Whitsundays/Cairns travel

Hi everyone!
Me and a friend are planning to spend a week travelling the north, we have a flight booked to Hamilton Island mid-June, and we're hoping to do Whitsundays and Cairns in a week. We're on a bit of a tight budget at the moment; I will be able to put forward around $100 a week from now until June, so $900ish by the time we go. My friend will be earning a little more so for ease we'll say we each have the same budget. Obviously that means it will be hard to pre-book things but I know prices may go up the closer to the time we get.
So far we've been offered a price of $1612 for the following, by a travel company:

2 nights accommodation at Airlie Beach 3 days/2 nights boat trip round Whitsundays, including food and intro diveBus to Cairns from Airlie BeachSkydive (for 1 - her) in Cairns

Obviously the agent is pushing it, saying the deal 'won't be available for long' but I was just wondering if anyone knows a cheaper/better way of doing it? Or literally has any general tips on planning the trip etc.
Any help would be much appreciated!
Thanks :)
