Glass Bottom Boat with Lady Musgrave Experience



Great Barrier Reef Glass Bottom Boat Tours

Learn more about what you might see.

Watch as hundreds of tropical fish pass under the clear center panel of Great Blue. Colour parrotfish can be seen munching on coral, bright yellow butterfly fish dancing with each other or a school of blue to green chromis shimmer in the sunlight. Travel over untouched parts of the reef outside the snorkel area as you search for the rich, velvet blue of a blue linckia starfish amongst the hard and soft corals. Try to spy a giant clam in between the reef and the hypnotic blue, purple, yellow, orange and green colours of the flesh tucked away in the safety of the clam’s mantle.

Be mesmerized as green and hawksbill turtles swim under the panel or come up for a breath of air next to the glass bottom boat. Our Glass Bottom Boat Skipper will take guests to a turtle cleaning station where you can watch and learn how turtles maintain such a clean carapace (turtle shell) in the Lady Musgrave lagoon.

As you approach the island for your guided island tour look down and see starfish and sea cucumbers as they play an important role in the lagoon as vacuum cleaners filter the bottom of the lagoon floor. Try find the iridescent blue dots that belong to the Blue spotted lagoon ray who are notorious for bathing in the warm, sheltered water edge around the island.

The Glass Bottom Boat tour is an experience suited for families, groups, partners and individuals.There is something for everyone to see as our staff share their stories, facts and passion for the reef.

Top tips - the departure point and parking is 100m past where google takes you. Marina toilets are closed before departure but the ship facilities are better than a plane. On the way out sit in the back right, back left when returning, as it is smoother and shadier. Overall had a great day, can recommend.
