Yes it was the best day on the Reef Friday 17 July twenty amid COVID-19 stresses.
We woke up early morning in Cairns cold wet air just how I remembered from my early years.
Sun came up but still chilly as ever.
Drove to the 10 hour park opposite the casino, no our destination is not the casinos.
Parked and payed the $18 for 10 hour’s parking amid our crazy early morning packing rush of our essentials.
Took ourselves to the boat for a 7:30 check in, greeted with a warm welcome compensating the cold morning air by the three day trip Boat staff.
Sat and relaxed for the trip out to the reef during which the staff instructed us on our schedule and safety.
We took the first dive around 10:30 am, omg I got salt water up my throat first up.
Soon figured out the snorkeling.
Wow just lost for words to describe how beautiful the reef is through a set of standard goggles.
Forget 4D theatre, nothing beats being right there in the cool water being it’s winter.
After an hour 30 it was time to move to the next dive spot 5 minutes away and scoff our gourmet sandwiches and lunch.
Then straight back into the water for another hour 30 of exploration of Australia’s best reefs.
After that time to head home with a nice snack and complimentary beer or wine.
The best day ever if you want something to reset.
