If you are one of those people who are happiest in the water, watching brightly coloured marine life swimming busily about, then you are going to love our snorkelling packages.
Non-stop aquatic action, the best part is that you can snorkel as much as you like, so some of your days can be exploring the reef, and some of it can be working on your tan, or all of it can be snorkelling.
Included in your Great Barrier Reef snorkelling tour will be a mask, snorkel and fins. Snorkel noodles are also available to help you float easily. Wearing a wetsuit will also help make you buoyant and keep you warm.

Great Barrier Reef Marine Park
The Great Barrier Reef Marine Park Authority manage the Great Barrier Reef marine park to ensure that is it protected for the future.
Green Zones introduced over the past 40 years. Green Zones mean they are no-take zones, no fishing. It was a fantastic measure resulting in not only more fish but also bigger fish.
Visitors can see the benefits of the Green Zones. More marine life and larger fish are just a couple of the positive changes.
Science shows reefs in Green Zones recover up to 20% faster than adjacent reefs outside Green Zones (information from the Great Barrier Reef Marine Park Authority website.)
