The Whitsunday Islands are an important part of the Great Barrier Reef and it's vast and diverse ecosystem. The fringing reefs of the islands are a snorkeller's paradise, where you'll find amazing marine life, nestled away in calm coves and protected bays. Whitsunday Getaway carries a full compliment of snorkel gear aboard including stinger suits, fins, mask and flotation assistance devices, so all guests can enjoy an unforgettable snorkelling experience. Snorkel with schools of tropical fish, and be amazed by the bright and vivid colours of the spectacular coral formations. The warm waters and calm seas of the Whitsundays are ideal for snorkelling year round, with an average water temperature of 25 degrees.
Our favourite snorkel spots are based around Dumbell Island, Hayman Island and Hook Island, where you'll get to snorkel and explore among the amazing and colourful local residents. Dumbell Island is known as the fish tank because of the huge quantity of fish life, and they play right at the back of the boat. The spectacular Mantaray Bay is popular because of the resident giant fish called George, a 1.6m Maori Wrasse. He's very friendly and always seeking attention, and has been known to be a bit of a camera hog.
What better way to explore the 74 Whitsunday Islands than with the sails up! We keep sailing at the top of the agenda on board Whitsunday Getaway, always allowing our guests to have to amazing experience of a sail-powered trip.
