It was a beautiful day; we checked in at the Reef Fleet Terminal at the Great Adventures counter around 8am then made our way to the boat. Tea and coffee and breads were served as guests boarded. The trip out to the first reef site took about 90 minutes. When we arrived we got ourselves ready and snorkelled from the back of the boat.
If you are looking for special for dinner Ochre Restaurant is not to be missed. Specialising in Australia Modern Cuisine and concentrating their menu on local and native produce you will get an experience unlike any other.
This pontoon is a stable platform that sits on Agincourt Reef on a section of reef called Ribbon Reef, right out on the Continental shelf (the drop off!). The awesome thing with this day trip is it leaves at 10am… woo hoo! Sleep in! There wasn’t really a sleep in for me and for anyone else getting the shuttle service buses from Cairns which depart around 8am. This makes this an ideal reef option for anyone staying in Port Douglas, well in holiday mode and can’t deal with early mornings.
For someone who loves the quote “I love to cook with wine, sometimes I even put it in the food.” It seemed appropriate I started this blog with food & wine quotes! I love food. I love wine.

I joined the FOOD TRAIL TOURS last week to sample what’s on offer from our lovely Tablelands region.
I love the water, I must have been some kind of marine animal in a past life (water signs do feature in my horoscope). So when I go out to the Great Barrier Reef for a snorkel or dive, once I am in the water you can’t get me out. Most Australians live in coastal regions thus living by or close to water. We go nuts for water sports, boating, fishing, surfing, swimming… you name it, we get amongst it. Not everyone feels the same love of water as us Aussies do

I’M ON A BOAT……ON THE GREAT BARRIER REEF!
So I was feeling very special last Wednesday when I boarded the super swanky, new Australian built reef boat THE EVOLUTION. I really did want to break out my own personal version of Lonely Island’s, “I’m on a boat”!
