Underwater ID slates
Reef Teach underwater slates are a fantastic way to identify what you’re looking at out on the reef! They feature a plastic strap to attach to your wrist or your BCD and are available in English and Japanese. One features the common species of fish, and the other common marine life (corals and other animals) found on the Great Barrier Reef and throughout much of the Indo-Pacific (e.g. Thailand, Malaysia, Fiji, PNG, etc). They can be purchased singly for $7 per slate or $12 the pair, or wholesale (please contact us for pricing).
Reef Teach T-shirts
… make a fun souvenir. We have two comic designs, available in a range of sizes (S, M, L, XL, 2XL). Both have the wording ”Reef Teach, Cairns, Australia” on the front, with either a gun-slinging Triggerfish or a scalpel-wielding Surgeonfish on the back. The designs are in black printed on a good quality white 100% cotton T-shirt. At $20 they are excellent value for money.
We also sell a wide-range of marine-themed gifts, including reef posters, cuddly toys (including Nemo, Dory, Bruce, octopii, turtles, etc), sunglasses, postcards, glass art, re-usable bags, stickers, signs, magnets, paperweights, stinger suits, sunscreen, and ginger tablets (to prevent sea-sickness).
