Reef Experience On Air

Enjoy exclusive access to a private semi-submersible in the middle of the Great Barrier Reef ... by air!

Departing daily, our seaplanes showcase the amazing expanse of the World Heritage-listed Great Barrier Reef Marine Park 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.
