Days 1-13: Our program begins in Sydney, often considered the most beautiful city of the Southern Hemisphere. We will be staying at the 5-star Four Seasons Hotel, located in the historic Rocks district and only a short walk from both the Opera House and the Harbor Bridge. This neighborhood also features a variety of shops, restaurants, and easy access to other areas of downtown Sydney. For our time in Sydney, we've arranged several group activities that focus on marine education including visits to the commercial fish market, the aquarium, and the Natural History Museum. We invite you to join us this November for a truly unique "immersion" into the politics, economics, research activities, and underwater beauty of Australia's Great Barrier Reef. Includes: (B), (L), (D).
- Skill Level: This program will be enjoyed by all snorkelers, from novice to expert. Your tour staff will gladly provide any needed snorkeling instruction, from floating to freediving. Whenever possible we will seek out protected water for our snorkeling excursions, but at times the surface may be choppy due to wind.
- Trip Limit: Australia's Great Barrier Reef program is limited to 20 participants, with a minimum of 12. Due to the limited space available for this tour, reservations for space will be accepted in the order deposits are received.
- Weather: Daytime temperatures in the areas we're visiting during our program range from the low 70's to the low 90's. Although we have selected this month because of low rainfall, in the tropices, there is always a chance of rain. Water temperature during this period ranges from the low 70's to the low 80's.
Price Includes: Domestic airfare in Australia.
