The Great Barrier Reef Marine Park
The Great Barrier Reef is made up of over 2900 individual reefs and  is undisputed as one of the world’s most important natural assets. The Great Barrier Reef is the largest natural feature on earth stretching more than 2,300km along the northeast coast of Australia.

The ultimate way to experience The Great Barrier Reef is to be there amongst it, exploring the beautiful, colourful coral formations and swimming with masses of enchanting sea life. From the tiny Clown Fish to the massive Napolean Maori Wrasse, from the Giant Clams to the Stingrays and Turtles, every moment spent on or under the sea is one of discovery and amazement.

We have carefully selected our exclusive reef moorings based on the diversity of marine life and distance from other tourists boats. These areas are selected to be free of strong currents. Water temperatures range from 24 degrees Celsius in Winter to 30 degrees Celsius in Summer. Underwater visibility is typically 10 to 30 metres.
