Come and discover a whole new world of pleasure in the Fantastic Whitsundays aboard the Award Winning Vessel Mantaray. Visit two of the Whitsundays most pristine locations - beautiful Whitehaven Beach and Mantaray Bay. Whitehaven Beach has an amazing 7km stretch of white silica sand and an amazing lookout at Hill Inlet, while Mantaray Bay encompasses a myriad of colourful corals and tropical fish. Scuba dive and snorkel in this fascinating marine wonderland, swim in the aqua-blue waters or simply feel the sand between your toes. It's yours to enjoy. Experience a day like no other aboard Mantaray. This eco-sensitive cruise operation will whisk you around this World Heritage area at a comfortable speed of 21 knots giving you up to two hours to enjoy Whitehaven Beach/Hill Inlet Lookout, and two hours to explore snorkelling and or diving at Mantaray Bay. You will enjoy lots and lots of fish and beautiful corals. Mantaray has plenty of space, unobstructed views, a large shaded area, easy access for all ages, and an onboard toilet. Enjoy the company of the friendly and experienced crew.Listen to expert commentary about the special nature of the island national parks and the fabulous marine life. Snorkel and scuba dive under the watchful eye of our qualified crew, be tempted by a tantalising Mediterranean-style lunch and enjoy free morning and afternoon tea. It all adds up to an unforgettable addition to your Whitsunday holiday.

Nice day out around the Whitsundays. Food reminded me of 1980s Australian BBQ recipes. Staff were great. Diving and snorkeling sites weren't good.
