|Start||Airlie Beach @ 8.00 am|
|Finish||Airlie Beach @ 6.10 pm|
Your journey begins with a cruise to the outer reef through the gorgeous Whitsunday Islands - keep an eye out for migrating Humpback Whales between July and September. Out on the reef, go swimming and snorkelling, ride in a semi-submarine and visit the underwater observatory - followed by a generous buffet lunch. Optional upgrades include guided snorkel safaris, scuba-diving and heli-scenic flights.
After the day-trippers head back to shore, the pontoon and the reef are exclusively yours. Enjoy a sunset drink before your evening meal is served on deck, featuring fresh and delicious local produce. Afterwards, head for the pontoon's top level and slip into your cosy swag - it's just you, the ocean and a galaxy of stars.
Dawn on the reef is peaceful and unhurried. There's time for some more snorkelling after breakfast - the reef is all yours to enjoy - or return to the underwater observatory and watch the reef come to life. After lunch, your Cruise Whitsundays vessel returns you to the mainland. Your night on the reef may be over, but your Reefsleep memories will stay with you forever.
