This was a great start to our GBR trip practicing snorkeling from the beach was a good intro before we got to the main reef.

Great experience, though the choice of food available is not great if you are on a budget. Glass bottom boat is worth the time and snorkelling is good as well. Weather is good, not too hot. Very windy when time to leave tho

The beach was beautiful but don't expect to see lots of fish off the lifeguard area. We saw more off the beach near where the ships came in. Saw lots fish and did spot a sea turtle. You should definitely do the glass bottom boats...More

The coral reef has certainly been damaged and diminished and as my friend is not fond of any sea travel but wanted to see some of the reef this seemed like a reasonable cheaper option. She was disappointed to say the least as we went...More
