Guide to the Great Barrier Reef

A labyrinth of unsurpassed natural beauty

Warm cobalt waters swirl with a tornado of colour and life in the vast expanse of the world’s largest coral reef. Lying in the Pacific Ocean like a submerged Garden of Eden, the Great Barrier Reef’s mesmerising natural beauty is unsurpassed.

Justifiably one of the natural wonders of the world, the Great Barrier Reef is home to a kaleidoscope of astounding marine life whilst above the water hundreds of spectacular islands sprawl out like a scattering of exotic jewels. It stretches for more than 1,250 miles along the Queensland coast, from Cape York in the north to as far south as Bundaberg, and is sprinkled with more than 600 idyllic islands. This glorious chain of coral, rainforest and lush island landscapes is one of the world’s most exciting yacht charter destinations and is perfect for those with a yearning to explore beyond the more predictable cruising grounds.

World-renowned for its dive sites and wonderful underwater worlds, the sheer size of the Reef offers a variety of diving opportunities for varying experiences. From calm, shallow spots close to the island shores perfect for beginners and snorkeling to deeper dive sites in the outer reefs with breath-taking drop-offs and shipwrecks that haunt the depths, there is every excuse to dive in and explore. Sharing the deep blue is a wide spectrum of marine life including whales, dolphins, sea turtles, sharks and endless tropical species of fish, creating truly unforgettable diving experiences.

Island hopping between the myriad of islands boasting exquisite white ribbons of beach, lagoons and coral cays is best experienced from the luxury of your charter yacht, with the nearby Whitsunday Islands offering even more spectacular cruising grounds. For something extra-special, take a seaplane or helicopter flight out over the Great Barrier Reef and marvel at the astonishing aerial views.
