The island walks and glass bottom boat tour is accessible, easy and comfortable to do with children, and we love getting the kids involved during the tour by creating opportunities for adventure, to take a closer look and explore textures, sights and sounds as we walk through the pristine coral cay that is Lady Musgrave Island.

For those a little older and more capable, give your children an immersive educational experience by participating in our Marine Biologist for a Day program. While you can still spend the day together as a family, your child will feel like a VIP as all of our staff go to extra lengths to ensure their learning and immersion experience is like nothing else!

Glass Bottom Boat 1 Lady Musgrave Experience Great Barrier Reef

The experience includes a 30-minute interactive and guided snorkel tour where your children will practise identification of reef animals and collect important data to be submitted to the Marine Park Management Authority. We invite you to sign up with one of our family pass add-ons and experience this with your kids, as we adapt the experience to any audience. There is no age limit.

Our calm sheltered lagoon is like a massive natural swimming pool, with crystal clear waters. The average depth is tide dependent, but is usually between six to eight metres, and you can see all the way to the sandy bottom as you snorkel along the edge of the pristine coral reef. With your kids, you can discover all of the corals, marine animals, including our resident marine turtles.

For those over the age of 12, we encourage you to try scuba diving for the first time. It is an incredible experience and our qualified staff will make you feel confident and comfortable breathing underwater – an experience you’ll never forget!
