Join Cruise Whitsundays for a day on the Great Barrier Reef from Airlie beach aboard a luxury catamaran!

The Great Barrier Reef is one of nature’s biggest accomplishments, and what better way to take it all in than sailing on a high speed catamaran with spacious air-conditioned lounges, huge viewing decks, catered refreshments and comfortable seating. At various times of the year you can sight whales among other wild life.

Relax as you cruise to one of two pontoons at different reef sites. Work on your tan, chill out undercover or explore the reef from the underwater viewing chamber, the semi-submersible submarines, or get in the water with your snorkel and up close to the stunning marine life. Explore the unique world of the coral walls, study the amazing fish varieties and be delighted by the giant groper!

Included in your cruise is your buffet lunch, morning and afternoon tea, and tea and coffee during the day. Our vessels are catered by award-winning Airlie Beach restaurants, supplying a banquet of tropical cuisine and seasonal delights. A bar is available on board for purchasing cold refreshments.

Snorkeling na Wielkiej Rafie

Impreza przygotowana w bardzo profesjonalny sposób. Warto skorzystać z oferty całodziennego rejsu na rafę.

Best Experience Ever

A spontaneous road trip put me in Airlie Beach for a weekend. This cruise was so fantastic! I loved every minute and took advantage of the introductory scuba dive - which I loved. My only recommendation world be, if your a picky eater or 'real' coffee love, make sure you take a few snacks/a cup of coffee with you in the boat :)

Disappointing

-snorkelling spot is really average, corals are bleached -3hrs by boat to go to the snorkelling spot -60% of passengers were sick vomiting this morning on the boat, it was chaos - staff is really pushy to sell things: rent a gopro, an helicopter ride, pictures, scuba diving, it is non stop during the cruise - it is not premium, it is mass tourism - 2 toilets for 90 passengers
