Take part in a 3 km challenge around a 1 km course set over Moore Reef, 50 kms off the coast of Cairns, and take the time to simply cruise over the reef.
The Great Barrier Reef is designated one of the Seven Wonders of the Natural World and these swims are a unique opportunity to enjoy this phenomenon of a race above beautiful coral, sea life and the crystal clear near-transcendental aqua blue ocean.
Your day out will include all the opportunities to snorkel and scuba, but as a venue for a race – you will never forget it.
Included in your swim package:
This swim is spectacular – skirting the edges of a section of the barrier reef and offering prime viewing as you race.
The 3 km race will start first, separated into age groupings if necessary.
Timing is monitored by Masters Swimming Queensland, and all times and placings will be recorded.
