I'm doing the preliminary organisation for a trip for a group of approximately 10 ladies to the GBR in Sep/Oct 2015. It's for a 60th birthday, many of us want to tick the GBR off our bucket list. I think I have narrowed it down to one of these two islands. They are a very similar price once you consider the flight to LEI. We are not a party crowd, quiet chatty evenings with a bottle of red or two followed by days exploring the reef, snorkelling or by boat is what we're after. Most of the TA reviews for both are good. though fairly mixed, particularly for Heron.
I just wondered if anyone had experience of both, or wanted to throw something else in the mix.
