Lady Musgrave Experience

Lady Musgrave Experience is your premium day tour to Lady Musgrave Island.

When it comes to coral cays, they don’t get much more spectacular than Lady Musgrave Island.  The 14 hectare island is surrounded by nearly 1200 hectares of pristine Great Barrier Reef and the easiest way to soak up this section of the Southern Great Barrier Reef is with Lady Musgrave Experience.

It’s luxury all of the way on the full-day tour to Lady Musgrave Island with guests cruising from Bundaberg aboard the premier, purpose-built, 27-metre, high speed, three level luxury catamaran Main Event. A leisurely morning tea is served on the way out to the island.   

Once moored at Lady Musgrave’s protected calm-water lagoon, there’s around four and half hours to experience hundreds of species of marine life with snorkelling, glass bottom boat tour, guided island walk and optional diving.  


Expect to see turtles, manta rays and more than 1,200 fish species.  Everything you need for snorkelling is provided including premium quality masks, snorkels and fins.

Wetsuits are available in the cooler months.  Floatation vests and noodles are provided for those who just wish to float on the surface and let the fish come to them.

Landlubbers can experience the beauty of the reef and marine life on a glass bottom boat tour or taking a guided walk around the island.


Snorkelling off Main Event is easy, with guests using the custom-built platform to access the lagoon and there’s a snorkel guide in the water to lead the way through the reef and providing instruction and assistance as required.
