Snorkelling at Great Barrier Reef


Underwater viewing chamber Knuckle Reef Lagoon


Acclaimed as one of Queensland’s most spectacular Great Barrier Reef sites, Knuckle Reef Lagoon is an amazing place to discover what lies beneath the ocean.

Formed millions of years ago, this colourful living reef continues to grow and flourish just off the coast from the Whitsundays. More than 200 different types of fish and 150 types of hard and soft coral thrive in the sheltered lagoon, giving this part of the reef a higher concentration and greater diversity of coral than any other commercial site in Queensland.

The bright colours and amusing antics of anemone, parrotfish, turtles and reef sharks captivate all who explore Knuckle Reef.

Cruise Whitsundays is an Advanced Eco Certified tourism operator, dedicated to the protection of the Great Barrier Reef. Find out more about how Cruise Whitsundays cares for Knuckle Reef Lagoon.
