit.

Paronella Park has something for everyone. Fantastic photo opportunities, remarkable architecture, an incredible story, 5 hectares of tropical gardens, a fully restored and operational 1930’s hydro electric generator, wildlife and fish feeding, a boutique caravan and camping grounds, a cafe with fresh local produce and much more.

You arrive not knowing what to expect and depart with memories you wish to cherish forever.
