Kiana’s Captain has extensive experience sailing the Great Barrier Reef and chooses locations for diving and snorkelling that will give the best experience with the conditions on the day. Visit the best dive and snorkelling site in the Whitsunday Islands, the north end of Hook Island, where you’ll discover dive sites like Luncheon Bay, Mantaray Bay and Mackerel Bay. They will take you breath away with the beautiful soft corals and diversity of marine life. Bait Reef is the choice outer reef destination in the Whitsundays. With a ban on fishing, there is an abundance of various dive sites around Bait Reef, and it is an Eden for both Scuba diving and snorkelling. The natural lagoon provides a haven for overnight mooring.
