Cairns - Great Barrier Reef.
Trip Start Apr 01, 1990
88Trip End Aug 21, 2002
The tour boat aptly named "Passions of Paradise" is a very suitable boat for this type of tour, with a net out the front for exciting sunbaking, able to raise sails and fully equipted for diving. Heather doned tanks and took part in an introductory dive, unfortuantly Avan was not permitted to dive by the crew as he had recently had a cold. Heather reported having the most fantastic experience.
We were also shuttled to spend time on a coral sand Cay. The cays are essentially islands being born, with coral, rubble, shells and other reef debri lodging onto an existing reef
