As the largest living structure on the planet, the Great Barrier Reef is incredibly rich and diverse. Stretching 2300 kilometres, this natural icon is so large it can even be seen from outer space.
While it’s known mostly for its large maze of colourful reefs, its intricate architecture also provides a home for a huge number of plants and animals. The breathtaking array of marine creatures includes 600 types of soft and hard corals, more than 100 species of jellyfish, 3000 varieties of molluscs, 500 species of worms, 1625 types of fish, 133 varieties of sharks and rays, and more than 30 species of whales and dolphins.
You can stay on board for as long as you like or combine your charter with a few nights’ accommodation at a unique island resort.
Cruising around Queensland's Great Barrier Reef islands is ideal for a family vacation, an adventure holiday, a romantic getaway or a relaxing break.
Lizard Island is located 150 miles north of Cairns and 57 miles north east off the coast from Cooktown. The Island offers the natural beauty of the Great Barrier Reef, with 24 white sandy beaches. Snorkel direct from the boat or walk off the beach and into the most impressive sea life. Discover a garden of giant clams and the colorful marine life of Lizard Island's spectacular fringing coral reefs.
The Coral Sea marine region is a remote ocean ecosystem recognised for its unique physical, ecological and heritage values. The Coral Sea islands and associated reefs support critical nesting sites for the green turtle and a range of seabird species such as noddies, terns, boobies, frigatebirds and tropic birds.
The reefs are also renowned for the diverse range of predatory fish such as albacore, yellowfin and bigeye tuna, broadbill swordfish, marlin and sharks that regularly pass through them. The Coral Sea Commonwealth Marine Reserve protects the waters of the Coral Sea that fall within Australia's Exclusive Economic Zone.
Lying 110 kilometres north east of the northern Great Barrier Reef, Osprey Reef rewards the diver and snorkeller with 40m+ visibility and if the season’s right, the chance to see schooling hammerhead sharks, dogtooth tuna and other pelagic species.
This warm and shallow expanse of water is bordered by Queensland to the east with the Northern Territory to the west. With over 20 river systems draining into the pristine, mangrove lined shores of East Arnhemland and the Cape York Peninsula, creates an incredibly productive region for some of the best fishing in the world.
The dry season lasts from about April until November and is characterized by very dry southeast to east winds, generated by migratory winter high pressure systems to the south. The wet season lasts from December to March.
Fish from custom designed tenders, dine on the catch of the day, prepared by our world class Chef, and at the end of the day realx on the deck of Savannah while enjoying a beverage.

Rowley Shoals Marine Park lies 300 kilometres west of Broome. Made up of three coral atolls, with untouched coral gardens, amazing marine life and clear lagoons, it is a true watery wilderness.
Snorkelling and diving is out of this world where shallow lagoons harbour colourful coral, abundant marine life and even a ship wreck. Take a dive here and you’ll see untouched coral gardens, giant clams and other shellfish.
The fishing is outstanding! Throw in a line here and there’ll be no stories about the one that got away! Many species are protected so catch and release programs are enforced. The deep waters surrounding the Rowley Shoals are home to large populations of pelagic species such as sharks, marlin and sailfish, so it’s a good spot for experiencing the thrill of big game fishing.
