Lady Musgrave Island is certainly one of the most beautiful coral cays and lagoons of the Great Barrier Reef. Its colourful underwater world is a haven for snorkeling and scuba divers. Even for those not so familiar with the aquatic environment, a trip with our glass bottom boat to the island itself is an unforgettable experience.
Lady Musgrave Island is located just 52m north of Bundaberg, and is the second southern most islands on the Great Barrier Reef. With The Spirit of 1770 you can cruise in sheer comfort aboard our new purpose built 22 meter Catamaran which provides an excellent ride in aircraft style seating on the main deck and upper decks. Our vessel is fully air-conditioned with forced fresh air vents for passenger comfort while traveling at sea.
Lady Musgrave Island & Lagoon is a true coral cay with an unspoiled island and unique coral lagoon on the Outer Great Barrier Reef. Lady Musgrave National Park is a tropical paradise abundant in Pisonia forests and bird life. The island is set on 3000 acres of living reef with a deep water coral lagoon which is unique to the entire Great Barrier Reef Region.
The Spirit of 1770 enters the calm waters of the coral lagoon to moor only 200 meters from the island. This provides a protected haven for all age groups to explore the wonders of a living reef eco-system and the colourful variety of marine life - all in one great day!
