Are the areas you go to affected by coral bleaching?

May 31st, 2018

All of the Great Barrier Reef has been impacted by coral bleaching over the last few years, any dive operators telling you otherwise are not being honest with their customers.

 

Fortunately, all our diving takes place on the outer reef, where the impact of coral bleaching has not been as destructive, and we still dive beautiful, healthy dive sites every day. We estimate that about 10% of the coral cover on the Agincourt reefs has been affected by the bleaching and have been heartened over the last 12 months to see new coral growth in many places.

 

Please contact us with further questions if you are hesitant to dive the Great Barrier Reef because of the coral bleaching. We are happy to answer your questions and provide you with the latest information.
