Outer reef tour for dive and snorkel

I am interested in the best tour for dive and snorkeling. My sons snorkel and we dive...thanks. Also what accomodations do you recommend in Cairns for us traveling with 19 and 25 year old boys?

Lastly, what other side trips are good, i heard about the jungle top ride...any thoughts?

SilverSwift our of Cairns is a great boat. Snorkelling and diving at 3 locations.

Somewhere near the Esplanade is a good place to stay. There's a great lagoon there, and a load of great restuarants.

Skyrail and Kuranda would probably be one of the top tourist things to do, but you might also like hiring a car and driving to the Daintree rainforest, or doing a tour from Cairns. There's loads of attractions like the Rainforest Habitat at Port Douglas and Cairns Zoo that are great as well.

Id like a smaller boat that doesnt have us packed like sardines...if possible. Or, in March it may not be as busy...thoughts?
