Ready to embark on your best journey yet? Powerplay is calling your name! Before jumping on board, be sure to charge up your camera, pack your cosiest cossies and doll yourself up with sunscreen. Into chilled glasses of Pinot Grigio as the sun sets? Make sure you head to the nearest liquor shop before embarking.
With two action-packed days of cruising the aqua waters of the Great Barrier Reef, Powerplay gives you the ultimate opportunity to explore and relax. Wind up to wind down with Powerplay and her lively crew - we’re waiting for you!
After disembarking, our first port of call will be snorkelling. Over two unreal days and nights, your enthusiastic crew will lead you to several different world-class snorkelling sites. You’ll have the opportunity to explore the inner fringing reefs of the Great Barrier Reef Marine Park and get close and personal to our beloved marine life. This is truly nature at its best - get ready to brush shoulders with green sea turtles, giant Maori Wrasse and angelfish. High-quality snorkel equipment and wetsuits are available for all passengers to use free of charge!
Hill Inlet Lookout
The everchanging Hill Inlet Lookout is something out of a Picasso painting - with swirling sands and creamy blue hues, you need to see it to truly believe it. Your crew will guide you to the lookout point above Whitehaven Beach and Hill Inlet, allowing you to soak up the best view around. With its quicksilver nature, the sands below morph into masterpieces of aqua, azure and topaz as the colours of the ocean seamlessly blend with the world-renowned white silica sand.
Powerplay and her crew will be delighted to take you onwards to the spectacular Whitehaven Beach on Whitsunday Island. This incredible beach is located at the heart of the region, with its dreamy white silica sands and warm blue waters famous worldwide. You’ll never want to leave!
Kayaks and Paddleboards
With brand new double kayaks and paddleboards on offer, Powerplay is a floating playground. With a brand new view of the islands, reefs and coves of the Whitsundays area, you’ll spot turtles skimming the surface without even making a splash! Is there any better way to spend a leisurely afternoon on the reef?
Float along and get to know the reef in a unique way, with ample opportunities to kayak and paddleboard to your heart’s content over the two-day trip. The itinerary features two different anchorage points and four different stops for paddling or kayaking.
The heated spa on Powerplay is the cherry on top - who doesn’t love to warm up after a cool ocean dip? But it’s not only for warming up, it’s also the perfect place to relax and hang out with your pals. Enjoy an evening beverage in the warmth of the spa or lay back, relax and spend your spa-time stargazing. There’s no better place to spot the constellations than the middle of the ocean!
If you’re looking for a dry-alternative to spa-gazing, opt to relax in the bow trampoline nets.
As the delightful days come to an end, it’s time to turn on the underwater blue lights for some groovy evening entertainment. Embedded in the aft hulls, Powerplay boasts two blue lights that are perfect for attracting an incredible array of marine activity including giant trevallies, huge batfish and dolphins! The light works by attracting bait fish and squid, who then lure in predators like sharks and dolphins to the back of the boat. Watching the fish dart around the boat is a fascinating and unique experience that will leave you in awe of our wonderful world.
There’s no stress about keeping your camera safe and dry - our enthusiastic crew members will be capturing your Whitsunday experience for you, free of charge! Dubbed the 'Powerplay Paparazzi', the crew will take the pressure off by capturing your special moments for you. Uploaded straight to Facebook after the tour, it’s the ultimate chance to sit back, relax and let the good times roll!
