Discover the Great Barrier Reef on our liveaboard snorkel tour
Imagine a gentle breeze moving over crystal clear water out in the Pacific Ocean. Indulge in the temperate weather as a ship glides gracefully through this serene and gorgeous nautical landscape.
While many travelers choose to snorkel when they visit Australia and the Great Barrier Reef, it can be a much more thrilling adventure to take a boat out to the lesser known parts of the reefs that hold the most amazing natural wonders. Take a few days to explore the area by ship and live aboard with others to have incredible, up close encounters with marine life.
Learning and mastering snorkeling
Snorkeling is an easy and simple way to experience the Great Barrier Reef. Swimmers use masks and fins to float along the water’s surface (occasionally holding their breath to dive down) to get a clear view of the ocean below.
Those who live aboard a reef ship will have the chance to smile with the stingrays, swim with seahorses, smile at the turtles and so much more. There are thousands of animals who call the reefs home year-round, from fish and reptiles to sea mammals and crustaceans. Do not miss the intricate coral and rock formations either – these natural environment provide a colourful and scenic haven for the creatures to dwell in, well protected by local government and marine biologists eager to keep the Great Barrier Reef thriving.
A perfect ship to stay on
