Pure euphoria for thrill-seekers of all ages!

Cruise along the elegant Great Sandy Strait Marine Park on a custom-built glass-bottom boat, the Milbi, and come face-to-face with the abundance of coral and marine life! Traverse the Straits and onto the island, where your Butchulla guide will welcome you with a warm ceremony!
Once on the island, feel free to work your way through an array of fun activities! Have a go at beach cricket or relax under shade trees. Your accompanying guide will enlighten you with interesting facts about the thriving marine life, along with anecdotes inspired from the indigenous culture!
Then gear up for a snorkelling adventure to explore the world below the waves! Swim the shallow waters for the ultimate eye-opener to the living, breathing, vibrant coral wonders of the world! If you’re lucky you might even spot a dolphin or a dugong, among other marine life of varied shapes, colours and sizes!
You’ll gain a whole new perspective and appreciation of the underwater world. There are a couple of other stops on the way, including the stunning Pelican Banks. In between, you can tuck into a lip-smacking lunch, a fruit platter and much more!
