Explore pristine coral reefs and learn about the world’s oldest living culture in Gunggandji Sea Country, Queensland with Dreamtime Dive + Snorkel.
Traditional custodians have passed down their Dreamtime stories over tens of thousands of years including fascinating stories about Australia’s most amazing marine life. The Gunggandji Sea Country experience gives travellers the unique opportunity to gain an insight into a diverse ecosystem on two premium outer reef sites from traditional landowners.
Milln, Flynn and Thetford Reef, located on Gunggandji Sea Country are home to some of the most idyllic snorkelling and diving on the Great Barrier Reef. Travellers can snorkel right off the boat, join a guided snorkel tour or even try an introductory scuba dive. These reefs are chosen for their superior coral quality, colour and overall diversity of reef life.
Located further off-shore away from coastal rivers and streams, outer reefs are found in clean coral sea water with higher coral densities and less sediment (sand) resulting in maximum water clarity in all weather conditions. The Outer Reef Wall is a renowned dive location by local dive enthusiasts and keen snorkelers and reaches depths of over 30 metres.
You'll be in good hands with the guides who have a special connection to the country, an insider's knowledge of the reef, and a passion for sustainable tourism and educational adventures. After visiting the reefs, enjoy a live demonstration of traditional dance, and didgeridoo performance on the land. Dreamtime is the only Great Barrier Reef cruise that allows guests to interact with original clap sticks, and fire poles.
