Reader Reviews:

Dive Site: Three Sisters

Location: Flynn Reef, Cairns

Description: Reef

Depth: 16 - 27 metres (52 - 89 feet)

Visibility: 25 metres (80 feet)

Rating: ****

As we dropped in from the boat we were met with the sight of an awesome blue lagoon underneath us. As we headed over to the Three Sisters I saw a metre long white-tip in the sand that I got within a few metres of it. Next up we came across a turtle. Out in the blue were barracuda, tuna and trevally and on the reef were blue spotted rays, damselfish and butterflyfish set against a back drop of soft coral and gorgonian fans. A lovely dive.

I dived this site as second dive on a trip to the Great Barrier Reef. As already stated by Rik, a lovely dive. We entered from the dive boat and after just a few minutes found our first white tip reef shark, felt totally exhilarated to manage to get so close, he/she didn't seem to take a lot of notice of us. Plenty of other marine life especially clown fish by the bucket full. This is a really easy dive with some stunning scenery, the only downfall is that our dive boat was massive and not only were there about 20 divers but also about 50 snorkelers which made exiting the water very time consuming. All in all well worth the effort.
