Norman Reef Survey
Great Barrier Reef and Coral Sea Expedition: Survey 21
Norman Reef is one of a few highly visited outer reefs located only a few miles from the continental shelf. One of the larger dive operators in the area has a pontoon and a submersible stationed permanently on the reef which can be visited by hundreds of people each day on either day boats or liveaboards. There is a good reason for all the visitors, the reef structure is varied and intereresting for both snorkelers and scuba divers, it's very healthy and home to a huge variety of marine life.
