The refurbishment of the Reefworld pontoon is proudly supported by the Queensland Government’s Growing Tourism Infrastructure Fund.
Cruise Whitsundays is proud to support the region’s unique natural environment in delivering this Australian-first tourism experience.
We love where we live and work, so it’s our aim to ensure the Great Barrier Reef can be explored and enjoyed for generations to come.
Our team is working hand-in-hand with the Great Barrier Reef Marine Park Authority to ensure all elements of this project are approached in a sustainable and environmentally conscious manner.
Once work is completed later this year, the refurbished pontoon featuring two Reefsuites will be returned to its former location on Hardy Reef, thus minimising impact on the surrounding marine environment.
In working with the relevant environmental agencies during this project, we are proud to have achieved the largest natural coral transplant ever to be undertaken on the Great Barrier Reef.
More than 4000 pieces of coral have been sustainably removed from old moorings and successfully replanted onto the existing reef wall to rejuvenate the local environment. As part of this, we’ve also established a coral farm to encourage further growth in the area.
Our commitment to the marine environment continues well beyond the launch of this exciting project. The new pontoon will be a hub for public education, providing accurate reef knowledge and conservation guidance to our many visitors.
We look forward to sharing the incredible stories of the Great Barrier Reef with you.
