We loved our first visit to the GBR thanks to wavelength. We had a full day with three snorkel stops and they were all beautiful. The fish were abundant and the coral was exquisite. The ride out is a bit choppy but you can buy...More

This was an unforgettable day at the reef. Not only did I feel completely safe, and had the best of three different reef experiences, I left this day with a much deeper understanding of the reef, it’s health and it’s majesty. This company and its...More

We did the full-day snorkel on the smaller boat. We saw humpback whales, turtles, rays, and of course heaps of fish. Being on the smaller boat with only 30 guests allowed us to do a drift snorkel which was very cool. Glad we picked this...More

We selected Wavelength because it is snorkeling only and the boat is relatively small and we were not disappointed. We had a great day on the reef with the friendly and professional crew. On our way to and from the reef we enjoyed the informative...More

The outer reef tour IMO is not the trip with an infant or small child. The trip to the closer island may work as it is only 30 min. by boat and you have access to land. The outer reef trips there is no land--only the boat... More
