Bait Reef, is east of the Whitsunday Islands on the Great Barrier Reef and is located west of Hook and Hardy Reefs. Bait Reef is one of the best locations on the Great Barrier Reef. Gary's Lagoon is well protected, making it a great site for snorkellers and beginner divers. The coral growth is excellent and the lagoon makes for easy diving with deeper water just outside the lagoon entrance. Gary's lagoon hosts all sorts of tropical marine life including large soft corals, hard corals, reef fish, turtles, wobbegongs and the occasional manta ray.
