What advice do they give you when it comes to swimming with sharks? I don't think I would feel very comfortable with that.

Nice shots by the way. Post more if you got 'em.

The closest I've gotten to diving a reef is reading reef studies that talked about their diving

Soo many awesome pics on this thread. I was fortunate enough to dive the Great Barrier Reef for a full week on a liveaboard dive boat about ten years ago. Been diving for 20 years and that was the best diving of my life!

Nothing is as good as these but if you are ever in Aruba check out Mike's reef. The boat Tranquillo will take you there.

heading to GBR in a couple months, I will only be snorkeling and will be traveling between townsville and a little north of cairn. I would love any suggestions of must see spots or great snorkeling locations.
