See the beautiful Whitsunday Islands and Great Barrier Reef by seaplane and go snorkelling with this excellent value half day tour!
See the expanse of the World Heritage listed Whitsunday Islands National Park and the Great Barrier Reef Marine Park from both the air and on the water. Your pilot will provide you with informative commentary as you fly across the azure blue ocean and stunning reef. Take in the sights of Shute Harbour, Long Island, Daydream Island, the Whitsunday Passage; and fly over the famous Heart Reef, where you will be able to capture the perfect postcard picture.
After arriving at a private pontoon on the Great Barrier Reef, you will transfer to the semi-submersible vessel and explore Hardy Reef from below sea-level. In the calm waters, you'll have time to view the corals and marine life, enjoy snorkelling or float in the ocean, whilst using the comforts of the glass bottom boat as your base.
Your adventure at the Great Barrier Reef Marine Park is followed by a relaxing one hour visit to Whitehaven Beach. Here, you can enjoy a picnic lunch, explore and recline in the crystal clear waters with turtles and rays. On the return flight, you will get to take in more views of the Great Barrier Reef with a birds-eye view of the beautiful islands, beaches and surrounding reef system.
