Snorkeling the Great Barrier Reef – Carnival Cruise Excursion.
This was another great excursion with Carnival. The weather the day we went was quite windy and the seas were very rough with a strong undertow. This made it very difficult to swim and a very exhausting time. We did get the opportunity to hold a brittle starfish and it was awesome! The weird currents made portions of the reef look oily and not clear. I can tell you that we were definitely ready to get back on the boat for some rum punch! It was fun but I do not think we would try this again at the same place. The island at the end was very relaxing with drinks and hammocks!
