From Bundaberg: Barrier Reef & Lady Musgrave Island Day Tour

1. From Bundaberg: Barrier Reef & Lady Musgrave Island Day Tour

Visit Lady Musgrave Island in the Southern Great Barrier Reef on this boat trip from Burnett Heads. Enjoy drinks, lunch, access to warm showers, a glass-bottom boat tour, and more. Snorkel in the unique coral lagoon surrounding the island and enjoy a guided island walk. Taking off from Bundaberg Port Marina, enjoy morning tea as you head to Lady Musgrave HQ, a new advanced eco-certified pontoon with snorkel and dive platforms, an underwater observatory, and a licensed bar. As you explore the coral reef lagoon, get plenty of opportunities to encounter manta rays, reef sharks, stingrays, turtles, and hundreds of tropical fish swimming in these coral gardens. Hop in the water to swim or take advantage of the included snorkeling equipment. As an added perk, non-certified introductory dives and certified dives are available if you wish to dive deeper into the coral reef (costs not included). Non-swimmers will love the three-level pontoon, glass-bottom boat tour, and guided island walk to experience the coral reef and marine life all without getting wet. After working up an appetite, a buffet lunch is available on board at your leisure, and you can freshen up with a warm shower after your snorkel and dive. On the boat ride back to the marina, enjoy another cup of afternoon tea.

2. Bundaberg: Whale Watching Tour with Lunch

Depart from Bundaberg Port Marina on a large boat, sailing across the majestic Australian ocean. Enjoy a live commentary on board to learn interesting facts about the local whales and their behavior, as well as why the area was nicknamed the 'humpback highway'. Navigate along this unique site and look for the imposing humpback whales as they play around and swim around you. Move between the upper decks and fore decks to find the best viewing spot for you and, since you're bound to get hungry, have a light lunch on board.

Wonderful day exploring the island and Great Barrier Reef. The crew was great. They all took care of us throughout the day and made sure everything went well. I loved snorkeling and seeing the turtles and other colorful fish. The glass bottomed boat was a 1st for me and I loved it! Worth the drive down from Brisbane and the money! A lot of the passengers got seasick on the choppy boat ride home but that was the only downside to a wonderful day.

Service was great on the catamaran both ways but motion sickness was awful. The rear of the day was amazing and the lunch food was good, though my wife didn’t keep much of it down on the way back. The ship’s crew provided exceptional service.

Incredibly well planned, generous, friendly service minded staff and an experience to remember.

Great experience. Great snorkeling. Very beautiful reef. Snorkeling with turtles.

Loved snorkeling and going on the glass bottom boat to the island.
