It's a Whitsunday must-do: a day trip to The Great Barrier Reef for a fun day off an amazing pontoon!
The Great Barrier Reef is one of the most spectacular natural wonders of the world, and a visit to The Whitsunday Islands wouldn’t be complete without a day trip to the reef. Make the most out of the world-famous tropical paradise with this full day tour out to the reef and embrace your sense of adventure.
You’ll cruise from the Whitsundays through the islands over the World Heritage-listed Great Barrier Reef on board a premier cruise vessel: a 37m wave-piercer fitted with motion stabilizers. Soak up the spectacular views as you travel towards a deluxe floating complex called ‘Heart Pontoon’. It’s a multi-level reef facility permanently moored about 70km away from the shore at the incredible Hardy Reef. This is where you’ll be spending the next four hours enjoying the reef!
There’s plenty to do: you can snorkel with all the gear (including wetsuits and stinger suits) provided, admire the colourful coral reef through the underwater observatory, take a semi-submarine guided tour, or opt for extras like guided snorkelling safaris, scuba diving and heli-scenic flights at your own expense.
There are sun decks, undercover seating and tables, freshwater showers, and access to the air-conditioned comfort of the boat if you need a reprieve. Plus you’ll be treated to a delicious lunch, morning and afternoon tea, and complimentary tea and coffee to keep you fueled up for your action-packed day.
In the afternoon you’ll enjoy the return scenic cruise back through the reef and Whitsunday Islands. After about nine hours of fun out on the water, this is a Great Barrier Reef full day adventure you’ll never forget!
