Details: Great Barrier Reef full-day excursion
As the world's largest living organism, the iconic Great Barrier Reef is the richest marine resource known to man. A UNESCO World Heritage Site with unique plants, fish, and coral representing a dazzling myriad of colors, the Reef is a dream visit for students who embrace science, art and nature. Set sail on a luxury 105 ft sailing catamaran for a smooth and comfortable journey to Michaelmas Cay, a low lying vegetated sand cay that is also a sanctuary for migratory seabirds. The Cay, with its calm, shallow waters, is ideal for first-timers and young families looking to experience the Reef in a safe, easy environment. With qualified crew on hand to supervise and buoyancy vests provided free of charge, students can effortlessly float as they snorkel and discover the world below. Take a Semi-submersible Coral Reef Viewing Tour, as well as walk the Cay for a most unique bird watching experience. With the onset of climate change and the clearly progressing decomposition of this delicate ecosystem, no time is better than now to experience perhaps the greatest natural wonder on earth.
