2 Day/1 Night Cruise Whitsundays Reef-Sleep Tour from The Whitsundays

Adults from $499

Sleep under the stars on the Great Barrier Reef. This unique experience spends the night on the Reefworld platform at Hardy Reef.

​Visit one of the greatest wonders of the natural world. The Great Barrier Reef is a must see for visitors. Its formation began millions of years ago.

As it continues to thrive you can expect to see many forms or coral, fish and other marine life.

Your visit will be based from the Reefworld Pontoon where you can choose from a range of included activities such as taking a ride in a semi submersible submarine or snorkel with fish such as the giant grouper with gear the provided. 3:00pm the day guest will depart and you will be left with up to 12 other guests and a few friendly crew members.

This is when you will experience the tranquility of the calm blue waters surrounding you. As the sun starts to sink over the horizon make sure you have your camera ready for one of the most beautiful sunsets you will ever see.

Once night falls you will be served a gourmet barbecue with the other guest. As you are so far away from the shore and man-made lights the stars will appear bright then you have ever seen, you can choose to gaze at them through the telescope onboard on from one of the star-loungers.

Your accommodation for the night is your choice of a swag rolled out under the stars or a private air-conditioned bedroom with an ensuite. Come morning you will be served a delicious breakfast and the platform which you’ll have to yourself until the day guests arrive at 11am.

You then have the day to continue exploring the platform and Hardy Reef before returning to The Whitsundays on the 3:00pm vessel. *Please Note - a medical declaration form must be completed to join this tour due to the pontoons remote location and limited accessibility*

Rated: 32121 (3.0/5 based on 1 customer reviews)


32121 Sleeping under the stars and snorkeling in the morning was the best part of this trip. However, some of the things that were advertised eg. reef slide, and air conditioned lounges weren't there. There are also ALOT of people who take this tour -around 200-300 people which can be a bit uncomfortable - next time would do a smaller tour.
