Great Barrier Reef Day Cruise

From 1770 to Lady Musgrave Island and Coral Lagoon

Lady Musgrave Island and Lagoon is a true coral cay situated only 32 nautical miles from the town of 1770. Lady Musgrave National Park is a tropical paradise abundant in pisonia forests and bird life. The island is set on 3000 acres of living reef with a deepwater coral lagoon which is unique to the entire Great Barrier Reef Region. Our vessel enters the calm water of the lagoon and moors only 300 metres from the island. This provides a protected haven for all age groups to explore the wonders of a living reef eco-system and the colourful variety of marine life – all in one great day!
