Lady Elliot Island, Australia Snorkeling Trip February 2018
Lady Elliot Island Triggerfish
In February 2018 I spent five nights on the small but beautiful Lady Elliot Island, in the Great Barrier Reef, Australia for a snorkeling trip. It's located at the very south of the reef, only accessible by light plane from Hervey Bay.
Accommodations are very basic but you are on an island, only steps from a beautiful lagoon full of marine life. I spent hours snorkeling, and saw marine turtles, all kinds of fish and other sea creatures. I was there during turtle breeding season, and saw mother turtles making their way up the sand to lay eggs. And babies emerging from their nests to dash to the sea!
Five days was not enough and I hope to return. I would highly recommend a visit here if you love nature, and especially, snorkeling.
