Location

A day trip to the Great Barrier Reef should be on everyones to do list when travelling around Australia! This incredible natural wonder can even be seen from space!

Jump on board with the crew of Mission Beach Dive to discover this epic reef system and explore more of what calls this part of the ocean home.

Swim alongside turtles, find Nemo and marvel at the beautiful coral gardens – they don’t call the Great Barrier Reef Great for no reason!

Departing from Mission Beach (also famed for it’s incredible skydiving!) you’ll cruise out to the Barrier Reef on board Reef Goddess – a stunning vessel kitted out for comfort and ocean based fun.

With 3 options to choose from there’s something for everyone. Choose to snorkel for the most budget friendly way to see the reef or for those who are keen scuba divers opt for the certified dive option and you’ll be guided around the depths of two amazing dive sites.

If you’ve never tried scuba diving before this is also the perfect excuse to give it a go and the introductory scuba dive option is the best way to give it a try. You’ll be taught all the basics by a PADI certified instructor who will show you around the reef and give you a taste of what life underwater is like!
