26&27/5/12 GBR trip: the Great Barrier Reef cruise in the storm
The Great Barrier Reef / MASA
We had a rough trip to the Great Barrier Reef this time due to the strong wind. However, once got the dive sites, we were protected by thick coral reefs and the surface of water was acceptable for diving.

On the day like this, we recommend our guests diving rather than snorkeling as the deeper water will be less effected by the wind.

We spotted Hawksbill Seaturtle, Green Seaturtle, Whitetip Reefshark, Blue-spotted Stingray,Giant Trevally and a school of Batfish etc... they are usually seen much closer with rough sea.

As the visibility was low, we forcused on small marine creatures like Crownfish, Cardinalfish, Goby, Blenny, Nudibranch, Shrimps and Crabs.

Amphiprion percula/Clown anemonefish - shooting photo as close as possible not to be affected by muggy water.

Sphaeramia nematoptera/Pajama cardinalfish - domestically common around Michaelmas Cay, but not other reef near Cairns.

If you have booked a diving or snorkeling trip to the Great Barrier Reef and found out the weather of the day you going will be rough, don't become nervous! Many beginner divers and experienced divers have found fun under the water.
