The Great Barrier Reef


A World Heritage listed site and the largest living thing on Earth, the Great Barrier Reef is rich with coral and teeming with marine life. Explore intricate coral gardens, see brightly-coloured tropical fish, molluscs and maybe even visiting reef sharks, dolphins and turtles. Board a high-speed catamaran, enjoy an informative presentation by a marine naturalist, the outer Great Barrier Reef is just 90 minutes away. Once you’re fitted with your equipment there’s easy access to the water from the back of the vessel. After lunch there’s more time to swim or snorkel. If you’re feeling adventurous you can try an introductory or certified scuba experience (additional cost).
