The Great Barrier Reef is truly one of the great wonders of the natural world and a `must-see` for any visitor to the region. Formed millions of years ago, this colourful living reef continues to grow and flourish just off the coast from the Whitsundays. Hundreds of different types of fish and hard and soft coral thrive in the sheltered lagoon.


Discover the underwater wonderland at one of the region's most acclaimed outer Great Barrier Reef sites. We have two pontoons at two different sites and you will visit one site on the day you travel. Our innovative reef pontoons feature a waterslide, interactive underwater viewing chamber, semi-submersible and a spacious sun-deck to lounge on. The colourful corals and abundance of marine life will blow you away as you enjoy sheltered snorkeling and diving all year round.
