The past two days have been mind blowing out on the Great Barrier Reef. Don’t get me wrong it is always good, however the last two days have been some of those special days.
The weather conditions were beautiful and calm, with not a drop of rain in sight. The visibility was up around the 20m mark.
Over the past two days Reef Teach has visited Flynn, Theftford and MiIln Reef. The sightings have been so varied, from the smallest cleaner shrimps to the beautiful eagle ray “flying” overhead. Some of the highlights were watching an arrogation of sharks seemingly in a mating frenzy, a large group of tuna feeding, which looked like a high energy airplane acrobatic display and lastly the beautiful eagle ray that majestically flew over our heads.
Although these where the highlights one cannot forget the regulars, the very large and friendly Maori wrasse “Wally”, who was loving having his photo taken with all the divers and snorkelers. There was clownfish, blue spot lagoon rays and the very colourful and noisy parrotfish.
Although these past few days were above average, the Great Barrier Reef is a beautiful place to visit at any time if the year. If you are planning a visit to the Reef remember come and visit us at Reef Teach so that you can get the most out of your Trip. The experience is always enhanced if you know what to look for, where to find it and what it is. Do not take my word for it, read our comments on Trip Advisor.
I hope to see you all out on the reef one day and remember “With Learning Comes Appreciation”.
