Sunset Safaris takes you on the most amazing Great Barrier Reef experience ever created. Enjoy the world’s most exotic wildlife experience as we take you to the world’s Largest Reef, to see the world’s Largest Turtle Research Centre, and to swim with one of the world’s Largest Animals - the mighty HUMPBACK WHALE. Join us on the Great Barrier Reef where we will see migrating birds, turtles and coral, in a place that many would call “Nirvana.” Snorkeling, diving and deep-sea fishing is what this place is famous for, as we encounter colours and beauty unsurpassed anywhere in the world. You can even go for a swim with the turtles as they wait patiently at a cleaning station for the little fish to clean their bodies. The Southern Great Barrier Reef is known for its Stinger Free environment - allowing us to swim without worry all year.

MON REPOS TURTLES
Live Turtle Encounter - November to March
Only Sunset Safaris offers the MON REPOS Live Turtle Encounter on the Great Barrier Reef. See nature at its wildest as migrating turtles crawl up the beach and lay eggs in the sand. From February, you will also see the baby hatchling turtles crawl out of the sand and make their way down to the beach. For many, this experience is one of the highlights in Australia and is guaranteed to leave lasting memories.
Off Season Turtle Centre - April to October
In the off season, Sunset Safaris offers an informative turtle experience at the Mon Repos Turtle Conservation Centre. Learn all about the life cycle of these magnificent creatures, and the conservation efforts that are being made for the protection of the endangered Loggerhead Turtle. This is an interactive display that is both educational and impressive.

Swim with the Whales
Swim with the WHALES Experience- June to November
ONLY Sunset Safaris offers a SWIM WITH THE WHALES* option as part of your Great Barrier Reef Experience. Encounter the majestic grace of the singing Humpback Whales as they curiously investigate our snorkelers hanging onto a line at close range. Our boat is the ONLY Swim with the Whales vessel on the Great Barrier Reef, offering our guests the absolute pinnacle of Great Barrier Reef Tourism. (Swim with the Whales is optional & attracts a small extra fee). For those not confident in going into the water with the whales, have no fear, as the WHALE WATCHING* from the boat is almost as spectacular. (*during whale season only)
