Sailing Nandji – Fitzroy Reef, Lagoon living on the Great Barrier Reef

In this episode of Sailing Nandji, we reach a massive milestone for us and adventure out to Fitzroy Reef. Fitzroy Reef makes up part of the Southern Great Barrier Reef.

The lagoon oasis is roughly 40 nautical miles from land, in the middle of the ocean. There is a skinny natural entrance into the lagoon, via a tiny channel in the coral. Once inside Fitzroy Reef, the lagoon is calm and protected from the open ocean swell and wind. The depth is shallow enough to anchor and you are protected from the elements. An amazing place that blew us away.

The beauty of this paradise and the time we spent playing in the natural wonderland, left us with smiles ear to ear. Check it out!!
