The Lady Elliot Island Great Barrier Reef day trip is the only one of its type in Australia. The visit allows you to view one of the most pristine sections of Australia’s Great Barrier Reef from the air as well as from above and below the water all in one day.
The day visit begins from the Gold Coast or Brisbane with a early pickup from your hotel. We take to the air with Seair for a scenic coastal flight to Lady Elliot Island, a true coral cay on the southern Great Barrier Reef, overflying Fraser Island.
Flights depart Hervey Bay and Bundaberg at approx 8:10am.
Once on the island you can take a guided tour on one of our glass bottom boats, snorkel amongst the most amazing coral formations and marine creatures, hand feed fish in the lagoon or take a guided reef walk with one of our knowledgeable guides.
Come face to face with turtles, colourful coral and schools of reef fish. The coral gardens surrounding the island are also a breeding and feeding area for the giant "kites of the reef" - manta rays. Many of our past guests have been fortunate to swim with these amazing creatures.
Hosted by our trained guides throughout the day, you will experience the best the reef has to offer before enjoying a delicious buffet lunch.
Our day visit departs from Lady Elliot for the Gold Coast or Brisbane at 2.15pm, arriving back at your hotel at approximately 5pm.
Day visit returns from Lady Elliot to Hervey Bay and Bundaberg at 4pm.
