Come face to face with majestic manta rays, marvel at the vibrant coral and experience the wonder of the world's most magnificent reef system.

There are a few dive sites located close to Daydream Island and are easily accessible from the shore, however the currents can quite strong depending on the time of year. The most popular dive sites off Daydream Island are Lover's Cove, Vaughan's and Staff Jetty. Guests can also snorkel right off the beach along the island's spectacular reef.
