A helicopter flew us there (board short flight). This was a first for me, Alvar and Austine.
We flew to a big platform in the middle of the ocean, with everything you need to dive, snorkel, and discover the corals, even a semi-submersible, which was great for Austine who also had her share of “enorme(ous)” fish (one of her new words, she practiced everytime a fish passed by the window).
Alvar has been brave and snorkelled for the first time. He loved it so much, we had to force him out of the water, shivering with excitment, cold and tiredness.
The cruise back to Cairns was another great way to enjoy the amazing North-Eastern coast of Australia.
Next stop, Auckland, New-Zealand.
