  • Our Whitsundays dive and snorkel boat carries a maximum of 35 guests and 5 crew
  • Our eco-sensitive boat cruises at a comfortable speed of 21 knots to give guests up to 2 hours to enjoy Whitehaven Beach and Hill Inlet and the another 2 hours for scuba diving and snorkelling Mantaray Bay
  • The dive boat has plenty of space, unobstructed views, a large shaded area, easy access for all ages, an onboard toilet and shower facility

On our 1 day Whitsunday boat tours from Airlie Beach we cruise our way at 21 knots to Whitehaven Beach and Hill Inlet where our guests have around 1 hour and 45 minutes to enjoy this stunning iconic location on the Great Barrier Reef in Australia.

We are one of a few Airlie Beach dive boats to cruise the Whitsundays, and visit Whitehaven Beach and Hill Inlet and provide scuba diving and snorkelling on a 1 day tour from Airlie Beach.

Our dive and snorkel boat leaves from the Coral Sea Marina (formerly Abell Point Marina) in Airlie Beach around 7.45am and returns back to harbour around 4.30pm.

We offer courtesy transfers to and from your accommodation in the Airlie Beach area down to Shute Harbour, so there is no need to worry about how to find us. 

We are licenced to carry a maximum of 40 Passengers (35 Guests and 5 Crew) onboard.

Our boat is extremely comfortable to travel on, as we have cushioned benches all with a table for lunch, drinks and relaxation.

If weather permits, guests onboard can move around and enjoy the different views.

The boat is fully roofed and is fitted with roll down clears to keep any inclement weather out of the boat to keep guests comfortable. 

If travelling with infants they are free of charge. The sides of the boat are completely closed so quite safe for children but at the same time they are to be under full supervision of parents or guardians at all times. 

During the day the crew will prepare morning tea, lunch and afternoon tea including tea; coffee; and Milo.

Bring along your water bottle as we provide drinking water in big tanks for everyone to refill as much as they want during a hot day on the Great Barrier Reef in Australia.

Visit Whitehaven Beach and Hill Inlet in the Whitsundays – 2 hours

Our eco-sensitive boat cruises at a comfortable speed of 21 knots to give guests up to 2 hours to enjoy Whitehaven Beach and Hill Inlet and the another 2 hours for scuba diving and snorkelling around Mantaray Bay.

The boat is moored in Tongue Bay, from which we make the little bush walk up to Hill Inlet where you have a beautiful view over Whitehaven Beach, before heading down to the beach itself (northern end of the beach).

Scuba Diving And Snorkelling – 2 Hours

After (or before, always depending on the weather and tidal conditions) we visit a lovely sheltered bay of the Great Barrier Reef  around one of the Whitsunday Islands, Hook Island or Hayman Island where you can go either snorkelling and/or scuba diving to explore the beautiful underwater world of the Great Barrier Reef. 

Book yourself an introductory scuba dive on the Great Barrier Reef.
