Experience the ultimate outer Great Barrier Reef trip with Cruise Whitsundays! Discover the underwater wonderland of magnificent corals, colourful fish and marine life.The Great Barrier Reef is truly one of the great wonders of the natural world and a “must-see” for any visitor to the region. Formed millions of years ago, this colourful living reef continues to grow and flourish just off the coast from the Whitsundays. Hundreds of different types of fish and hard and soft coral thrive in the sheltered lagoon.
Cruise Whitsundays have two pontoons at two different reef sites. The majority of our day cruises visit Hardy Reef, but if you’re booking large groups or visting on a cruise ship, we will usually take you to Knuckle Reef Lagoon. The pontoons have a choice of areas to relax and a great range of activities. There is undercover seating and tables, sun decks for topping up the tan, freshwater showers, change rooms and full access to the air conditioned comfort of our reef vessel. There are numerous ways to explore the reef, from the underwater viewing chamber, to the semi-submersible submarines, or snorkelling like a fish beneath the sea!
The pontoons are adjacent to coral walls, the length of which you can explore. The sites have their own ecosystem with magnificent corals and a diversity of marine life found only in sheltered areas, providing a unique world for you to explore. The prolific fish life will surprise and delight you – especially the giant groper!
Coach pick from Seabreeze Tourist Park (extra cost), returning you after a fabulous day.
Morning and afternoon tea and a sumptuous buffet lunch with coffee and tea all day, all included.
Scuba Diving and Reef Safari guided snorkelling are optional and can be arranged on the boat whist travelling out to the Reef.
Why not take advantage of a Heli-Scenics flight to see the iconic ‘Heart Reef’ and then relax with a soothing massage on the top deck.
