Sample Itinerary

Over two days and two nights, 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. They supply high quality snorkel gear and wetsuits for all passengers to use free of charge that will allow you to enjoy the warm waters in comfort! Ask your crew 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 6 brand-new double kayaks and 6 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. See turtles up close and skim the surface of the warm blue waters, all while staying dry and enjoying a leisurely paddle! Both kayaks and paddleboards can accommodate all 18 passengers so you can paddle around the islands together for the ultimate Whitsundays experience. Everything is set up and ready to go, making it a quick and easy way to take advantage of the beautiful calm waters of the Whitsundays. With two different anchorages and 4 different stops available to you, Powerplay's kayaks and paddleboards are a great way to spend your spare time while on your 2 day 2 night tour. 

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 - Did you know that blue lights attract dolphins?!
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.
