Tour Description

It really doesn't get much better than this.

With Cruise Whitsundays you have the amazing opportunity to spend a night sleeping under the stars at the Great Barrier Reef.

This two day, one night adventure is a once in a lifetime experience. There can be few more unique experiences offered in the world than the chance to sleep under the stars, 39 nautical miles from shore on the Great Barrier Reef. Our permanently moored pontoon is located on Hardy Reef - one of the most spectacular stretches of the Great Barrier Reef. This is the destination for our day visitors, but for a lucky few it is a once in a life time, breathtaking and memorable overnight experience.

Day One
Travel to Hardy Reef as part of the Great Barrier Reef Adventure onboard one of our high speed vessels. By day, all the amazing activities offered on our Great Barrier Reef Adventure are there to be enjoyed - diving, snorkelling, massages and scenic helicopter flights. By 3pm the day guests depart and you get the pontoon all to yourself and your fellow Reefsleep guests.

A Night at the Reef
As dusk approaches watch for turtles surfacing or coming to nibble the seaweed around the pontoon. Watch as the sun sets over the reef while you sip your sundowner and then see the reef really come to life in the darkness of the night. Gaze up at a gazillion stars from your comfy swag set up on the top deck of the pontoon before the tranquillity of being in the middle of the ocean lulls you to sleep.

Day 2
In the morning, enjoy more time with the reef before the day guests join you. Optional guided snorkelling and diving trips during this exclusive time at the pontoon with your group will see you visit very special spots - giant Maori Wrasse, spectacular coral formations, a myriad of tropical fish, turtles and reef sharks all might make an appearance. If you're not a keen swimmer then have the underwater viewing chamber to yourself and watch your fellow guests swim around, or look at the coral from the comfort of our semi-submersible vessel. You'll head home with the day guests onboard the reef vessel in the afternoon, taking home plenty of memories and stories to tell.

Meals
All this sea air makes you hungry. Throughout the day curb your hunger with morning and afternoon tea and a sumptuous buffet lunch. Fish D'Vine, a leading restaurant from Airlie Beach supply our catering, taking care to base the menu on seasonality and the best produce available. Free tea and coffee is available and there is also a bar onboard serving a full range of alcoholic and soft drinks. A delicious breakfast and BBQ dinner is also included.
