Mackay and Whitsunday Life

Out & About With Jade From Tourism Whitsundays

Recently, I was lucky enough to have an incredible outer reef experience with Red Cat Adventures.  

From start to finish, the whole trip was filled with memorable moments.

Our skipper, Reece, made the experience fun, informative, and safe. His passion for The Whitsundays and marine life was truly inspiring.

The journey to the Reef was comfortable, with the option of relaxing in the enclosed cabin or enjoying the view from the open-window hutch. I took the opportunity to meet fellow adventurers and make new friends, which made the time fly by.

We visited two amazing snorkeling locations.

The first, Hook Reef Lagoon, felt safe and supportive for snorkelers of all levels. Back on the boat, we enjoyed a delicious lunch while soaking up the sun on the top deck. Our next stop was the eastern side of Hardy Reef, where we were treated to a truly magical underwater experience.

The diverse marine life and incredible visibility left me in awe. On our journey back, we were surprised by a display of wildlife, including a sea snake, turtles, sharks, dolphins, and whales. It was a breathtaking sight that left everyone on board amazed.

I am so grateful to Red Cat Adventures for providing such an unforgettable experience. Huge thanks to Reece and the crew for making the day so special.

If you're looking for an adventure that ticks all the boxes, I highly recommend Red Cat Adventures for an outer reef experience you'll always remember.
