Dive & Sleep on the Reef

Scuba dive some of the most pristine and untouched dive sites full of marine life on the Great Barrier Reef with Lady Musgrave Experience. Join us onboard our purpose built diving vessel ‘Underworld’ as we access remote dive destinations on the outer reef of Lady Musgrave Island  and Fairfax Island. After a day of diving adventures, retreat back to Lady Musgrave HQ, our ‘sleep on the reef’ pontoon accommodation nestled in the calm waters of Lady Musgrave Lagoon for a three-course dinner prepared by our onboard Chef, with unbeatable views and a good night’s sleep in the underwater observatory or private glamping bed. Choose from a 2 or 3 day itinerary of unforgettable Great Barrier Reef diving adventures. These packages are available over Friday – Sunday.

We are in peak manta ray season from May to August on the Southern Great Barrier Reef! Encounter these majestic creatures up close as we visit the manta bommie. Listen out for whale song in the distance as humpback whales make their journey through the humpback highway from July to October. Spot the sought after resident mandarinfish in the lagoon or visit the turtle cleaning stations and watch our resident turtles get pampered as they clean their shells. Find out more about what you can expect to see on your next visit on our Nature’s Calendar.
