Great Barrier Reef Adventures (ex Port of Airlie)
When you first see the colour of the water of Hardy Reef, it will take your breath away – but dive below the tranquil surface and another world will greet you, teeming with bright tropical fish and more than 1,400 species of coral.
The ultimate full-day reef adventure, you’ll start by cruising through the Whitsunday Islands until you reach the pontoon at spectacular Hardy Reef. There, you will plunge right into the World Heritage-listed wonder where you can snorkel along the top of the reef platform (if tide allows) or follow the edge of the reef platform where all the best corals and fish can be seen. Climb aboard the semi-submersible vessel for a guided tour along the reef wall, all while staying dry! When you need a quiet moment to yourself make your way into the underwater observatory, where you can sit and watch the fish and snorkelers go by, or look beyond to the coral wall and watch the colours change as the light changes. When lunchtime comes around you'll enjoy a delicious buffet lunch onboard with fresh local prawns, a selection of cold meats and a fabulous array of salads to choose from. Use the rest of your afternoon to relax or take one last snorkel, and as your day fades into sunset you’ll leave with life long memories of the epically Australian icon. **INCLUSIONS** All snorkelling equipment & 100+ metres of snorkelling area to explore 4 hours at Hardy Reef **S**emi-submersible guided tour Underwater observatory Large, modern, well appointed vessel transfer to the Reef Buffet lunch, morning & afternoon tea **WHAT TO BRING** Swimwear and towel Sunscreen, hat and protective clothing Light jacket/sweater for a cool or windy day Camera to capture memories Money/credit card for optional purchases
