SNORKEL SAFARI | A GUIDED SNORKELLING TOUR

Snorkelling is the easiest way to view coral reefs. Snorkelling and scuba diving are completely different activities though and one of the great things about snorkelling is that we can talk to you while we snorkel. Our snorkel tours are ideal for both first-time snorkellers – and experienced snorkellers who want to learn more about what they’re looking at out on the reef.

INTRODUCTORY DIVE | LEARN TO DIVE AT THE GREAT BARRIER REEF

There is no better place to experience the magic of your first scuba dive than at the outer Great Barrier Reef. Our fully certified PADI/SSI instructors will step you through all the training and escort you on your first amazing adventure. The minimum age is 12 years old for this activity.

CERTIFIED DIVE | DIVE AT THE WORLD'S MOST FAMOUS REEF

Experienced divers can enjoy spectacular dives at specially selected sites with a variety of coral formations that are teeming with marine life. All dives are escorted by our experienced crew, ensuring an unforgettable experience.

HELI-SCENIC FLIGHTS | FLY OVER FAMOUS HEART REEF

To truly appreciate the size, scope and beauty of the Great Barrier Reef, a scenic helicopter flight is a must do. You’ll be awed by the stunning beauty of the maze of reefs weaved together to form the Great Barrier Reef, and iconic Heart Reef is a sight to behold. Splash out and treat yourself to this adventure, you will not be disappointed.

Please note that bookings for heli-scenic flights are taken on board the vessel.

After lunch, guests can snorkel, dive, swim or take a scenic helicopter flight to see famous Heart Reef (additional cost). Day visitors depart mid-afternoon and then overnight guests have Hardy Reef and Reefworld all to themselves.

Watch a stunning sunset with a drink in hand before enjoying a starlit long-table dinner on the pontoon’s upper deck. After dinner, Reefsuite guests can retreat to the privacy of their undersea accommodation. Sit back, relax and watch as the reef comes to life through the floor to ceiling windows.

Reefsuites give a whole new meaning to ‘a room with a view’ and you’ll awake to see the marine life going about another day on the world-heritage listed reef they call home. Enjoy a leisurely breakfast and an exclusive morning on the reef before heading home in the afternoon with memories that will stay with you forever.
