  • Bait Reefis about 2 – 3 hours beyond the Whitsunday Islands and provides a picturesque journey, with an unbroken horizon and beautiful blue waters.  It is the choice Outer Reef destination in the Whitsundays.

The natural lagoon provides a safe haven for overnight mooring and is an eden for snorkelling and scuba diving.
  • Whitsunday Island – where Whitehaven Beach & Hill Inlet is located – experience the pure white silica sand as a backdrop against the crystal blue waters. The sand is soft on your feet on a hot day and great for polishing your jewellery!  Take the guided bush walk through the Whitsundays National Park to Hill Inlet lookout and have your camera ready for that photographic moment you have been waiting for with the swirling sands and Whitehaven Beach.

All Meals Prepared Fresh on Board
All meals are prepared on board Kiana from fresh ingredients.  Our unique “marine hungi” will satisfy the gourmet within you.  The Hungi is a traditional New Zealand Maori method of cooking in an earth oven.  On Kiana we have adapted this concept with our own marine version.
