Great Barrier Reef

Immerse yourself in one of the world's most spectacular natural wonders and discover a pristine underwater wonderland.

The central section of the Great Barrier Reef has less boating traffic and impact from human activity, giving snorkelers and divers a truly breathtaking experience. Follow schools of marine life weaving through the vibrant coloured corals which fill the ocean floor, find nemo hiding amongst anemones and cruise alongside rays and turtles.

Throughout the experience you'll discover how the reef is managed, what makes it such an incredible place and all about creatures which call it home. Take away lifetime memories and discover this majestic world that offers a guaranteed wow factor.

Day trips often visit Lodestone Reef, home to a variety of habitats from shallow areas with white sandy sea floor and large coral bommies (outcrops), to steep slopes with deep crevasses, hosting a great diversity of fish life, including small damsels and butterfly fish to larger animals like the giant trevally and occasional reef shark.

The multi day trips do most of the travelling at night to maximise the dive time on the reef and visit a variety of locations. These locations could include Wheeler Reef, with its white sandy cay and many pelagic species; Davies Reef with pinnacles rising from 30 metres and shallower bommies riddled with swim throughs and caves ; Barra Bommie at Little Broadhurst Reef, where you can spot an octopus and Australia’s best dive, the SS Yongala Wreck.
