Retreat and Lodges

Reefsleep is a two-day, one-night encounter with the Great Barrier Reef – a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to sleep under the stars. Exclusive Heart Pontoon at Hardy Reef is your destination – a permanently moored pontoon, located 39 nautical miles from shore on the outer Great Barrier Reef. Swim, snorkel, dive and explore this amazing natural ecosystem.

Your journey begins with a cruise to the outer reef through the gorgeous Whitsunday Islands – keep an eye out for migrating Humpback Whales between July and September. Out on the reef, go swimming and snorkelling, ride in a semi-submarine and visit the underwater observatory – followed by a generous buffet lunch. Optional upgrades include guided snorkel safaris, scuba-diving and heli-scenic flights.

After the day-trippers head back to shore, the pontoon and the reef are exclusively yours. Enjoy a sunset drink before your evening meal is served on deck, featuring fresh and delicious local produce. Afterwards, head for the pontoon’s top level and slip into your cosy swag – it’s just you, the ocean and a galaxy of stars.

Dawn on the reef is a peaceful and unhurried. There’s time for some more snorkelling after breakfast. After lunch your vessel returns you to the mainland.
