Sailing Schooner To The Great Barrier Reef With Snorkel Or Dive Options
From the moment you step on board this 52' sailing schooner, you'll know you have made the right decision for your visit to the magnificent Great Barrier Reef. With a maximum of only 25 people on board, the attentive crew will ensure your safety and comfort. Starting off with coffee, tea, pastries and fresh fruit, the adventure begins. Get into the spirit by helping to hoist the sails or kick back and enjoy the ride. Your choice.

When booking, you will have the choice to snorkel, learn to scuba or perhaps if you are a certified diver, a one or two tank dive. This is the perfect opportunity to try something new! The professional instructors will help you feel at ease and provide all the essential equipment and information for a first time diver. Don't worry, the guide will be right by your side for the entire dive, ensuring a wonderful experience.

Your friendly staff will supply high quality snorkel equipment, buoyancy vests and wetsuits (if needed), along with snorkeling instructions for those who are new to this activity. Upon arrival at their private mooring at one of the best kept secrets on the Great Barrier Reef, it's time to slip into the water and prepare to be amazed by the incredible beauty of the life below. Marvel at the uniqueness of the coral. Wonder at the wide variety of sizes, shapes and colors of creatures such as the coral trout, batfish, spangled emperors, yellow-tailed fusiliers, the giant trevally, sea turtles and even the harmless black-tipped reef shark. You won't want to leave.

After a splendid time in the water, you'll re-board the boat for the sail to Green Island. Snorkeling can work up quite an appetite and a sumptuous buffet lunch awaits, complete with Tasmanian smoked salmon, prawns, chicken, salads and breads awaits, served up by your friendly crew.

Arrival at Green Island will be a lovely surprise. The tender will take you right to the shore of this 6,000 year old coral cay. Home to more than 120 species of birds and plants, Green island is the only coral cay in the Great Barrier Reef that contains a rainforest. You can choose to stroll around the island, snorkel a bit more or purchase one of the activities offered, such as a glass bottom boat ride or visit Marineland Melanesia.

Back on board, take a seat and put your feet up while your crew provides cheese, crackers, cake and a complimentary glass of wine. To ease you back to "the real world", your captain turns off the engines for a true sailing experience.
