Our seaplanes showcase the amazing expanse of the Great Barrier Reef from above sea level before landing and transferring to our private semi- submersible at Hardy Reef to experience its beauty from below sea level.
Enjoy two hours of coral viewing and snorkelling from the comfort of our glass bottom boat moored inside the calm confined waters of Hardy Lagoon; a coral suspended lagoon in the Great Barrier Reef marine park. Easy access into the water from the rear platform of the vessel ensures passengers of all snorkelling skill levels can enjoy this exclusive reef location in ease.
The vessel also has an underwater viewing chamber, sun and shade deck areas and is equipped with all snorkelling equipment and flotation devices.
All tours to our location are scheduled around low tide and being surrounded by a reef wall it creates a tranquil coral lagoon for the aircraft to land in and the guests to snorkel in.
During low tide our location is only 2-6 metres deep providing the first time snorkeller with more confidence due to the comfortable conditions, while the more experienced can enjoy the abundance of marine life and coral that the added protection of the reef wall has provided.
Enjoy aerial views of Shute Harbour, the Whitsunday Islands, Hook, Hardy and Heart Reefs from above and explore this amazing underwater world from below!
