DescriptionTake an exhilarating ride to the best snorkeling locations in the Whitsunday Islands all in one day. This multi-award winning tour visits the world-famous Whitehaven Beach, Hill Inlet Lookout and offers 2 snorkelling opportunities on the fringing reefs of the Great Barrier Reef. Ride on one of the fastest catamarans in the Whitsundays. The boat has been designed for stability and speed, so is perfect for passengers who are concerned about seasickness. You will be picked up from Base Backpackers Airlie Beach and driven to Abell Point Marina by bus. The boat will then depart at 8:30 AM and travel to Tongue Bay for a once-in-a-lifetime experience on Whitehaven Beach, famous for its white sands and crystal clear waters. It is also one of the most photographed beaches in the world. Then, enjoy a guided bush walk to Hill Inlet Lookout, located at the northern end of the beach. The tide shifts and the white sands blend together, creating an amazing effect. Enjoy fresh, homemade gluten-free brownies for morning tea, followed by a buffet lunch of zucchini frittata and quiche lorraine, cold sliced meats and cheeses, salads, and bread, before heading to two snorkelling locations. Your crew will select the best snorkeling locations based on weather and visibility conditions. You will visit either Peter Bay or Stonehaven, and be blown away by the colors, bountiful fish and coral formations on the UNESCO-listed Great Barrier Reef. Peter Bay has amazing coral and marine life, and is one of the quietest snorkelling spots in the Whitsundays, and Stonehaven is where the locals go. Next you will go to Manta Ray Bay, situated on the northern tip of Hook Island, which has an array of underwater valleys, caves and plenty of different fish. Enjoy exploring the crystal clear waters as your guides point out everything there is to see. Afternoon tea of fresh fruit will be provided before the scenic journey back to Airlie Beach, where you will arrive at approximately 5:00 PM.
