Reef Eco Tours

Reef Eco Tours was developed by Doctor Andy Lewis, a graduate of the department of marine biology at James Cook University. Doctor Lewis and his staff provide safe and informative snorkelling excursions on the coral reefs of Magnetic Island and the Great Barrier Reef, with an emphasis on helping guests to discover more about the ecology of the tropical marine environment. Reef Eco Tours caters for advanced scuba divers, novice snorkellers, families and educational groups.
