  • This laid-back and friendly tour embarks on the type of unique destinations where it’s not uncommon to see some of the Great Barrier Reef’s rarer marine life; such as dolphins and reef sharks (little friendly ones, of course!)
  • Take the chance to snorkel and dive on this fantastic day trip!  Make sure you pre-book your introductory dive to avoid missing out.

Mission Beach is renowned as a truly stunning and picturesque coastal town. It’s comprised of 4 pristine bays, and today you’ll be leaving from the sublime Wongaling Beach. 

A short 10 minute ride later, you’ll arrive at the shores of Dunk Island, where your vessel awaits.

Once aboard, you’ll embark on exploring the famed Great Barrier Reef!

We will provide a sumptuous morning tea to indulge in, as your hospitable crew share a reef presentation and some snorkeling tips to enhance your experience.

We will have two different reef sites to explore today, both chosen for clear waters and quality coral.

You’ll likewise find both destinations rich with colourful marine life in the form of stunning reef fish, rays, and maybe even a sea-turtle!

Choose to snorkel, or even try your first dive among these coral kingdoms.

Lunch is a mouthwatering buffet affair cooked by an onboard chef!  

Then its onto your second reef destination promises some more extraordinary sights.

Dunk Island

Just 10 minutes from the picturesque village of Mission beach, you’ll reach the pristine shores of Dunk Island, where your vessel to the Great Barrier Reef awaits.

Indigenous Aboriginal people once named it ‘Coonanglebah’ which translates to ‘The Land of Peace and Plenty’. 

The sparkling bay of Dunk is a remarkable breeding ground for sea turtles, so keep your eye out on the ocean even as you’re cruising aboard the boat; these beautiful animals regularly pop up for air.  

Dunk Island, with its postcard-perfect scenery, is a great way to start your day.

Snorkelling among Marine Life

Your friendly and expert guides will share all you need to know about snorkelling on the Great Barrier Reef, along with a few tips to enrich that adventure.

You’ll be fitted with a mask, snorkel, and fins.  You’ll see the kind of astonishing formations and textures the Great Barrier Reef is famous for - stag forests, coral bommies and anemones.

You may be lcuky enough to spot  a sea-turtle sighting, sting-rays, or even a reef shark. 

However you will undoubtedly sight giant clams, starfish, and a huge variety of reef fish.

Introductory Scuba Dive on the Great Barrier Reef

On an introductory dive, you’ll learn all the skills you need from a qualified dive instructor.

For up to 30 minutes, you’ll explore the underwater world with an up close view of the colourful corals and tropical fish in a small group. 

Enjoy the feeling of weightlessness in the peace and quiet under the surface. 

You may be lucky enough to spot a sea-turtle pass close by or a large wrasse or black tip reef shark.
