Mantaray – Full Day

From AU $165
Location: Abel Point Marina, Airlie Beach

Mantaray is a long established Day Cruise company that was purchased in 2011 by the current owners who have redifined their operation with 2 distinct tours on alternate days – a full day including Whitehaven Beach with a snorkelling/diving destination and a half day tour specifically to the snorkelling/diving destination.

They are an Eco Certified Ecotourism business and previously a Queensland & Australian Tourism Awards winner.

Mantaray is unique in this group of Day Cruises as the only one offering Scuba Diving, by their parent company Whitsunday Dive Adventures, on board together with snorkelling and therefore spending more quality time at the best fringing reefs of the Whitsunday Islands.  On their full day tour this is combined with a 2.5hour stop to the Northern end of the Whitehaven Beach area offering a guided nature walk to view Whitehaven’s magical shifting sands from Hill Inlet’s scenic lookout and time spent on the beach of Hill Inlet.

You can experience this all in a one day cruise – or their half day cruise variation – see information below on Mantaray
