Overview
Spend two days and one night at the Great Barrier Reef, one of the world’s largest coral-reef systems. The Reefworld pontoon is your base for snorkeling, semi-submersible rides and other underwater explorations by day. Stay overnight at Reefsleep, located on the upper deck of the pontoon, 40 nautical miles (74 km) from shore and sleep under the stars in a swag (tent). Includes most meals and round-trip transport from the Port of Airlie or Hamilton Island.
What to Expect
Your 2-day trip to the Great Barrier Reef begins when you board the high-speed catamaran at the Port of Airlie or Hamilton Island. Transfer to Reefworld, the innovative pontoon that features an interactive underwater viewing chamber, a semi-submersible and a spacious sun deck. Enjoy activities such as snorkeling, semi-submersible tours and scuba diving (own expense) with experienced guides who provide all the necessary equipment and instruction, in addition to informative commentary about the underwater world.

For your overnight accommodation, you'll stay in a swag—a tent equipped with a mattress and bedding. One breakfast, two lunches and one dinner are included, along with afternoon tea. It's the ultimate way to experience one of Australia's most famous natural wonders.
