Blue Spotted Stingray

The Great Barrier Reef is the largest and most pristine coral reef complex on earth, and people come to Australia from all over the world in order to experience this magnificent ecosystem. While the needs of individual visitors may vary, all have the common desire to maximize their enjoyment of the time they spend on the reef.

At TEVENE'I MARINE, we believe that enjoyment is linked to understanding. If you understand something about the Ecological Themes of the reef and the organisms that live there, this will greatly enhance your underwater observations and lead you to a deeper appreciation of the coral reef ecosystem as a whole. The staff at Tevene'i Marine are professional scientists that have conducted research on the Great Barrier Reef for many years, so we are able to provide the most up-to-date information on coral reef ecology to enhance your underwater experience.
