Whitsundays Great Barrier Reef Adventure

Australia’s Great Barrier Reef is 2600 km long. Stretching along the east coast of Queensland from Lady Elliott Island  to the Torres Strait. Our Whitsundays Great Barrier Reef Adventure will show you the best of the Whitsundays.

You will travel on a high speed catamaran. The journey to and from the reef is all part of the experience. Passing spectacular islands and bays. At certain times of the year you’ll have the chance to spot whales and other wildlife.

All day, Fun Fun Fun!
