Post 12: Snorkelling On the Barrier Reef … Atherton Tablelands

We went on a day trip with Reef Magic Cruises with several hundred other people to Moore Reef in a big catamaran. We moored for the day and the trip gave us masks,  fins, and snorkels to swim over beautiful coral reefs. We had to stay within a big area of floating white balls and a connecting rope They provided lunch for everyone. In the afternoon, Harriet and I and many other people went over beautiful coral reef areas in non-swimming activities in  Underwater Observatory, semi-submersible, and glass-bottom boat tours with interactive commentary. See the photos below.
