This small group tour of only 36 guests is like no other. Custom-built for comfort and speed, propelled by the ultimate Rolls Royce jets for speed & low environmental impact. On board Viper is comfortable mesh seating, and a toilet. Easy water entry for snorkelling or beach access with our spacious swim deck and stairs.

About the day:

After little more than an hour of high speed cruising, you will arrive at Bait Reef and an iconic location called The Stepping Stones. The stairs will be lowered into the water so guests can embark on their Great Barrier Reef snorkelling adventure straight away. The swim platform area offers ample room to move about and the stairs offer easy access into the water. Approx. time spent at the reef is an hour and a half.

Only half an hour or so from the reef, you will arrive at Tongue Bay and commence the bushwalk up to the famous Hill Inlet Lookouts. Bring your camera because this is a spectacular photo opportunity! Marvel at the swirling sands of Hill Inlet and gaze along the length of Whitehaven Beach.

Following Hill Inlet in a short 10 minute boat ride you will arrive at the southern end of Whitehaven Beach. Here you can swim, relax, play beach games, soak up some sun or go for a walk. There are two other lookouts at the southern end, for those wanting more amazing views, otherwise, relax and enjoy one of the most beautiful beaches in the world!
