Myrmidon Reef Survey

Great Barrier Reef and Coral Sea Expedition: Survey 6
In Greek Mythology the Myrmidons were Achilles' fierce and loyal warriors. Perhaps it is the enduring and ancient nature of this reef that led to its name.

The reef itself is a Marine Park Green Zone so the area is protected from fishing, this means that there are plenty of large fish to dive with. The Green Zone however can't protect the area from rough weather, over the past 10 years this reef has been particularly affected by cyclone activity meaning reef structures are quite patchy in places.
