Full description
Experience a full-day Great Barrier Reef snorkeling adventure, taking you to selected moorings around Bait Reef. Visit dive sites around Bait Reef including Stepping Stones, Paradise Lagoon and Mantaray drop-off. Travel in style on a custom designed dive vessel which has two levels of air-conditioned luxury, lounge-style seating, a partially shaded deck and freshwater hot and cold showers. Discover both locations, packed with coral, color and marine life. See the fringing inner reef, with its bright colors from the soft coral that grows around these areas. Find numerous smaller reef-dwelling fish such as parrotfish, angelfish, batfish, damselfish and fusiliers. At the outer reef, you can expect to see a hard coral platform reef with impressive drop offs and friendly, resident giant trevallies.

      Staff were lovely, the boat was nice and overall a really good day! The reef isn't as beautiful as I remember from last time I visited... definitely due to global warming unfortunately. Still a must see if you're up this way! It would be cool to visit 2 very different parts of the reef!

      Unfortunately we didn’t get to do the Great Barrier Reef as the weather was horrid. However, the guides made the best of a bad situation and we ended up going out to a few other really cool places in the Whitsundays. Would definitely recommend this company to anyone. We had the best day and would definitely be back to do the reef tour with these guys. Money well spent

Perhaps the equipment could be a little better as it is old and the guides explain a little better, but overall it was a good experience. It would improve the food and drink service on board a bit since you have to buy the drink and they do not have cold water for the heat that makes
