Great Barrier Reef

The day after the rainforest we headed out on an all day excursion to the Great Barrier Reef.  Cairns is the best place to go if you want to see the Great Barrier Reef.  We took a 90-minute boat ride out to the reef where they set up a floating vessel that accommodated snorkeling, scuba diving, semi-submersible submarines, and helicopter rides.  The whole family went snorkeling which was just awesome.

Yes I do....as I was flying over the Great Barrier Reef I said to myself, "Man, you're flying over the great barrier reef in Australia in a private helicopter....how cool is that?!"
