Comments The Great Barrier has taken recent hits from storms and run off; reefs not impressive, but good amount of fish. Had Minke whales come up very close and provisions made to snorkel with them off lines in back of the boat. Dive staff was excellent; really went out of their way to help. Boat was in ok condition, food pretty bad. Did have Espresso machine!!!
