Information About Whitsundays Reefsleep

Reefsleep can now accommodate 24 people overnight and is generally booked out well in advance.

At 3 pm Seaflight departs Hardy Reef for the mainland leaving the reefsleep guests (maximum of 24 people) plus diving instuctor and chef on the pontoon. Peace and serenity settles over the reef and the sounds of seabirds and lapping water have a powerful calming effect on all present. Then the reef takes on a different life as sea turtles come to feed on seaweed growing on the sides of the pontoon and more stars than you ever thought existed fill the night sky. The evening meal set up in a barbeque, smorgasbord style is ready and afterwards enjoy the ambience of the reef at night. Then shower and bed under the stars in your Australian unique reefsleep bed.

Breakfast is followed by more tranquil atmosphere during which time you can opt to snorkel with your group. You will have time to visit some special spots where you can see giant maori wrasse and spectacuar coral formations. Reef fish, turtles and reef sharks may all make an appearance at this time. If you're not a keen snorkeler then this a great time to have the underwater viewing chamber to yourself and watch the other members of your group as they snorkel in the calm reef waters. Then at 11 am Seaflight returns with the new group of day guests and after another day at the reef you return to the mainland departing at 3 pm and arriving in Airlie Beach at 6 pm.
