You can bask in the sun, walk among the stingrays, or swim in the clear blue waters. Whitehaven has stunning views of its neighbouring islands as well as a beautiful and unique landscape that is a photographers dream.
Hill Inlet Lookout
Your host will take you on a guided bushwalk on Whitsunday Island where you will be able to witness the famed swirling sands of Hill Inlet. These swirling sands create a masterpiece of aqua, azure, topaz and white as the colours of the ocean and silica sands blend together for a truly magical experience.
Your crew will take you to several different snorkel locations where you will have the opportunity to explore the inner fringing reefs of the Great Barrier Reef Marine Park. Your crew will tell you about the reefs you visit and what to keep an eye out for - each reef is unique and home to an array of amazing marine life.
Powerplay had hosts double inflatable kayaks and paddleboards so guests can enjoy the reef in an entirely new way! Paddle around the beautiful fringing reefs of the Great Barrier Reef and enjoy this unique view of the islands, reefs and coves of the Whitsundays. Definitely one of Powerplay's best assets, the heated spa is a popular feature among all passengers. It's perfect for warming up after your water activities, or for enjoying an evening beverage while lounging and star-gazing! If you're looking for an equally relaxing but dry alternative, opt for the trampoline nets at the front of the boat.
Underwater Blue Lights
Blue lights are amazing for attracting marine life and make for the perfect show at the end of the day. The underwater blue light entertainment starts after the sun goes down, where you'll have the chance to see giant trevallies, bait fish, squid and even dolphins that come to see what the light is all about! This unique feature is an amazing way to see elusive marine life to enjoy a show unlike any other.
