A natural island, Heron Island is renowned for its birdlife, crystal clear waters and acres of brilliant coral with colourful marine life.

At Heron Island there are more than 20 different dive sites to explore. The waters are teeming with reef fish, turtles, mantas reef sharks and endless varieties of invertebrates.

Heron Island is known the world over for its excellent Great Barrier dive sites and fantastic coral gardens and pinnacles. So good is the diving that Jacques Cousteau listed the Heron Bommie as one of his top ten favourite dive sites.

Diving at Heron Island is relatively shallow, with an average depth of around 15 to 35 metres, and snorkellers can enjoy the shallow reefs that come up to within two or three metres of the surface in places.

The waters of the reef off Heron Island are home to around 60% of the 1,500 species of fish and around 72% of the coral species found in the Great Barrier Reef.

  1. I want to take some photos with a digital camera while scuba diving. I have heard that strobes are better to use. How do they work? Can you just buy a separate strobe and connect it to any underwater digital camera? Thanks..
