What to Expect

Departing at 8:00 AM
Returning at 6:10 PM

Moored offshore at Hardy Reef, 40 nautical miles from Airlie Beach, Reefworld is the setting for your spectacular overnight Reefsuite experience. Relaunching in 2019, the revamped pontoon hosts day trippers, on-deck Reefsleep guests and a lucky few who’ll head below deck for a private, all-inclusive Reefsuite experience.

Begin your journey with a cruise through the Whitsunday Islands to Hardy Reef onboard our high-speed vessel, arriving at the reef around 11am. After lunch, guests can snorkel, dive, swim or take a scenic helicopter flight to see famous Heart Reef (additional cost). Day visitors depart mid-afternoon and then overnight guests have Hardy Reef and Reefworld all to themselves.

Watch a stunning sunset with a drink in hand before enjoying a starlit long-table dinner on the pontoon’s upper deck. After dinner, Reefsuite guests can retreat to the privacy of their undersea accommodation. Sit back, relax and watch as the reef comes to life through the floor to ceiling windows.

Reefsuites give a whole new meaning to ‘a room with a view’ and you’ll awake to see the marine life going about another day on the world-heritage listed reef they call home. Enjoy a leisurely breakfast and an exclusive morning on the reef before heading home in the afternoon with memories that will stay with you forever.

FAQ

Question: Can the reef be seen at night from inside the Reefsuites?
Answer: The water outside the Reefsuites will be lit directly by a light, which will enable guests to see marine life, but it is unlikely they’ll see the reef.

Question: Will there be hotel-style amenities such as shampoo, body wash and hair dryers?
Answer: Yes, each Reefsuite will include basic amenities including a hair dryer.

Question: Can children experience Reefsuites?
Answer: Children must be 6 years or older to experience Reefsuites. Reefsuites will be charged at a per person rate, regardless of age.

Question: What are the check in / check out times for Reefsuites?
Answer: We strive to maximise every guests time available in the luxury of their Reefsuite and we do vary our check-in/out times based on the operational requirements of Reefworld to ensure this is achieved.  However, generally checkout is before 12noon and check-in is from 3pm. Our Reefworld Hosts will be able to advise of specific timing upon your arrival at Reefworld.
