Be amazed as your amphibious Aquaduck splashes in at Port of Airlie Marina for a 45 minute calm water cruise through Pioneer Bay.  Your local on board tour guide will inform you about the natural and geographical features of the area including an introduction to the Great Barrier Reef Marine Park and the creatures that call this underwater wonderland home. Upon reaching Abell Point Marina, the Aquaduck emerges from the water and the land part of your tour begins. Enjoy the next 15 minutes driving through the township learning about the history and sights before returning to the Port of Airlie Marina where the tour concludes.  

There are plenty of photo opportunities on board so don’t forget to bring your cameras and go-pro’s along with you. The Aquaduck is a relaxed tour suitable for all ages from babies to centurians with children offered the opportunity to drive the Aquaduck out on water, they will also receive a free souvenir Captains Certificate to take home.

Following your tour, if you still have free time, it’s a peaceful 10 minute stroll in the sunshine back into Airlie Beach township where you can explore the markets, local shops and dine on fresh food and cold drinks in one of the many local restaurants and bars. Come and see why everyone is falling in love with Airlie Beach, the heart of the Whitsundays.

Just make sure you are back at the Port of Airlie Marina in time for your transfer back to your ship.
