Dreamtime Dive & Snorkel is a unique educational Great Barrier Reef experience incorporating the world's oldest living culture and the stories Traditional Owners have passed down over tens of thousands of years.

Indigenous rangers recount the Dreamtime stories of the Gimuy Walubara Yidinji, Gunggandji, Mandingalbay and Yirrganydji people to help you gain a deeper cultural understanding of this diverse ecosystem. The sea country of these four Traditional Owner groups stretches from port Douglas to the Frankland Islands and includes the two sites you visit.

Your day on the outer Great Barrier Reef has five hours of water activities split between two unique sites showcasing a variety of colourful corals and marine life. Snorkel and dive over stunning coral gardens where anemones, sea whips, clams and plate corals are home to clown fish, angel fish and bat fish. Large schools of giant trevally, red bass and sweetlip congregate between the bommies, while turtles, cuttlefish, rays and sharks are frequently seen.

Experience Co acknowledges the Traditional Owners of the Land and Sea on which our business operates on throughout Australia.
We pay our respects to Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander cultures and to Elders past, present and emerging.
