Enjoy a total of five hours of water activities split between two unique sites showcasing a variety of colourful corals and marine life on The Great Barrier Reef. Snorkel and dive over stunning coral gardens where anemones, sea whips, clams and plate corals are home to clownfish, angelfish and batfish. Large schools of giant trevally, red bass and sweetlip congregate between the bommies, while turtles, cuttlefish, rays, and sharks are frequently seen.

Admire the beauty of the reef on a boat tour, where your experienced guide will explain the natural history of the reef, as well as its importance to the indigenous tribes of the region. Guides will recount the stories of the Gimuy Walubara Yidinji, Gunggandji, Mandingalbay, and Yirrganydji people to help you gain a deeper cultural understanding of this diverse ecosystem. Enjoy morning and afternoon tea, as well as a delicious buffet lunch to keep you fuelled throughout the day.
