Sunset Safaris takes you on the most amazing Great Barrier Reef experience ever created. Enjoy the world’s most exotic wildlife experience as we take you to the world’s Largest Reef, to see the world’s Largest Turtle Research Centre, and to swim with one of the world’s Largest Animals - the mighty HUMPBACK WHALE. Join us on the Great Barrier Reef where we will see migrating birds, turtles and coral, in a place that many would call “Nirvana.” Snorkelling, diving and deep-sea fishing is what this place is famous for, as we encounter colours and beauty unsurpassed anywhere in the world. You can even go for a swim with the turtles as they wait patiently at a cleaning station for the little fish to clean their bodies. The Southern Great Barrier Reef is known for its Stinger Free environment - allowing us to swim without worry all year.
Seasonal Animal Encounters:
- Turtles may be seen year round at Lady Musgrave Island
- November to March a Live Turtle Encounter is offered where you can see the turtles crawl onto the beach to lay their eggs or watch the hatchlings make their journey to the sea.
- April to October you can participate in an informative turtle experience at the Mon Repos Turtle Conservation Centre. The display is interactive and educational.
- June to November humpback whales may be seen, and if conditions are favorable a swim with the whales experience may be offered for an additional coast.
