Snorkel or dive during your one day tour and immerse yourself into the beauty of the Great Barrier Reef. This tour is ideal for both introductory and intro divers, as well as for practiced snorkellers and beginners, making it an amazing way for anyone to see the Great Barrier Reef. You'll stop at two different locations based on the weather conditions, including 1770 reef, Split Bommie, Coral Gardens, Paradise Reef, Long Bommie, Pretty Patches and Turtle Bommie. Sea turtles are common and you are also likely to see giant trevally, small black tip reef sharks, bat fish and hundreds of species of colourful reef fish, while Paradise Reef is an exclusive mooring just for Passions so there are no crowds as you snorkel or dive on the outer Great Barrier Reef. It is a hard coral reef featuring a ribbon of small reefs. With depths of up to 25 metres along the edge, water clarity is good and the area is host to many exciting fish species including Wally, our resident Maori wrasse.
