Great Keppel Island Half Day Cruise

Departing from Yeppoon at the Keppel Bay Marina, your epic half day Great Keppel Island discovery tour begins around 9am where you meet your skipper onboard and go over a short safety briefing before cruising across to Fishermans Beach on Great Keppel Island.

Next stop is Shelving Reef and Clam Bay where you are treated to stunning white sandy beaches, colourful fish darting in the coral reef and dramatic coastline vistas - the perfect holiday image!

As we venture further around Great Keppel Island we discover secluded Red Beach accessible only by boat, along with secret caves hidden away in the coves.   

We then zip up around to Wreck Beach and explore more remote beaches at Big Peninsula where you can really appreciate the beauty and size of Great Keppel.

Heading back around towards Secret Beach we will see more secluded beaches, dramatic coastlines and have a chance to jump in and discover the colourful fish and coral bommies in the world below the sea.

Your half day discovery tour of Great Keppel Island finishes with a quick cruise around 
Middle and Miall Islands - two of the most stunning uninhabited islands before returning back to the Keppel Bay Marina, Yeppoon around 2:30pm.

Bonus Whale Watching Season - August to September

During the months of August and September we frequently come across giant Humpback Whales as they are migrating their way up and down the Great Barrier Reef. 

They put on a spectacular sight and it seems like they do it on purpose to perform for us.
