“Amazing guide to the reef!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 2, 2013

Gareth gave a fun, informative introduction to the GBR. In addition to lots of interesting marine biology, he gave lots of guidance on where to look for amazing creatures. I learned about cleaning stations and how they are great places to see all sorts of interesting fish!! I thoroughly enjoyed the presentation and it made my visit to the reef something truly special.

“A really enjoyable way to learn!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 16, 2013

I am just about to do my open water course and hearing and understanding all that I am about to see just makes everything even more exciting. To hear about another world under water explained by such a friendly and enthusiastic person increases my interest and it's fun!

“Fabulous - a must do!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 3, 2013

This is well worth a visit! Gareth and Natalie are masters in their field. The presentation is well worth doing whether you are heading out to the reef or not. Really informative, fun,entertaining, hands on, interactive and well presented. Take the time (2 hours) and learn about our amazing great barrier reef! Thanks Gareth great informative presentation!

“Perfect intro to visiting the Reef”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 17, 2012 via mobile

The session provides excellent information and is great fun, too - highly recommended to go there before you go out to the reef for diving or snorkeling as you will then realize many more things you heard during the teach.

“Go to Reef Teach before visiting the Great Barrier Reef!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 16, 2012 via mobile

Reef Teach is a great way to know what to look for and what you are looking at if you are going to get in the water and discover the Great Barrier Reef. Or even if you are just interested in it.
Learn things you didn't know, be amazed, be entertained! Specimens are shown and passed around and it's a fun, interactive learning environment!
It will be of benefit to snorkellers and divers and everyone else!
