Great Barrier Reef Ocean Swim Series
The Great Barrier Reef Ocean Swim Series (GBROSS) is operated in conjunction with Quicksilver – the biggest tour operator on the Barrier Reef. The 2022 swims take place from the Quicksilver pontoons located on Moore Reef – approximately 50 KMs off the Cairns coastline, around a 1500 metre course, marked out by buoys and following the Reef perimeters – to create the most beautiful swim view in the world….! Plus another stunner from Agincourt Reef – 70 Kms off Port Douglas – which will be a relay swim.
Swimmers are transferred out to the Reefs by the Quicksilver ferries, leaving Cairns at 8.30 am in the morning. The trip is approximately 1 – 1.5 hours, subject to route, and allows a full day out on the reef. Due to tide and weather considerations, timing are not precise until close to the event, but the Swims will commence approximately 30 mins after arrival on the pontoon, allowing time for warming up etc. Post swim there will be lunch, then opportunities to enjoy snorkelling, scuba if you choose, underwater viewing and the Semi Submarine.
This is a full day on the reef experience and all swimmers will receive extensive gift packs and full complimentary photography of the swim and options to purchase snorkelling and scuba shots later on.
