Super cool and funny presentation with a super nice and enthusiastic guy. I would recommend it to every single one who is going out to the reef and wants to know what they are looking at.

Well worth while if you want to learn about the reef, and what you might experience there when you go snorkelling or diving. Entertaining talk with lots of pictures and facts. It will make you want to take several trips to the Great Barrier Reef!...More

Thoroughly enjoyed our evening at Reef Teach. It's a must do if you're planning a Barrier Reef trip as you'll learn so much about the marine life in the area and the teams passion for their subject is really inspiring.

I am taking 4 of us (ages 10, 54, 57, and 76) in July to the area. None of us have ever snorkeled and I was told that Reef Teach is the place to go for lessons and other information about the GBR. Was I told correctly and, if so, do we need to make reservations? Thank you.
