Summer resort, the Great Barrier Reef, here is about the same as the sea and the beach.
Summer to Australia, the Great Barrier Reef is too comfortable! It is winter, the temperature of twenty-seven degrees, the beautiful sea and the beach. The Great Barrier Reef is the only life structure in the world that can be seen from outer space and is the first coral reef ecosystem to receive the title of World Heritage. The Great Barrier Reef covers an area of 350,000 square kilometers and stretches 2,300 kilometers along the Queensland coastline. For the Great Barrier Reef, the first choice is a boat trip.
How to choose a cruise ship
A lot of day cruises to the Great Barrier Reef, the pier is in Cairns and Port Douglas. There are mainly four cruise ships (four routes) to choose from
"Great Adventure": 1050 yuan
"Sun Lovers": 940 yuan
"Fantasy Reef": 1010 yuan
"Silver Shuttle": 998 yuan
all boats provide buffet lunch and drinking water. Hot tea and coffee are only available before the boat is opened, and there is only drinking water on the way to the boat. In general, the prices are similar, and the horizontal comparison is a better trip to the double-reef tour.
We are sitting on the Big Adventure Island Green Island and the Great Barrier Reef cruises, which stop at "Green Island" and "Norman Outer Reef". The former stays for 2 hours and the latter stays for 3 hours.
Australia's Great Barrier Reef is a coral reef area of more than 2,000 kilometers. It is located on the coast of northeast Queensland. There are more than 3,000 coral reefs, coral islands, sandbanks, etc. Because it is close to the equator, it has a tropical climate, so it is all year round. Can be launched. The Great Barrier Reef is now planned as the Great Barrier Reef National Park. It is the largest natural marine park and is listed as one of the seven natural landscapes in the world.
We chose the Big Island Green Island Day Tour. Green Island belongs to the Inner Barrier Reef of the Great Barrier Reef and is located in Cairns, Australia. There are also a lot of packages for the day trip. We chose the 142 AUD buffet lunch + semi-submarine tour package, which also includes a simple snorkeling equipment rental (mask + ankle), which requires a deposit of AUD 10 if you do not need snorkeling. If you don't want to snorkel, you can change to a glass boat.
The Great Barrier Reef, of course, must be helicopterd to see the wind. Helicopters have the advantage of being a window position and not blocking the organic wing. You can also open a small window and take photos. Similar trips include helicopters and sightseeing planes in addition to helicopters. What kind of package should I consider for myself? The price is different. I chose the product that flew back to the boat. More than 2,400 yuan. How long the helicopter did not fly, this sea is blue and intoxicating. When it reaches the coral reef area, it turns into a green like jade. The green island map 9 in the middle of the coral reef is our destination.
Green Island is known as the dive paradise, so come here and have to dive! The visibility of the green island seabed is at least 30 meters, and even up to 50 meters if it is particularly sunny. The clear blue water, the full fish and the soft corals everywhere, this kind of personal experience is not allowed by words and pictures, so there is a chance to try.
The underwater world is very quiet, no one is noisy, only your own breathing, and the sound of water. The buoyancy of the water makes your body feel less stressful and swaying. It can make you suddenly calm down, not bothering and not dry, as if you are coming to a slowing world, everything is slowly... slowly... slowly breathing, slowly swinging your legs, slowly watching The little fish that swims slowly from your side... The only thing you need to concentrate on is to feel this wonderful world with your heart~
Just 45 minutes across the Coral Sea by fast catamaran from Cairns, Green Island is a beautiful 6000 year old coral cay located within the Great Barrier Reef Marine Park. It takes only over one hour to walk around the Green Island. After arriving at Green Island by boat, you can take a stroll through the rainforest, or go diving or choose to take a glass bottom boat to see the colorful coral reefs under the sea. Water paragliding, helicopter tours and undersea walks are also popular.
