The Great Barrier Reef

Your guide to

The Great Barrier Reef

The Great Barrier Reef is amongst one of Australia’s iconic destinations, blessed with the breathtaking beauty of the world’s largest coral reef. The reef contains an abundance of marine life and comprises over 3000 individual reef systems and coral cays and literally hundreds of picturesque tropical islands with some of the world’s most beautiful sun-soaked, golden beaches.

The Great Barrier Reef is one of the seven wonders of the natural world, and pulling away from it, and viewing it from a greater distance, you can understand why. It is larger than the Great Wall of China and the only living thing on earth visible from space. Established Green Zones in the Great Barrier Reef have restricted fishing which has allowed the region to preserve and protect its marine life. The Great Barrier Reef is home to a diverse range of  marine life, including humpback whales, sharks, turtles, lobsters, crayfish and fish such as marlin and sailfish, making it one of the best places in the world to snorkel and dive. 

You can visit the Great Barrier Reef by either seaplane, helicopter, boat or your very own private yacht charter. With over 2,900 individual reefs and 900 islands stretching for over 2,300 kilometres, exploring the reef is best made possible on your own private yacht charter. Your skipper will take you to destinations untouched by most tourists, providing you with an exclusive Great Barrier Reef experience most do not get to enjoy. Snorkelling is one of the many activities included in your day and is one of the best ways to view the incredible underwater world of the Great Barrier Reef.

Lady Elliot Island, on the southern tip of the Great Barrier Reef, is known as the ‘Home of the Manta Ray’ – and with good reason.  A snorkelling encounter with these gentle giants is almost certainly on the cards, particularly if you visit during the winter months when they flock to the island on mass. But that’s not the only reason to choose Lady Elliot for your next snorkelling adventure. With underwater gardens that begin as soon as you step off the beach, a sheltered lagoon and coral outcrops perfect for little explorers, it’s one of the best snorkelling sites in Queensland.

From our experience, visiting the Great Barrier Reef is best done at a slow pace. With so much marine life, untouched islands and nature to explore, there is too much to do in one single day. Overnight yacht charters make the best experience on The Great Barrier Reef with an arsenal of water toys at your fingertips, snorkelling gear and tenders to explore out on, there’s no shortage of adventure on your own private yacht charter.
