Great Barrier Reef
On our last day in Port Douglas and before traveling to Brisbane we went snorkeling at the Great Barrier Reef. We took a catamaran cruise out of Port Douglas to Low Island and snorkeled off the island. I rented a small underwater camera and though it was difficult to operate and did not keep its charge long (lesson learned: don't rent the cameras they have on the boat), we did manage to get some decent photos of the coral and the fish. I have not identified either fish or coral, but the snorkeling was one of the high points of the trip. Low Island is part of the inner reef and has not been seriously affected by the bleaching that is destroying much of the outer reef.
