Travel aboard a high-speed catamaran to a reef pontoon that boasts an underwater viewing chamber, semi-submersible, a waterslide and a spacious sun-deck. The Great Barrier Reef is truly one of the great wonders of the natural world and a 'must-see' for any visitor to the region.

Discover the underwater wonderland of one of the region’s most acclaimed outer Great Barrier Reef sites. Enjoy sheltered snorkeling and diving all year round, with amazing colorful corals and abundant marine life.

Whether you are a first timer or an experienced diver, fully certified dive instructors ensure that you have a memorable dive.

One of the highlights of my trip to Oz - can't recommend this trip highly enough - you must take up the offer of the scuba diving - I had reservations as I hadn't even snorkelled before and only wish id done the scuba diving.
