On our third day we went scuba diving and snorkeling in the Great Barrier Reef. We boarded a cruise ship in the morning that took us out to the outer reef. At our first site, Bre and I went snorkeling and saw so many beautiful coral and fish. I even saw a small sting ray. It was so beautiful! Then at our next site, we went scuba diving, which seemed more scary than skydiving! After brief instructions, we put on all the gear, which weighs a ton when you are out of the water, and jumped in. We practiced breathing underwater for awhile, and then went exploring the reef. We got to feed fish and touch them and we saw a ton of nemos, or clown fish.
