Selected as a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1981, the reef is home to a mind-boggling array of marine life—whales, dolphins, porpoises, dugongs, sea turtles, sharks, stingray, giant clams, seahorses, sea snakes—and the list goes on and includes more than 1,500 fish species.

There is a range of available tours to suit any traveler, depending on your time and sense of adventure. Whether you'd like to tour for a few hours or a few days, underwater, on land, or even from above, see below for your options.
