We took a high-speed catamaran about 1.5 hours offshore of Cairns to snorkel on Opal Reef at three different sites.
We wore wetsuits, making it very difficult to dive down because we did not have weight belts. We enjoyed each site with its different types of soft and hard corals.
Cora used her underwater GoPro to take a number of still photos and a number of short videos. We found this part of the Great Barrier Reef to be in pretty good shape with only a few places where we saw bleached corals and there were quite a few small reef fish everywhere.
