The GreatBarrierReef


Come explore one of Australia's seven wonders of the world.  Your journey starts from the southern most gateway of this magnificent reef, via Swain Reefs.  This paradise is less than five hours away from Sydney by plane.  You can enjoy the pleasures of reef fishing, diving, snorkelling, reef walking and shell collecting. 

We have spent our entire lives on this reef and know it better than anyone.  Don't settle for second best.
 

Fishing
An abundance and variety of sea life such as Red Emperor, Coral Trout, Reef Cod and Sweet Lip that you yourself hook.  All are filleted (some can be kept whole), packaged and snap frozen for your convenience.
 
 

Diving
With our marine creatures and aquatic life and the added bonus of crystal clear waters and vibrant contrasting colours of the coral reefs, you won't be disappointed with this type of trip.
