Day 2: Northern Exposure - Whitsundays snorkelling adventure and Whitehaven Beach
Courtesy pick-up included for guests from local accommodations between 7:45am and 8:15am.
Get ready for an adrenaline-fuelled day exploring the pristine islands, inlets, bays and beaches of the Whitsundays! Ocean Rafting’s Northern Exposure tour will depart Coral Sea Marina at 8:45am.
Enjoy snorkelling around Hook Island at pristine locations such as Mantaray Bay, Maureen’s Cove and other specially selected Whitsundays snorkelling spots. The exact snorkel locations depend on the condition at sea – your knowledgeable skipper will determine the best snorkelling location on the day to ensure a memorable underwater experience. You will see an abundant range of corals and marine life such as life Humphead Maori Wrasse, loggerhead turtles, dolphins and whales (during the cooler months).
Whitehaven Beach is a massive 7 km in length! Choose to simply relax and bathe in the beautiful turquoise waters or bring along some beach toys and enjoy activities such as beach cricket, football or frisbee!
The swirling sand bars of Hill Inlet are the perfect place to relax and enjoy a tropical buffet lunch (optional). A guided bush walk to Hill Inlet lookout will provide panoramic views of the swirling sands below. If you look closely you can quite often see harmless stingrays and lemon sharks resting in the shallows.
It may be time to head home but the fun isn’t over yet! The Ocean Rafting boats will often weave and race against each other on the way home to finish the day off with some more of Ocean Rafting’s signature adrenaline-fuelled action!
Day 3: Great Barrier Reef Tour
Beyond the Whitsundays, your destination is Reefworld, our multilevel reef facility permanently moored 39 nautical miles from shore at spectacular Hardy Reef.
Snorkel, swim, dive and explore – an undersea encounter with this amazing ecosystem is unforgettable. Or if you’d rather stay dry, experience the reef from our underwater observatory or take a ride in a semi-submarine.
After a sumptuous buffet lunch, you’ll have more time to explore before you head back to shore with lifelong memories of this epic Australian icon.
