The Whitsunday Islands are an important part of the Great Barrier Reef. The fringing reefs that surround the Whitsunday Islands are a snorkeler's paradise, with its protected bays and coves, teeming with colourful and diverse marine life. Whitsunday Getaway carries a full compliment of snorkel gear aboard including stinger suits/wet suits, fins, mask and flotation assistance devices to make every snorkelling experience an unforgettable one. Snorkel with schools of tropical fish, and be amazed by the bright and vivid colours of the spectacular coral formations, keeping an eye out for sea turtles, Clownfish or the huge Maori Wrasse. The warm waters and calm seas of the Whitsundays is ideal for snorkeling year round, with an average water temperature of 25 degrees.
Paddleboards allow for a great view of the surrounding area, and are a fun way to explore the reef and coastline! Keep on enjoying the sun as you glide on the surface of the reefs, having fun keeping your balance and paddling around. From above the water, you will get to enjoy the reef in a new way as you quietly make your way around while fish and other marine life hang out below. Great for spotting turtles, stand-up paddle boards are becoming popular all over the world.
What better way to explore the 74 Whitsunday Islands than with sails up and waves below. Sailing is definitely a prime focus of Whitsunday Getaway's tours, adding to the sense of serenity of being on the water. Sit back and watch how it's done as the crew set the sails or take part and help. Sails up and engines off with only the crashing sounds of waves on the bow, this is the ultimate escape!
Whitsunday Getaway has four spacious cabins, all with queen-sized beds and private ensuites.
