No trip to the Great Barrier Reef is complete without a SCUBA Dive. Diving allows guests to completely immerse themselves in this world heritage marine environment. The Great Barrier Reef is world renowned for its amazing scuba diving locations. With colourful coral reefs and an abundance of marine creatures, the Great Barrier Reef stretches 2,300km in length! The Great Barrier Reef offers a range of diving sites suitable for all levels of experience. There’s a huge range of dive sites along the Great Barrier Reef that are calm, protected and shallow spots around the islands, perfect for beginners. There are also plenty of deeper sites on the outer reef, perfect for those with more experience. Just ask one of our friendly yacht crew aboard Spirit. Our charter yacht crew have lots of experience diving in these waters and know all the best places to explore. Spirit has everything needed to dive these beautiful waters, including full SCUBA gear and compressor. All that’s needed is a desire to explore and have fun!


For those that are hesitant about SCUBA Diving, snorkelling is another great way to explore the Great Barrier Reef. Snorkelling the Great Barrier Reef ranks high on the bucket list for many travellers. The water is warm and the surrounding underwater scenery is unlike anywhere else on the planet! The best part about snorkelling is that it’s dead easy and all it takes is a snorkel, mask and a pair of fins!


More and more people are beginning to discover the pleasure of stand up paddle boarding…. and there’s no better place to try it out than on the aquamarine waters of the Great Barrier Reef. Stand up paddle boarding is really easy to do, relaxing and also great for your core strength! Imagine gliding over calm, tropical waters while turtles and fish swim below. Our experienced crew are always keen to teach guests how to use SUP boards, so they’re experts in no time! The Great Barrier Reef offers plenty of protected areas where the water is calm and ideal for SUP boards!
