We're planning a holiday by family in Brisbane and would like to take a trip to GBR for about 5 days. We'll be travelling by car.
First I need to know what time of the year is it clear viewing underwater
Then where would you suggest if the best places for snorkelling where you can see a lot (I have an 8yr old daughter who swims very well)
I see there are reefs all along the coast right up to Cairns and I see the tours are all from Cairns. Are there various places along the coast where one can access some good reefs?
Are all the reefs only accessible by boat?
Lastly, my son and I last scuba dived in 2010. How strict are the charters there. Would we need to do a refresher course?
