Snorkel with thousands of tropical fish, relax on Whitehaven Beach and come face to face with the amazing underwater world of the Great Barrier Reef. 

This trip includes 3 nights accommodation and 3 action-packed days of adventure and exploration. With everything from activities to meals included, this trip combines all the East Coast’s most amazing attractions into one great tour.

Day 1: Airlie Beach

Arrive in the lush seaside town of Airlie Beach and settle into your chosen accommodation!

Today is free to explore at your leisure. Relax by the pool, wander the quaint streets, head down to the beach and visit the breathtaking Airlie Beach Lagoon.

Day 2: Great Barrier Reef

Your second day takes you into the heart of the Great Barrier Reef. Marvel at this spectacular Natural Wonder of the World as you enjoy a scenic cruise through the Whitsundays on your way out to the awesome floating pontoon.

From here, take to the sea and enjoy snorkelling through the tropical fish and stunning coral. Check out the amazing 360-degree panoramas from the relaxing deck or capture a fascinating insight into the colourful wonderland through the underwater viewing portal!

Adventure-seekers can even choose to fly across the famous Heart Reef on an optional heli trip or explore the bottom of the ocean on an incredible deep-sea dive.

A truly unforgettable day out, there's no better way to experience the spectacular Whitsundays than on an incredible high-speed catamaran. Board the Camira and cruise through the incredible islands at break-neck speed. You'll enjoy travelling in style on this all-inclusive adventure.

This sailing trip to the breathtakingly beautiful Whitehaven takes in the best of both worlds! Spend the afternoon exploring, relaxing, swimming and snorkelling in picture-perfect paradise before heading back to the mainland. Glide across the surface of the waves and use the wind to carry you to shore.
