Lizard Island – On The Far North Great Barrier Reef
Beautiful Lizard Island was discovered by Captain Cook in 1770, and is now home to the world famous hide out for celebrities the Lizard Island Resort.
Guests may partake in a guided hike to the highest point of the island, known as Cook’s Look, where the mariner attempted to find a path through the maze of beautiful, but deadly coral reefs in 1770.
The well reported Blue Lagoon is where we will have a snorkel adventure among the legions of colorful tropical fish and view the giant clam gardens near the beach.
Keep your eyes open for the manta rays that visit Anchor Bay as they are simply spectacular to watch as they perform underwater ballet.
Other activities include walking along the island’s powdery white-sand beaches, or hiking up to Chinaman’s Ridge, searching for goannas (Australian monitor lizards) and a multitude of birds, such as sunbirds, honeyeaters, pheasant coucals, and a variety of terns along the way.
Cod Hole – Great Barrier Reef
Possibly the most well-known dive and snorkel site in the world can be found roughly 96 kilometres north of Cairns, at the Cod Hole. Part of the string of long narrow Ribbon Reefs, the Cod Hole is home to a group of very friendly potato cod, reaching up to 100 kilograms, that have become accustomed to snorkellers over the past 30 years. The giant fish approach quite closely, and can be hand fed at the site. Many other large and small reef fish populate this site, and during the winter months you may even be photobombed by a dwarf minke whale – they have been known to linger around for encounters with snorkelers for many hours.
Dwarf Minke Whales Off Port Douglas
Each year these graceful creatures migrate to the stretch of reefs south of Lizard Island, known as the Ribbon Reefs. The inquisitive nature of the Dwarf Minke Whale brings them close to boats in the region to linger with snorkelers, at times as close to only a metre away. The whales are mostly encountered alone or in family groups of two or three, but can be in groups of up to eight during the months of June to July. Should you wish to have an encounter with these inquisitive mammals with a marine expert on board just ask our superyacht charter specialists for some information.
On all our YOTSPACE superyacht voyages and luxury yacht charters the Captain and crew source as much fresh produce locally to support the people and places the luxury charter yachts are fortunate enough to visit. This ensures your food is less travelled and there is less wastage on our superyacht voyages. Our superyacht Captains are environmentally conscious of their yachting impacts and maintain structured policies to ensure they leave our destinations with what they came with.
