This super exciting half-day excursion starts with a short transfer to nearby Abel Point Marina, where you will meet your skipper and board your high-speed motor-raft. Take a fast, exhilarating ride through the stunning Whitsunday Passage, to either Black Island or Hook Island, accompanied by your friendly guide. The reef, which can be seen from outer space, boasts 2,900 individual reefs and 300 coral keys, and is half the size of Texas. As educational as it is fun, your eco-guide can tell you more about the reef's marine life, encouraging you to keep your eyes peeled for sea turtles. For those hungry for a taste of adventure, receive basic snorkel instruction before joining a guided snorkel along this spectacular reef. Then it's up to you to decide what to do next - either swim in the turquoise ocean, relax on the white-sandy beach.
