Tropical Coast Top Ten #1: Great Barrier Reef Holidays
From Mission Beach, The Birthplace of the Great Barrier Reef, cruise out to some of the closest reefs to the Queensland coast. There are high speed RIB rides, more casual island-hopping cruises and, when the tide is right, you can walk to the reef from Kurrimine Beach.
Reef Express is a snorkel tour company located on the Great Barrier Reef. They explore unspoiled reef sites less than 50 minutes from their departure points and you can enjoy an exciting ride to this magical wonder departing from the coast at Mission Beach.
Mission Beach Dunk Island Water Taxi offers transfers daily to one of Australia’s most beautiful tropical island destinations, Dunk Island. A short 10 minute ride in their fully enclosed 10 metre vessel, over azure waters of the Coral Sea and you can sink your feet into the sand and enjoy this remarkable island for the day.
Hooked Up Fishing Adventures at Mission Beach will get you hooked up - from reef fish to game fish and all species in between, their 40 years of experience will ensure you the fishing experience of a lifetime.
Their 26ft custom Sportfisher, the Spirit of Dunk, is decked out with the latest electronics to get you straight to where the fish are. They also have the latest dynamic positioning system which will put you precisely over that school of fish or that reef outcrop without anchoring.
Dunk Island is Australia’s most spectacular and breathtaking tropical rainforest island. The Indigenous people called this place Coonanglebah, "the island of peace and plenty". One visit and we think you might just want to call it tropical paradise.
