    Itinerary
    This is a typical itinerary for this product

    Snorkel Hastings Reef, part of the Outer Great Barrier Reef.

    The outer reef is prefered by corals and marine animals as it is well away from the coast and the effect of the rivers and streams; out here on the very edge of the Pacific Ocean is where the corals thrive. Of course, with the healthy corals there are many dynamic and colourful marine animals like turtles, rays, sharks and many more.
