Great barrier reef

Diving in the Great Barrier Reef (Great Barrier Reef), is an experience you will not forget. It is the largest coral reef in the world (about 2000 kilometers), and a true wonder of nature, and was declared a World Heritage Site in 1981. Located on the coast of Australia, specifically in the state of Queensland, the country's northwest. I dove a couple of times in Cairns, one of the most important cities in northern Australia, and it is one of the favorite destinations for scuba divers or fans of snorkelling. They can get your divers license (PADI) or, if you already have it you can hire an excursion dives. Normally the boat with divers sales early and you spend the day at sea, doing a dive or two. There are tours that take you to the paradise islands that are lost off the coast of Australia, in others they simply take you on the boat to a site especially suitable for diving. You can also do it in other cities such as Townsville or the Whitsundays islands. If you don't have a license PADI you can dive with a mask and snorkel, in many places you can see the coral and fish around with just submerging your head. Australians are so proud of the Great Barrier Reef which they say is the "largest living animal in the world" though this is not exactly true, It consists of hundreds of colorful corals and fish that grow only in those waters. This is an amazing site to be able to see, with a guided tour or even snorkeling by yourself, if you can you should take the time to enjoy it and see it.

We embark on a catamaran, the pasions...

We embark on a catamaran, the pasions of Paradise, and headed to the Great Barrier Reef. It is one of the best ways to approach to this natural phenomenon. The two hours it took to get to the Great Barrier dedicated to the sun and drink juices on the deck of the boat. The Great Barrier Reef (Great Barrier Reef) is the largest coral reef in the world. The reef is located in the Coral Sea, off the coast of Queensland. It extends over 2,300 kilometers and is the largest structure ever built by living creatures. Its area, larger than the British Isles, consists of nearly 3,000 individual reefs. No doubt this place is the biggest natural attraction in Australia. You can dive along the coral, or if you do not have the necessary experience to dive deep, you can perform that can enjoy snorkeling the coral well as the waters that bathe are very transparent. We snorkelled, ie dove with the tube and the glasses because we do not go diving or oxygen bottles. Anyway, it looked scary. All the fish and corals we had at our disposal. Occasionally we saw happen at 10 or 15 feet underwater divers to the diving, which frankly think we saw the same thing, because the barrier is so great that almost reaches the surface. After seeing hundreds of colorful fish and large groupers, we made the stop for lunch and then continue diving. In the afternoon we went to a mini-island beach, Michaelmass Cay where we had a glass of wine to take forces and continued to dive on the beach of the island.

La Gran Barrera de Coral (Great Barrier Reef) es el mayor arrecife de coral del mundo. El arrecife está situado en el Mar del Coral, frente a la costa de Queensland. Se extiende a lo largo de 2.300 kilómetros y constituye la mayor estructura jamás construida por seres vivos. Su superficie, mayor que todas las Islas Británicas, está compuesta por casi 3.000 arrecifes distintos.
Sin duda este lugar es la mayor atracción natural de Australia.
