“Beautiful Sight from Above.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 11, 2014 via mobile

We took a aerial sight of the Heart Reef and later on went to the approximate area for snorkeling from a float. Both experiences were magnificent. However the plane ride was much more expensive and once was enough for us. The snorkeling from a float was arranged by the cruise ship and we probably do it again if we pass this way. The clear water, the underwater marine life and the body-temperature water made the whole experience very enjoyable. Swimming in the Great Barrier Reef also added the magic to the activity.

Bearing in mind the reef goes on for miles, this tiny part is amazing to see, we did a seaplane trip over the reef and it was truly magical
