Great Barrier Reef

Had our day out on the Great Barrier Reef today, the fast catamaran visits three dive sites during the day with breakfast, lunch and afternoon tea served by an attentive crew.



Unfortunately for me I wasn't able to scuba dive, the meds I take banned me from that activity, no worries, the snorkeling was ace, we saw thousands of the reefs inhabitants large to tiny and plain to colourful. The Wrasse below was probably the largest fish we saw although we did see a reef shark while we were out of the water.

The day was great fun and would recommend if you ever find yourself down this way. The crew were excellent the food good and the ship fast, it takes just over an hour to get to the first dive site. Four hours of snorkeling is quite tiring though, I sat out the last session preferring to observe from the sun deck, there is a bar on board.
