What you can expect

Lady Elliot Island is a jewel in the Southern Great Barrier Reef, famous for its incredible population of turtles, manta rays and pristine coral reef. Visit the island paradise for a one-of-a-kind day trip that begins with a spectacular scenic flight over the glistening waters of the Great Barrier Reef Marine Park.

Landing directly on the island, you’ll be mere footsteps from the shore. Hosts will welcome you with an island orientation tour before you set out on a glass bottom boat for a guided snorkelling adventure. Swim alongside turtles and watch tropical fish darting in and out of the coral gardens as you discover a magical underwater world.

A buffet lunch is served in the restaurant and the island’s guided activities or head out for another afternoon swim or snorkel before your return flight back to Agnes Waters/1770.
