Snorkelling and Diving is a great way to get up close and personal with the amazing marine life and explore the wonders of the Southern Great Barrier Reef.

Snorkelling on the reef surrounding Lady Elliot island is easily accessible straight off the beaches or book on to one of our daily glass bottom boat/guided snorkel tours or snorkel safaris.
