One of the most unique ways to experience the beauty of the Whitsundays is a Reefsleep: an inspired idea that has become a popular way to enhance the sea and island experience, with an overnight stay in the beautiful surrounds of the Great Barrier Reef. Reefsleep allows visitors to witness a full day in the life of the Whitsunday Islands and the natural reef environments on a cosy pontoon, where guests get to sleep under the stars and wake up to the immense beauty that this part of the world is known for.

Reefsleeps are located on special pontoons that are fitted with all the modern conveniences for a comfortable daytime excursion and overnight stay. Situated near some of the most beautiful areas of the Great Barrier Reef, the stationary pontoon becomes your home for the next 24 to 48 hours.

Snorkle or sunbake before an evening under the stars

Hop on a high-speed power boat and head out to the pontoon where a tasty lunch awaits before jumping into the water for a refreshing swim or eye-opening snorkel where the beautiful sea life and colourful reefs come to life. Relax on deck with a drink in hand, sunbaking or enjoying a good book before plunging down the water slide into the inviting waters before dinner and an evening under the stars.

Reefsleep adventure packages are wonderful ways to experience the Great Barrier Reef. Packages include freshly prepared meals, hot and cold beverages and a myriad of activities, along with the required equipment needed for exploring the world on and beneath the waves. If it's simple relaxation you’re after, Reefsleep pontoons provide all the amenities for a peaceful experience where you can simply relax and take in all the beautiful scenery. Either way, Reefsleep is an experience you won’t soon forget.
