RESORT CONNECTIONS - THE FERRIES
'Barracuda' and 'Swordfish' were
purpose designed and built for 'Resort Connections'. They are 19
metre catamarans, with a capacity for 123 passengers (70 inside/53
on the upper viewing deck) and cruise at 24 knots.
Sea conditions in the Whitsundays can often be
choppy. These vessels have a high tunnel (the gap in the middle)
so that they can cruise comfortably in all conditions and not get
buffeted as vessels lower to the water do.
Cruise Whitsundays have three Resort Connections vessels with 'Orca' being added to the fleet.
Comforts on the vessels include
air conditioning, plasma screens to provide information on
the Resort and area, a bar serving REAL coffee and a full range
of drinks snacks. Hmmm… decisions,
do I have a cappuccino or rum and coke?!
