Whitsundays Hamilton Island Hart Reef Cruise & Helicopter Package to Reefworld

 

The Scenic Flight

This tour features a 35 min scenic flight encompassing views of the Whitsunday islands, Hill Inlet, Heart Reef and the outer reef.

 

The Cruise

Beyond the Whitsundays, your destination is Heart Pontoon, the multilevel reef facility permanently moored 39 nautical miles from shore at spectacular Hardy Reef. Snorkel, swim and explore - an undersea encounter with this amazing ecosystem is unforgettable. Or if you'd rather stay dry, experience the reef from the underwater observatory or take a ride in a semi-submarine. After a sumptuous buffet lunch, you'll have more time to explore before head back to shore with lifelong memories of this epic Australian icon.

 

Highlights

  • Snorkelling with all gear provided, including wetsuits and stinger suits

    Of course the highlight of visiting the Great Barrier Reef is getting into the water to discover what lies beneath. If you want to see the best of the reef, take a guided Snorkel Safari (optional extra at own expense) or, you're welcome to cruise around at your leisure.

    There are marker buoys and ropes clearly indicating the areas you are free to explore and the staff will be happy to provide directions. If you are not confident swimming please make sure you let staff know. There is a lifeguard station, buoyancy aids and instructors for first time snorkellers.

  • Access to underwater observatory

    For those who don't want to get wet, you'll still be able to discover the amazing underwater world. The pontoon has a spectacular underwater viewing observatory.

    The observatory sits underneath the pontoon. It's an incredible space with one whole side of the room fitted with full length windows, showcasing an amazing wild aquarium of reef life. Only inches from the glass, you'll see colourful schools of fish and you'll also be able to watch the entertaining antics of the divers as they explore their surrounds.

  • Semi-submarine

    This is the perfect way to explore the reef, learning as you go. On board the semi submarine, there is a reef interpreter providing an informative commentary on all the interesting things you'll see. This is great for all ages and means everyone can see the magic of the reef without even getting into the water.
