|Why sail The Great Barrier Reef?
|Snorkel or dive? Both options are fine in the Whitsundays, snorkeling is no less exciting than diving, it is a completely different experience.The best snorkeling is in shallow water, approximately 1 meter above coral. You can use noodles to support you and whole idea is to do as little as possible. You float on surface and watch.
