Day Reef Survey
Great Barrier Reef and Coral Sea Expedition: Survey 14
Day Reef is located 2 reefs north of Yonge Reef which we surveyed earlier on this expedition. We've asked around and still can't be sure how Day Reef got its name, one guess is that as this reef is only 10 nautical miles from popular Lizard Island it's a good day trip for divers.
The reef is a no go zone for fisherman, it's protected as a GBRMPA Green Zone and it was great to find some large pelagic fish on the exposed side of this reef.
