Paul Hunt & Tanya Brown met on their respective first trips to Lady Elliot Island in 2003. Tanya had heard many wild and wonderful tales of encounters at Lady Elliot Island, from her brothers Martin & Rex who have often frequented these waters over the last decade. So she decided to take the plunge and experience the wonders of the idyllic coral cay for herself! Paul was on a diving trip with his buddy Steve Behan, and luckily (as fate may have it) was driven further north than they had intended to go, due to rough weather.
Lady Elliot Island is a coral cay located at the southern tip of the World Heritage Listed Great Barrier Reef. Situated within a highly protected ’Green Zone’ the island is a sanctuary for over 1,200 species of marine life and is known for its abundance of manta rays, turtles, amazing array of spectacular marine life and unspoilt coral reef.
