We sailed into Cairns this morning arriving around 8:00 am. The skies looked pretty dark and the threat of storms looked pretty severe. There was a bit of sunshine after sunrise so I decided to go on my snorkeling adventure out on the Great Barrier Reef. Twenty of us headed out to the reef on a catamaran around 0845. The trip was about 2 hours to get to the reef and was it worth it…. The corals were simply amazing, such colors. The giant clams were incredible and I adored the blue starfish.... What an amazing day!
