SNORKELING AT THE GREAT BARRIER REEF

For my birthday I had booked a short trip up to Airlie Beach, Queensland and planned on spending one day of my trip snorkeling in the Great Barrier Reef. I have always been fascinated by the GBR and so I booked a full day cruise with a snorkel excursion departing from the Port of Airlie.  I couldn’t have been more excited to explore the famous and imposing reefs! In this post, I will show you what it was like, which fishes and other wildlife I encountered on this once in a lifetime adventure.
