Great Barrier Reef
One of the 7 wonders of the world.
No trip to tropical Queensland would be complete without a snorkel or dive trip on the Great Barrier Reef.
TURTLE COVE BEACH RESORT recommends CALYPSO Dive and Snorkel, a gay-friendly operator in Port Douglas, for full day dive and snorkel trips. We send our guests out on regular days for extra fun, but these trips do run 7 days a week.
If you feel like something more intimate, Synergy II is a luxurious sailing vessel accommodating a maximum of 12 guests daily.
We can also recommend other operators, and will happily assist in arranging your tours for you to ensure your tropical vacation is as enjoyable as possible!. Check out our packages for those including Great Barrier Reef trips.

Our unique location is surrounded by National Park, World Heritage Rainforest & preserved coastline, and is absolute beachfront, as we live in harmony with the local fauna. Turtles swim daily at our private clothing-optional secluded beach. While most of our local animal visitors are harmless, it is best to observe without interfering with animals. Please advise staff of any wildlife sighting if you are concerned.
