What a day we had!! Let’s set the scene… perfect weather, calm seas, thousands of fish just waiting for us to come and explore their world!
It took us about 2.5 hours to get to the Great Barrier Reef by boat; on the way out we were lucky enough to see whales on their annual migration. Once we arrived we all suited up with wetsuits, fins, masks and snorkels then it was straight off the boat and into the amazing blue water below!
We became the eyes and ears of the marine biologists and were given water proof pens and paper to take some surveys of exactly what we were seeing. Giant Clams, soft and hard corals, sea cucumbers and fish –every color of the rainbow. Some of the group have an amazing story of seeing one of the most feared creatures a white tip reef shark!
Coming back on board everyone had theirs own story of adventure and tales to tell. All agreed that is was “one of the best days of the entire trip”.
Those that didn’t have enough water time today, got to enjoy the hotels beautiful lagoon style pool after dinner.
