Heron Island Resort basic informations

If you're a nature lover, Heron Island really is a special place. It's a natural coral cay 89 kms off the coast of Queensland, so it's not just another resort near the Great Barrier Reef, it's the premier resort on the Great Barrier Reef. You don’t have to take any special boat trips to experience this wonder of the world. The reef, with a myriad of colourful coral and reef fish, is right here, at your fingertips, right off the beach.

In the crystal clear aquamarine waters surrounding the island, stunning coral gardens and sea creatures great and small flourish in abundance and colour. They make Heron Island an easy holiday choice for divers, swimmers, and people who love to snorkel. The resort also offers an array of activity options for those who like to relax, explore and laze on beaches far from crowds, with no reef “day-trippers” to spoil the peace and quiet.

    Heron Island Dive Center description

    Heron Island Dive Center basic informations

    The Heron Island Dive Shop offers a wide range of wetsuits for hire, from 5mm shorties for the warm summer months to 5mm full-length two-piece wetsuits for the colder months.

    In addition to wetsuits, the Dive Shop offers a good range of quality dive and snorkel gear for sale and hire.

    Dive Boats:

    Three fully equipped dive boats with capacities of up to 20 divers make diving from Heron Island a well-organised and comfortable experience. Our spacious dive boats also feature a full canopy cover for sun protection.

    Our boats make diving easy for divers of all levels, with giant stride entries and exit via wide ladders. Distances to the island’s dive sites are relatively short and all dives are conducted as single boat dives, so you can do as many or as few dives in a day as you please. Single dive trips are great for those who want to take advantage of the island's other activities and facilities, such as the Aqua Soul Spa.

    Dive sites of the day are chosen by the skipper for the best possible diving/snorkelling conditions. Every dive is accompanied by a qualified dive guide who will navigate the dive and help point out some of the more interesting critters on the reef. If you prefer to "do your own thing", this can be catered for, depending on your level of dive experience.

    Other Services:

    Heron Island dive staff are very knowledgeable in marine life, and the resort also has a library of marine animal identification books in the Marine Centre to help you get the most out of your dive.

    Heron Island is known the world over for its excellent Great Barrier Reef dive sites, coral gardens and pinnacles. So good is the diving that Jacques Cousteau – the world’s most famous undersea explorer of our time, listed Heron Bommie as one of his top 10 favourite dive sites.

    With a natural coral cay located directly on the reef, there are plenty of dive sites to explore, more than half of which are just minutes away from the jetty.

    The waters around Heron Island are teeming with reef fish, turtles, manta rays, reef sharks and an endless variety of marine invertebrates. Around 60% of the 1,500 species of fish and around 72% of the coral species found on the Great Barrier Reef call the waters around Heron Island home.

    Heron Island caters to all levels of marine enthusiasts from the novice snorkeller to experienced divers. The waters around the island are relatively shallow with an average depth of between 10 and 25 metres. Snorkellers can enjoy drifting over shallow reefs just meters from the shore.
