All about the 2 day / 2 night Powerplay Catamaran

Cruise the Whitsunday Islands on a catamaran called 'Powerplay', a stable and relaxing yacht with shaded areas and comfortable accommodation. Stop at Whitehaven beach, go snorkelling, dive, relax in the hot tub and check out the islands in the area. this tour is only for those 18 - 35 years old. 

Catamaran tours around the Whitsunday Islands offer time to explore the islands, including time to relax at the magnificent Whitehaven Beach, walk to Hill Inlet Lookout and experience snorkelling stops on the fringing coral reefs which extend right from the edge of the Islands. Vessels include clear Kayaks and Paddle Boards.

Powerplay is 12 metres long and offers plenty of space to relax on the deck, all with permanently shaded deck area and comfortable accommodation.

Kayaking and paddleboards  on board the Catamaran
Powerplay has 6 double kayaks and 6 paddleboards so you can get out on the water around the Whitsunday Islands.  If you are lucky you will spot turtles up close and personal as you paddle the fringing reefs of the Great Barrier Reef.  With two different anchorages and 4 different stops available to you, Powerplay's kayaks and paddleboards are a great way to spend your spare time while on your Whitsunday Islands trip.

Blue Lights on board Powerplay
At night we turn on the underwater blue lights for some night time viewing. Powerplay has two blue lights so you can see so much marine activity such as giant trevallies, huge batfish, and even dolphins! These blue lights attract lots of baitfish and squid, and it is these small bait fish that bring in the bigger fish like Dolphins to come and say G'day.  A peaceful nighttime activity.

Powerplay Paparazzi
Our crew members help you capture your Whitsunday experience to share with all your mates back home. Sit back, relax and enjoy the Whitsundays as our crew take your photos for you.  We pop these photos onto Facebook after your trip which means while you're on Powerplay you can really just enjoy the experience and not worry about taking constant selfies.
