Coral Spawn and Water Visibility - Great Barrier Reef

Does anyone have any reports or knowledge about the effect on water visibility due coral spawn on the Great Barrier Reef?

I am a new member hoping to be up the Whitsunday’s sailing next week and will be taking diving gear.

Last time I was there around this time of year the visibility at the Whitsunday’s was terrible and the odour due the scum on the inshore beaches was a bit ordinary. The only place worth diving was down around 1770’s and Lady Musgrave.

Thanks, Shane

Yep, can be just as you say. There is no guarantee it will be where you are going at the same time. This pic was in July this year
