What's Best for the Adventerous on the Great Barrier Reef??
We are traveling to Australian & the great Barrier Reef on 12/2/08 on the Rhapsody of the Seas. Ports of call are: Hamilton, Cairns, Port Douglas, Willis and Brisbane. Any ideas for great tours or experiences?? We like to snorkel, but arn't scuba certified.
Opinions on booking through the ship or looking for tours on our own???
Sorry, I have never been there, but it sounds like fun.
The great barrier reef is a spectacular place to dive and snorkel. I would investigate which place is best for snorkeling at your level of capability and if it requires a boat I would go with a group to save money. If you can get to it from a beach I would think about just getting a taxi.
You have to play it by ear and do the research. Let US know so we can learn, too.
