What to Expect
Travel reference:

Enjoy an incredible full day experience with a Great Barrier Reef Adventure with Cruise Whitsundays!

Departing from Airlie Beach and collecting guests at Hamilton Island, you'll journey past spectacular islands en-route to the outer Great Barrier Reef. You will cruise in comfort aboard a high-speed catamaran, featuring spacious air-conditioned lounges, large outer viewing decks, bars serving refreshments and comfortable seating. And you won't go hungry, with morning and afternoon teas included, as well as a sumptuous buffet lunch.

Once at the reef, you'll board the interactive Hardy Reef Pontoon to spend the day exploring the colourful underwater world of magnificent corals, colourful fish and marine life. Your cruise includes all the snorkelling equipment you will require to explore the oceans without a guide. Plus, you'll have access to a semi-submersible vessel and an underwater viewing chamber. There are also entertaining presentations by reef experts on how you can continue to preserve and care for the world-famous Great Barrier Reef. You can also choose to upgrade to introductory or certified dives or take part in guided snorkelling tours.
