Scuba Diving & Snorkeling
Scuba diving and snorkeling is said to be the best way to explore the Great Barrier Reef. With scuba diving and snorkeling, you’re able to find adventure at a number of dive sites to swim with the marine life. You can head out for an afternoon of diving and snorkeling or book Great Barrier Reef tours for multiple days with a liveaboard. Your experience level doesn’t matter if you plan to scuba dive or snorkel as long as you’re able to swim. There are many diving courses available, so you don’t have to miss out if you’ve never dived before.
Liveaboard tours are another excellent choice for Great Barrier Reef scuba diving. Often, people choose to book liveaboard tours for multiple days, allowing them to visit more locations and take multiple dives. You can even dive at night! With liveaboard tours, you’ll spend more time in the water as there’s no need to head back to shore to eat or sleep. Everything you need is right onboard. Even if you don’t plan to scuba dive, you can sit on deck to watch the marine life from above or from a glass bottom boat.
Another amazing way to see the reef when on Great Barrier Reef tours is from above. Scenic flights provide you with a bird’s eye view of the reef, allowing you to see just how vast the reef system really is. There are scenic helicopter flights and even hot air balloon flights that will allow you to see the reef from above.
The Great Barrier Reef is home to many amazing islands, including Green Island and Lizard Island. You’re able to book island tours to visit many of the breathtaking tropical islands of the reef. You can snorkel or scuba dive at the islands, soak up the sun on the beaches, or explore the nature trails.
