What About Cancelation Policies?

So as most companies are well and truly working under COVID conditions most companies are trying to be as flexible as they can. If a COVID outbreak happens and there are border closures, most Cairns Reef Tour operators will first ask if you can open date your ticket.

What does this do? Number one this really allows you to come back anytime in the future and enjoy your day out on the reef with no additional charge or loss of money. Second, this allows the tour operators important cash flow, this allows the operators to continue thru the lockdown so that you can enjoy your tour in the future.

Also in general if you can give more than 3-Days notice if you really cannot come back most Cairns Reef Tour operators are offering full refunds. Although they will ask if you can really open date your ticket first. This is really important as it helps keep reef tour companies afloat and employing staff.

What’s the Weather Like at Easter?

April is generally a transitional month here in Cairns, usually the wet season or monsoon season has finished and the winds are still nice and calm with beautiful warm water and blue skies and sunshine.

As with any month of the year, the weather can be erratic but in general, the weather in APRIL is usually very beautiful and sunny. For more detailed information please see our guide – Dive Seasons in Cairns
