Trip Description

Climb aboard one of our high-speed, air-conditioned catamarans to cruise to Heart Pontoon, permanently moored 39 nautical miles from shore at Hardy Reef. Once you arrive, experience the reef either from the water (swimming, snorkelling, diving) or choose to stay dry (semi-submarine, underwater observatory)… or both whilst we serve a delicious buffet lunch!  Enjoy making lifelong memories of this superb natural wonder.
