“Whitsunday Cruises”
Reviewed 7 June 2014

Travelled to heart reef on a full day tour through whitsunday cruises that departs from Abel point marina. Crew on board were really friendly - cruise takes about 3hrs to get there and it was slightly rough for about 40minutes. All catering / snorkel gear w wet suits / submarine rides were included. Can book massages / helicopter tours / diving @ additional costs which was also very popular. We saw "chip"one of the resident turtles from the underwater deck. Huge fish and pretty coral when snorkelling.
Very long day but worth it if you haven't been to the Great Barrier Reef before.

“What a beautiful spot”
Reviewed 5 June 2014

All the photos do not do it justice to this jewel on the ocean. Air Whitsunday Panoramic tour was wonderful.

“Small but must do”
Reviewed 30 May 2014

Smaller than expected but an incredible natural formation - must see from the air, we flew with GSL Aviation and had a great trip to the reef.

“Flight over the Reef”
Reviewed 29 May 2014

On honeymoon, flying over the heart reef is definitely a "must"! :-)
We enjoyed that 1-hour-trip from the airport really much.
