Full description
Experience snorkeling on the Great Barrier Reef- a once-in-a-lifetime experience. You will be transported to to the Crystalbrook Marina from your accommodation in comfort and style. As you are welcomed on board from 8:20am, an outline of the day is announced along with a safety briefing conducted by the experienced and knowledgeable crew. Depart the marina and venture to the World Heritage Great Barrier Reef Marine Park in new stable and comfortable vessels.

At 10:15am, arrive at the first reef site. Divers will be briefed while travelling to the reef. Once moored, divers are ready to go while all other guests are joined together for a snorkel briefing. See much of the reef’s colors and marine life - visible within just a couple of meters of the water’s surface. Snorkelling offers all swimmers, regardless of their skill level, the opportunity to see this diverse eco-system up close. Morning tea is served before moving to the second reef site.

A delicious buffet lunch will be served and you may choose to join the interpretive reef talk and or a guided snorkel tour- the choice is yours. Float effortlessly over rich, colorful coral gardens teeming with life from the cute and playful clownfish to the graceful beauty of the green turtle. Giant clams, stingrays, maori wrasse, cods and colorful parrotfish, are just some of the hundreds of species you may encounter. Arrive at the third and last reef site for the day at 1:40pm to snorkel, dive, relax, or spend the time as you wish. Afternoon tea is served before commencing the journey back to Port Douglas. Arrive back at the Crystalbrook Marina at 4:15pm for the transfer back to your accommodation if required.
