Whitsundays Great Barrier Reef Adventure

Australia’s Great Barrier Reef is 2600 km long. Stretching along the east coast of Queensland from Lady Elliott Island to the Torres Strait. Our Whitsundays Great Barrier Reef Adventure will show you the best of the Whitsundays.

You will travel on a high-speed catamaran. The journey to and from the reef is all part of the experience. Passing spectacular islands and bays. At certain times of the year, you’ll have the chance to spot whales and other wildlife.

All-day, Fun Fun Fun!

Introductory and certified diving is available. The guided Seabob tours are also now at Heart Pontoon. These are safe, fun and easy to operate. The pontoons have a choice of areas to relax. There are undercover seating and tables, sun decks, freshwater showers, change rooms. You have full access to the air-conditioned comfort of our reef vessel.

There are numerous ways to explore the reef. From the underwater viewing chamber to the semi-submersible submarines. Or snorkel along the coral walls with its abundance of coral and fish life.
