Hi, my husband and I will be in Cairns for five days in early December. We've never been, and we are interested in snorkeling, and rainforest tours.
We do not want to self-drive as the roads are reverse from Canadian roads so we are a bit nervous. However, we do not like tours that are too touristy.
We are interested in a rainforest tour that allows us to walk/hike some of the time, rather than sit in a car all day long. We also would like a tour that is different from other tours (i.e., we don't want to go to places that are packed with other tourists). We were looking into the Bloomfield rainforest, Cape Tribulation, Daintree Explorer tour. Does anyone know anything about it. Can anyone recommend anything else that might be more suitable?
We are also interested in Snorkeling and perhaps an intro scuba trip. We are considering Ocean Spirit, or Tusa. Does anyone know anything about either of these trips?
We are staying at the Outrigger in Cairns. Is this a decent hotel?
Any other suggestions of what to see while we are there would be great.
Thanks in advance for your help!
