The Great Barrier Reef is the world’s largest coral reef system, stretching for 2,300kms along the Queensland coast. On your tour you’ll meet an array of amazing animals through the floor of the boat and over the side, including several species of shark, huge sawfish, dozens of species of vibrant tropical fish and our rescue marine turtles - all beautiful creatures which are found on the Great Barrier Reef.

Along the way you’ll learn about coral, the effects of coral bleaching and how we can all protect the Reef and its creatures in our everyday life… there’s also plenty of time for questions about your favourite animals from our team of experts!
