Panorama Great Barrier Reef Tour
4.5 hours approximately
Witness the finest the region has to offer in one day and enjoy the incredible land and seascapes of the World Heritage listed Whitsunday Islands National Park and the Great Barrier Reef Marine Park from both the air and on the surface. This tour includes snorkelling and coral viewing from our private semi-submersible at our very own reef location inside the calm waters of Hardy Lagoon. The vessel has an underwater viewing chamber, sun and shade deck areas, along with easy access into the water.
This adventure at the Great Barrier Reef Marine Park is followed with a relaxing one hour visit to Whitehaven Beach. Frequently voted as one of the world’s top ten beaches, this striking stretch of silica beach on Whitsunday Island National Park is the perfect location to enjoy a picnic lunch, explore and recline in the crystal clear waters with turtles and rays.
