Port of Creal Reef

Great Barrier Reef cruises sometimes feature a call at the little visited Creal Reef in the Whitsundays. It lies on the edge of the Continental Shelf and is one of the coral reefs that make up the GBR. Because Creal Reef is so rarely visited, it remains in excellent condition with an abundance of coral and shimmering tropical fish.
