  Go snorkeling!
by smoox

Don't miss the Great Barrier Reef! There is a cruise company in Cairns - Sunlover Cruises - that will take you on a day trip in their catamaran, the Sun Seeker. They will teach you to snorkel and to dive in order for you to see the wonders of the Reef - and if you don't want to touch water, they will take you down in their mini submarine. Great!
I'm not a fish, thus I have never cared much about snorkeling and diving. But those folks taught me, and I saw a fantastic undersea world. In fact, I couldn't stop - the cold I caught because of that stayed with me for the months after. Mind you, the Pacific Ocean is NOT a hot bathtub. NOT.

Directions: Cairns or Townsville
