We flew in the helicopter over the reef from the Hardy Reef Pontoon. In my opinion, it was even more amazing seeing the reef from the air as opposed to diving or snorkeling. From the air you actually see the connected web of life of...More

When you book the Whitehaven beach getaway, it's $330 per person with a minimum of 2 people. They might try to book maximum 2 other guests. Or you might want to pay $660 just for your self.
