1. Mission Beach: Great Barrier Reef Snorkel or Dive Cruise
Begin your adventure to the Great Barrier Reef by boarding the Island Spirit between 8:30 AM and 9:00 AM. You will need to wear your swimmers to walk from the beach through water up to your knees. Take a quick 10-minute transfer to the beautiful Dunk Island and there you will board the MV Reef Goddess. At 9:30 AM, have an introduction and safety briefing from your captain, then depart Brammo Bay at Dunk Island and head off to the East at 16 knots. Reach your first reef location in under 1.5 hours. In the water at your first Outer Great Barrier Reef location, you will have 1 hour to explore the untouched reefs with your crew on hand to assist with your gear and get going. A snorkel or dive briefing will cover what to do and what not to do to ensure your safety and enjoyment at the reef as well as the protection of the reef. At 12:00 PM, depart the reef and take a 30-minute cruise to the second snorkel location. Here, the ship's captain will cook your BBQ lunch, which will be served alongside fresh prawns, salads, and fresh tropical fruit. After your well-earned lunch, begin your second of snorkel or dive exploration. After this snorkel or dive, your crew will up anchor and head for home back to Dunk Island.
