Great Barrier Reef – Lady Elliot Island

We spent today snorkeling at Lady Elliot Island, which is located at the southern edge of the Great Barrier Reef.

A shuttle bus picked us up around 6 a.m. to catch a charter flight to the island. Then we put on wetsuits and headed out for a glass bottom boat tour before jumping in for some snorkeling. Drew and I saw a black tipped coral shark, three turtles and tons of fish. Here are some pics:
