The 90 minutes presentation was really interesting, prepared us very well for our scuba dives in the Great Barrier Reef and Abby, the marine biologist, made it a lot of fun to listen. We highly recommend everybody to go here.

Educational, highly engaging and great fun. Gareth was great with a whole school group (18 students) even though they had flown in they night and were shattered! Highly recommended!

Thank you for your question. Reef Teach offers talks about the Marine Life on the Great Barrier Reef but not actually lessons on how to snorkel. However, our staff can give helpful hints during the evening. The show is a... More
