Where is the best place to view unbleached GBR? From Port Douglas? Arlie beach? Hamilton Island? Are there glass bottom boat or submarine tours during stinger season? Should we consider including 2 locations-Port Douglas and Arlie beach. We'd love to see Whitehaven Beach. Thanks!
The Great Barrier Reef is the world's largest coral reef system composed of over 2,900 individual reefs and 900 islands stretching for over 2,300 kilometres over an area of approximately 344,400 square kilometres.
If you do want to view the Great Barrier Reef and Whitsundays from above, small scenic flights offer experiences to fly over 'Heart Reef' and Whitehaven Beach. Stinger season is technically from October to March, if you do chose an overnight sailing tour, you will be provided with a full length snorkel suit which will protect you whilst snorkelling, these are also good for sun protection and helps reduce excess sunscreen entering the reef and affecting the coral.
Whitehaven Beach is magical and all our overnight tours offer to take you to Hill Inlet to check out the swirly sands, we also spend a few hours on Whitehaven Beach where you get to feel the cold soft silica sand under you're feet.
If you have any other questions, please do not hesitate in contacting us.
Hope to see you soon.
