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 the fastest catamaran in the Whitsundays. Thundercat has been designed for stability and speed, so it's perfect for passengers who are concerned about seasickness. Thundercat will depart the marina and travel to Whitsunday Island 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.

Your crew will select the best snorkelling locations based on weather and visibility conditions. Knowledgeable staff will take you to visit either Wonderwall or Cockatoo Point, where you will be blown away by the colours, bountiful fish, and coral formations on the UNESCO-listed Great Barrier Reef. Both have amazing coral and marine life and are some of the quietest snorkelling spots in the Whitsundays.

Next, we will cruise over to Manta Ray Bay, situated on the northern tip of Hook Island, has an array of underwater valleys, caves, and a vast array of different fish species.

A tour leader may provide general guidance around a city or village, and offer information on the place visited on the bus, however, they are not required to have specific knowledge on art, architecture, or history. They are not allowed to provide a guided tour or commentary of a city/village/attraction once there and if caught doing so, can be fined.
