This inspirational underwater tour explores the Indigenous ties to the Great Barrier Reef

Feb 19, 2019

The world’s largest coral reef has a spiritual history of equal reverence, and ocean explorers can now learn its Dreamtime stories—the Indigenous Australian mythology of the origin of the world—on a diving and snorkeling tour. Adventure group Experience Co’s Indigenous rangers tell the creation stories that were passed down to them from First Nation land and sea owners. Then you’ll embark on two outer-reef site visits, a glass-bottom boat tour, a marine biologist presentation and lunch. Optional certified dives and helicopter tours add extra magic to this tour that celebrates this wonder inside and out.
