Great Barrier Reef Tours

As one of the seven wonders of the world, a UNESCO World Heritage Site and the world’s biggest system of coral reefs, the Great Barrier Reef needs no introduction. Sprawling over 340,000 square kilometres, the Great Barrier Reef can be seen from outer space! The inimitable Great Barrier Reef is home to an astonishingly diverse ecosystem, and is inhabited by more than 1,500 different species of fish and over 400 varieties of coral.

Clearly, a visit to the Great Barrier Reef is going to require that you get your feet wet. Numerous tours are available that can give you the chance to sail past idyllic islands on crystal clear waters. Whether you prefer to explore the high seas in a dynamic little catamaran or float majestically past untouched islets on a luxurious cruise ship, there are options available for everyone. Explore secluded tropical islands and pristine sandy beaches before taking once again to the turquoise seas.

While above sea level the numerous islands, which can range from tiny cays to large land masses with varied terrain, are certainly a sight to behold, it is the mysterious world beneath the sea that most visitors come for. Snorkelling, diving and swimming are essential in making your visit to the Great Barrier Reef as awe-inspiring and as unforgettable as possible. While facing the deep blue sea all on your own can be intimidating, joining a tour will help you get up close and personal with the coral reef. A trusted guide will ensure you stay safe at all times. If you have never tried diving, there is no better place to take a class and get certified than the Great Barrier Reef.
