Highlights

  • Watch out for Wally, the friendly resident Maori Wrasse. He’s been known to conduct a personal tour of the reef and past passengers have said they’d come back just to meet Wally again.
  • Underwater digital cameras can be hired on board but take note that introductory divers aren’t permitted to take a camera down with them due to safety restrictions. They’ll have enough to focus on!

Perfect Selfie

  • Wally will happily join in a selfie or two, as will a few of the turtles.

Share your selfie on our Facebook page and tag your best Instagram pics with #barrierreefaustralia for your chance to be featured.
