Jack’s favourite dive site is one he experienced for the first time in 2015.

The Great Barrier Reef in Australia is Jack’s favourite dive site.  Leaving Port  Douglas in November sunshine, this boat dive took Jack exploring in 30 degree  water.  With depths of 25-30m and visibility of 40+ metres, Jack describes the  water as warm and crystal clear.


This dive saw Jack experience turtles, sharks, mauri wrasse, and giant clams, together with an abundance of coral of all types, shapes and sizes.
