I had the great opportunity to dive the GBR 13 times last Septmber. I had a  
great time and saw incredible diversity among the corals. Their size was  
tremendous and state of health seemed very good with minimal bleaching.  
Mortality was extremely minimal, at least in the area where I was. The dive  
operator was Pro Dive in Cairns, Queensland where I found the staff to be  
very professional and conscientious. They cater to the experienced "scuba"  
diver as opposed to most of the operators who cater to the tourists and snorklers  
with little or no diving (let alone snorkling) experience at all. I  
recommend them highly. I hope this helps.
