5. Keppel Islands: Fast Boat Snorkeling & Lunch Day Adventure

Imagine the thrill of skimming across the azure waters of the Southern Great Barrier Reef, the wind in your hair, the sun on your face, and the breathtaking beauty of the Keppel Islands on the horizon. This is no ordinary boat trip; it’s a quick and comfortable adventure that takes you deep into the heart of one of Australia’s most stunning archipelagos, less than an hour from Rockhampton and only minutes from Yeppoon, on the Capricorn Coast in Central Queensland. As your Funtastic Cruises fast boat, "The Kraken" slices through the waves, you’ll marvel at the kaleidoscope of colours beneath you - from the deep blues of the sea to the vibrant hues of the coral reefs. The Keppel Islands, a cluster of 15 islands and islets, emerge like emerald jewels, their lush vegetation, and white sandy beaches a stark contrast to the surrounding sea. Weave through narrow channels, past secluded bays and pristine beaches. Every turn reveals a new vista, each more breathtaking than the last. You’ll spot marine life - dolphins leaping in your wake, turtles surfacing for air, and if you’re lucky, whales or manta rays gliding effortlessly beneath your boat. As you easily disembark on a white sandy beach, the islands offer a wealth of experiences - from hiking trails that lead to panoramic views to paddle boarding and snorkeling spots teeming with tropical fish, or just relax on the brilliant white sands of a secluded beach while your crew prepare a fresh & delicious cold buffet picnic on the beach. As we make our way back to the mainland, you’ll be left with memories of an exhilarating full day tour and a newfound appreciation for the natural beauty of the Keppel Islands.

Great experience, a very kind and funny guide. We were able to witness the hatching of a crocodile egg, a unique moment. We also had the chance to see the crocodiles being fed and to have been able to take a photo with a baby crocodile.
