Heron Island is the only Great Barrier Reef Resort located on a true coral cay. Meaning, you are quite literally surrounded by the reef, you can swim right from the beach to an endless garden of coral teeming with marine life.
Heron is world famous for its Great Barrier Reef scuba diving and snorkelling. The island’s proximity to the reef allows you to enjoy three different full dives a day.
There are more than 20 dive sites to explore; most of them are just fifteen minutes from the beach. ‘The Heron Bommie’ has been described by Jacques Cousteau as one of his top ten dive sites. Every dive is accompanied by a qualified dive guide and is watched over by a lookout and skipper fully certified in dive first aid. Aside from our night dives, our dives are easily within the ability and comfort zone of even the most novice diver.
