Whitsundays scuba diving boats
An once-in-a-lifetime experience has to be scuba diving on the Great Barrier Reef. But why not take it a step further and combine this experience with an overnight sailing trip around the Whitsunday Islands? That’s right, the Whitsundays offers a number of trips which offer onboard scuba diving around the islands which offers an amazing experience with so much more to see and explore below the surface. Even if you have never dived, the Whitsundays is the perfect location to try it with generally clear water which is sheltered, and a huge array of marine life, including turtles and wrasse, as well as the beautiful coral formations.
