Cruise on board a high speed, luxury vessel to spectacular Hardy Reef, and the permanently moored pontoon. If you don’t want to get wet, explore the reef from the underwater viewing chamber and semi-submersibles or you can fully immerse yourself by snorkelling, swimming or even scuba diving (optional extra) with the thousands of fish. There are fresh water showers, children's swimming enclosures and a large open shaded sundeck area. Optional extras also include scenic helicopter flights, guided snorkelling tours and professional photography. Morning tea, afternoon tea and a buffet lunch are included.
There can be few more unique experiences than sleeping under the stars, 40 nautical miles from shore on the Great Barrier Reef! For a lucky few, you can sleep under the stars in one of our Reefbeds, or underwater in our Reefsuites as a once in a lifetime, breathtaking and memorable overnight experience. Reefsleep guests enjoy two full days and one special night on the Great Barrier Reef. Swim, snorkel and explore the reef by day, then watch the sunset over the reef while you sip champagne and see the reef really come to life in the darkness of the night. This isn’t a five star accommodation experience – it’s a five million star, once in a lifetime experience!
Picturesque Whitehaven Beach is one of the Whitsundays' premier natural attractions. Guests can swim in the crystal clear waters, walk along the pristine beach, take a guided walk to Chance Bay, join in a game of beach volleyball or just relax on the beach. Guests on the Full Day Whitehaven Beach cruise enjoy a walk up to the Hill Inlet and a beach BBQ.
