Once a year, when everything is just right on the reef; a few days after the November full moon, a few lucky divers can witness firsthand, one of the most incredible synchronized natural displays to be seen anywhere in the world. This coral spawning event transforms the ocean at night into a spectacular show, all created by the microscopic corals who over thousands of years, have reproduced in this fashion, slowly building the Great Barrier Reef as we know it today.
