Not enough can be said about the beauty and vastness of the Great Barrier Reef. At over 1,600 square miles, the reef is one of the Seven Natural Wonders of the World and is Earth’s largest single structure constructed exclusively by living organisms; it’s even visible from space! The reef draws tourists and snorkelers from all over the world by its great biodiversity and sheer spectacle. The reef rests off the coast of Queensland, Australia which makes for a quick boat ride before you can jump into the water and start exploring.     

The species of marine creatures which visit or live on the reef is nearly endless; numerous species of whales, porpoises, sea turtles, sharks, and stingrays are spotted at the reef frequently. Over 1,500 different species of fish are known to live on the reef as well as almost 1,000 coral species, meaning you will definitely need to bring a camera with you on your snorkeling adventure here.
