“Beautiful”
Reviewed 11 December 2013

We saw sharks, sting rays and turtles and got to swim up close with these bad boys! Lots of birds on this little island but so beautiful and well worth a boat trip out to it

Share a secluded island in the middle of the Great Barrier Reef with the birds. Incredible snorkeling, or shallow diving. Accessible only by boat!!

“First impressions of the reef”
Reviewed 27 November 2013

This was my first experience snorkelling on the reef. The fish are abundant and one turtle got very curious. A 90 minute ride from Cairns and you're there. Excellent.

“Semi-submersible!”
Reviewed 7 November 2013

Don't miss the semi-submersible on Ocean Spirit Cruises. Dave the guide is great as is the food not to mention incredible underwater views of the GBF.
