Book This Trip
This trip is aboard Spirit of 1770, a 70 foot Catamaran with a maximum of 100 divers and a Dive Staff of 5. It is for 1 day, and allows 2 dives.
Departure is from 1770 Marina, Town of 1770 at 8:00 AM every day, return time 5:00 PM.
Lady Musgrave Island & Lagoon is a true coral cay with a pristine 1000 acre coral lagoon and is the largest coral-enlosed lagoon on the Great Barrier Reef, and is the second southern most Island on the Great Barrier Reef. The coral reef that surrounds the lagoon creates a huge calm water area thatís ideal for snorkeling and diving.
On this trip your dive boat will enter the lagoon through a channel in the reef, and anchor at large floating platform on the reef. That will be your base to explore the lagoon and the island.
There is great snorkeling and diving, as well as a glass bottomed boat tour, and guided island walks to choose from, so you can put together a pretty varied and memorable day, whether you are a certified diver or snorkeler. Certified divers get to do two dives: one on the outer wall of the circular reef that surrounds the island, one in the lagaoon enclosed by the reef.
Snorkelers can book an afternoon introductory scuba dive. That takes place in the calm protected waters of the inner lagoon, a perfect place for a first scuba dive!
