Full description
This combo tour features 2 separate day trips to the best locations in the Whitsunday Islands. Travel from Airlie Beach on both days of the tour. Day 1: Outer Great Barrier Reef Cruise and Pontoon (10 Hours) Enjoy morning tea as you pass by deserted Whitsunday islands, secluded bays and beaches en route to the outer Great Barrier Reef. The high-speed vessel features spacious lounges, full air-conditioning, huge outside view decks, and a duo of bars. Arrive at the spacious pontoon on the outer Great Barrier Reef where the water quality and diverse marine life is unrivaled. Meet hundreds of fish species and admire a variety of hard and soft coral. This makes for unbelievable snorkeling. Spend the time as you please: make use of the undercover seating and tables, sun decks to top up your tan, underwater chamber, semi-submersible boat, freshwater showers, and changing rooms. Indulge in a delicious tropical-style buffet lunch and drinks from the bar as you please (extra cost). The return journey back to Airlie is a beautiful end to the day. Day 2: Catamaran Sailing Adventure to Whitehaven, Hill Inlet Lookout, and Snorkeling (10 Hours) Sit on-board the spacious deck in the sun and enjoy refreshments and morning tea upon departure. Visit the famous and beautiful Whitehaven beach and feel the silica sand between your toes. Enjoy free time to walk the length of the beach, swim, explore or just laze in the sun. Experience a guided bush walk to the famous Hill Inlet lookout, one of the most photographed locations in Australia. Travel to an exclusive snorkeling location on the inner reef (location dependent on conditions and visibility). Glide past colorful coral gardens, hundreds of fish species, and perhaps even loggerhead turtles and stingrays. Tuck into a delicious BBQ lunch. Included refreshments and alcoholic beverages are served throughout the day from 11:00 AM. Enjoy afternoon tea before the thrill of sailing on the way home as you reminisce on your perfect day in paradise.

It was a wonderfully organized and managed excursion that did not seem to have as many people as there were. Staff were pleasant and attentive to our needs and the excursion had a number of different activities to occupy our time out on the reef.
