Mission Beach: Great Barrier Reef Snorkel or Dive Cruise

1. Mission Beach: Great Barrier Reef Snorkel or Dive Cruise

Experience a day on board 'Reef Goddess' to the Outer Great Barrier Reef. Begin your adventure at Clump Point Boat Ramp where you'll board MV Reef Goddess. After an introduction and safety briefing from your captain, depart Clump Point and head off to the East sitting on 17 knots reaching your first reef location in under 1 1/2 hours. In the water at the first Outer Great Barrier Reef location (locations are determined on the day to suit weather conditions), you'll have an hour exploring untouched reefs with the crew on hand to assist with your gear and getting going. A free snorkel briefing will cover what to do and what not to do to ensure your safety and enjoyment at the reef. Depart for a 1/2 hour cruise to the second snorkel location and lunch preparation. Arrive at the second location where your friendly crew will serve lunch with cold cuts, fresh prawns, salads, and fresh tropical fruit. After your well-earned lunch, jump in for another hour of learning, exploring, and experiencing one of the world's natural wonders. After more snorkeling or diving, your crew will 'up anchor' and head for home back to beautiful Mission Beach.

Fabulous! Boat, crew, weather, reef, snorkelling.......everything about this trip was worth every penny. We had perfect weather. The crew and skipper were brilliant. They explained everything and were very helpful with equipment and advice. The reef was incredible, so much colour and marine life it's hard to take it all in. Lots of snacks and tea and coffee all day. Lunch was delicious, and a g&t on the way back was just so laid back.......mmmmm! We would highly recommend this trip and hope you have the same experience that we had.

It was super fun to do! Unfortunately, we had the wind in the wrong direction, which made 90% of the participants seasick. The organization has helped us a lot with vomit bags. Fortunately, we were able to snorkel nicely and we saw fantastic things. Everyone was super helpful, super friendly, the food was fantastically prepared. Highly recommended!

The tour was wonderful. The team is super nice and funny. Two incredibly beautiful places were approached and there was enough time for snorkeling. Lunch was delicious. Muffins in the morning and fruit in the afternoon. It was a really great trip!

Such an amazing day on the water! All the staff were so friendly and helpful. Beautiful coral, thousands of fish and even saw a shark and a sting ray!

Scuba diving at the reef was beautiful the dive instructor was great.
