Diving and Snorkelling in the Whitsundays
The Great Barrier Reef’s beauty and diverse marine life are essential elements of the qualia sensory experience.
Ask our qualia concierge team about our exclusive beach drop offs. North and West Henning Island are ideal locations for snorkelling.
Glide above the fringing coral reef surrounding Hamilton Island, or explore the exquisite white sands of Whitehaven Beach where you can:
- let your feet sink into the sparkling white silica sand;
- take a dip in the warm tropical waters;
- explore Hill Inlet and discover the rainbow swirls of turquoise, blue and green created by the tide shifting the sand and water.
Fly by helicopter or seaplane to snorkel the Great Barrier Reef, with stunning aerial views of Heart Reef, Whitehaven Beach and the Whitsunday Passage en route. Novice snorkellers can learn to dive on a guided snorkelling safari, take an open-water course dive on an instructor-led scuba-diving adventure, or set sail for the reef on a fully-crewed private charter.
The qualia Activities Team can advise on Hamilton Island snorkelling right on Pebble Beach, or take you to another island location for snorkelling on Hamilton Island.
With a full range of snorkel masks, fins, suits and buoyancy aids on hand, the qualia activities team can arrange everything you need.
