The best Great Barrier Reef Locations
Our tours have the option of visiting many different Reef locations across many of the best outer Great Barrier Reefs.
56+The places visited will be decided by your boat’s Captain each day – to provide the best conditions based on the current weather, time of year and other circumstances.
As the coral on the Great Barrier Reef needs sunlight to survive and grow, the best reef locations are in relatively shallow areas.
Snorkelling area depths range from 1 – 12 metres deep (3 – 40 feet).
