Situated 32 nautical miles from Seventeen Seventy is the spectacular 2,000 acre Lagoon of Fitzroy Reef. The only natural formed, all tidal entrance Lagoon on the Southern Great Barrier Reef, it boasts a diverse range of colourful and uniquely shaped corals.
Marine life that call Fitzroy Reef Lagoon home include Manta rays, Bullrays, Eagle Rays, the Lagoon ray with its iridescent blue spots and also the black blotched stingray, Dolphins (Bottlenose, common and spinner), Turtles (Loggerhead, Green and Hawksbill) and up to 1,000 different species of small colourful fish. Guests can see nearly one million individual fish while snorkelling the bombies of Fitzroy! Sharks (white and black tip reef sharks) majestically cruise through the Lagoon - totally uninterested in people - harmless.
