Itinerary


This 2-day, 1-night marine adventure is the perfect combination of relaxation and adventure.



Day 1: Airlie Beach, Hamilton Island or Daydream Island to the Whitsundays and the Outer Great Barrier Reef


The adventure gets off to an early start with pick up from the mainland at 8.00 am. Enjoy a stunning ride through the picturesque Whitsunday Islands on our way to the floating pontoon, your home for the next 2 days! Keep your cameras at the ready as you cruise through the spectacular Whitsunday Islands and onto the pontoon at the outer Great Barrier Reef.

Once here, the day is yours to explore the colourful underwater wonderland that awaits!  Expert guides will be on hand to explain more about the reef’s spectacular marine life and offer an impressive array of activities.

Dive into the turquoise waters and explore the reef to your heart’s content with snorkelling trips that give you a fascinating glimpse into the marine world. Or, stay onboard and check out the action through the amazing underwater viewing portal.

Experience the reef from above and below with optional deep sea dives and helicopter rides, offering you a breathtaking glimpse of the famous Heart Reef.

Soak up the sun and the sea breeze on the spectacular 360-degree panoramic deck and enjoy a relaxing massage as you float in the middle of the ocean.

Throughout the day, treat yourself to complimentary hot drinks and dig into a delicious morning, afternoon tea and lunch.

Then, as the day comes to an end, bask in the peace and quiet of the reef and make the most of a breathtaking afternoon in tropical paradise. Take in the spectacular sunset panoramas from the upper deck and watch the reef change as the darkness rolls in.

Enjoy the amazing views from the submerged viewing platform

As darkness falls, it's your chance to see the weird and wonderful marine world come to life.

Later, fall asleep on the deck, curled up in your swag beneath a canopy of stars.  A true once-in-a-lifetime experience, there really is nothing like experiencing the Great Barrier Reef at night.

 


Day 2: Explore the Outer Great Barrier Reef and return to Airlie Beach, Hamilton Island or Daydream Island


Rise with the sun and watch as the reef starts to come to life. Go for an early morning dip in the crystal clear water, tuck into a delicious hearty breakfast and enjoy the freedom of the reef all to yourself!

Mid-morning, day cruise guests will arrive and the fun begins all over again! Enjoy deep sea dives and snorkel tours through the colourful coral.

Sadly, this afternoon, your amazing 2-day reef exploration adventure has to come to an end. Say goodbye to the incredible Great Barrier Reef and before the journey back to the East Coast.
