The Great Barrier Reef is seriously impressive – a technicolour mosaic of coral, hyperactive marine life and castaway atolls, tracing the Queensland coast for more than 2,300km.


The reef is a World Heritage–listed wonder, and an essential Australian travel experience – and the Whitsundays are right in the heart of it! Perfectly poised just off the central Queensland coast, access to the reef is easy here: step off the beach from your island resort and see what you can see or explore the mesmerising underwater world of the outer reef at our permanently moored pontoon – with snorkelling, scuba diving, heli-scenic flights and semi-submarine tours.

Departing either Airlie Beach, Hamilton Island or Daydream Island, spend a full day exploring the Great Barrier Reef Marine Park, the World Heritage-listed wonder off the Queensland coast. The journey here through the lush Whitsunday Islands will have you reaching for your camera – watch for migrating Humpback Whales between July and September – but underwater is really where the magic happens. Incredible numbers of bright tropical fish and more than 1,400 species of coral await.


Taking a cruise ship to take a day trip to the Great Barrier Reef at sea is the main way for guests to visit the Great Barrier Reef. Guests can control their own time at sea and focus on free activities. Whitsunday Cruises' one-day trip to the outer barrier reef Reef World allows you to take a luxury cruise ship to a man-made floating platform on the Great Barrier Reef , where you can swim, use snorkeling equipment for free, ride a semi-submarine for free, and go to the underwater observation room Visit and enjoy a buffet lunch and afternoon tea.

There are two offshore floating platforms (Reef World) located in two different coral reef areas. You'll visit one of them, but no matter which floating platform you go to, you can appreciate the wonder and beauty of the coral world . The high-end floating platforms have rest areas and a variety of exciting water sports. The floating platform also has tables and chairs under an awning, a deck for sunbathing, fresh water showers and changing rooms. You can also board an air-conditioned cruise ship at any time to feel the comfort and coolness in the cabin. There are endless ways to explore the coral world. You can watch it from the underwater observation deck, take a semi-submersible boat to explore the seabed, or snorkel like a fish and get up close and personal with the corals!


The underwater observation deck with a 360-degree panoramic view of the seabed is fascinating and you can linger there as much as you want. It also has informative posters and photos and names of various fish species. If you want to make your trip more exciting, we recommend a value-added package with exciting self-funded activities (not included in the ticket) like a 10-minute helicopter tour (about $160/person, book directly on the platform, limited space, first come first served), diving, seawalking, water jets, etc. We also provide an exclusive VIP treatment package for helicopters to fly directly to the outer reef platform (30 minutes one way). Please call us for any enquiries, we welcome you.
