On the eastern end of Moore Reef, there is a well-known outer reef platform called Reef Magic Marine World. Marine World is a specially constructed, two-story pontoon with a variety of amenities on its roomy decks. In order to give you the time and space to enjoy all the included and optional activities, we choose comfort over crowds.

Additionally, our activities include everything from lounging on the sundeck to scuba diving among the fish, making them ideal for families or parties looking for a variety of activities.
Reef Magic Marine World’s platform, therefore, accommodates all levels of activity. Swim with the fish in the protected coral lagoon at Moore Reef’s easternmost point. Take a guided snorkel safari with our marine biologist, try scuba diving, or even Sea Trek helmet diving.

Relax in Comfort

Take some time out on our roomy sundeck if lounging about and enjoying the warm tropical weather is more your style while you’re on Reef Magic. However, when you cruise with Reef Magic Cruises, you mostly benefit from the knowledgeable local expertise.
