Frequently asked questions

Do I need to travel to Cairns to see the Great Barrier Reef?

No. The reef stretches from Cape York in North Queensland to Bundaberg in the south. Cairns in the only area that has an international airport so many visitors choose this location for convenience.

 

 

 

Is it safe for me to swim at The Great Barrier Reef?

Marine stingers are found in the warm tropical waters, but it is still okay to swim by wearing a ‘stinger suit’. These lycra suits are provided for a small fee on every reef cruise.

 

 

 

Can I touch the reef or take anything from it?

No. The reef is a world heritage listed natural wonder of the world. The wildlife are reliant on the coral for shelter and food. Heavy fines apply to those caught damaging the reef.

 

 

 

Can I go snorkelling or diving if I can't swim?

No. Even tour operators provide you with life vests, life rings, or floaties, but you will still need to be able to swim adequately on your own.

 

 

 

Will rain affect my tours?

Depending on what it is. It may not so much affect a tour in the water while you go snorkelling or diving, but it may affect certain day trips depending on how severe the weather patterns are shaping out to be.
