Hamilton Island Daily Activity GuideSnorkel or Dive the Great Barrier Reef

Enjoy an incredible day out diving or snorkelling around Bait Reef Marine Park.

Offering tours from the experienced to absolute beginners, Bait Reef is a Special Management Area which means pristine coral structures, fantastic marine life and small group numbers.

With all equipment provided for diving and snorkelling, a full buffet lunch and light refreshments throughout the day, this is a tour you don’t want to miss.

Travel two hours on a purpose built motor vessel in comfort and style. Rated for 100, this high-speed 24m catamaran rarely takes more than 60 passengers ensuring a boutique and intimate experience on board and a less crowded environment out at the reef.

Once there, you will have a minimum of three and a half hours to snorkel or dive, swim and splash and generally indulge in water fun before returning to the dock at Hamilton Island.
