The Enchanting Allure of Circumnavigating Lizard Island

And discover secluded beaches that can only be accessed by boat. Sadly some are covered in rubbish – as you’ll see in the video below.
Planning Your Circumnavigation Adventure
Before embarking on a circumnavigation, first you’ve got to get there.
Of course we travel on our 40 foot vessel Mood Swings, but in good weather you can get there in a smaller (7 metre) boat.
Delving into the Great Barrier Reef’s Wonders
Circumnavigating Lizard Island offers a gateway to one of the world’s most remarkable natural wonders—the Great Barrier Reef.
As you explore the surrounding waters, you’ll have the chance to snorkel or dive in vibrant coral gardens teeming with a kaleidoscope of marine life.
Encounter majestic manta rays, playful sea turtles, and an array of colorful fish species, including snorkelling with super friendly coral trout in the Watson’s bay green zone. On a previous trip we swam with a whale shark!
Capture awe-inspiring underwater moments as you explore the underwater paradise.
