8-Day Great Barrier Reef School Excursion
This example 8-day school excursion to the Whitsundays begins with an arrival day, full of educational tutorials about the Great Barrier Reef and field activities that teach your students about the importance of mangroves and wetlands. The field activities can vary, and you will be accompanied by a Master Guide at each stage of the excursion.
The following six days will be spent exploring the best of the Whitsundays. Popular examples include: a full-day cruise with the Outer Great Barrier Reef Experience; a Fringing Reefs and Island Habitat field activity; a Wetlands Eco-Tour that explores the Proserpine river system; and a day of sailing on a traditional tall ship.
Other possible activities include: embarking on a fast-paced sailing adventure across the Whitsundays aboard a former racing maxi yacht; scuba diving or snorkelling over fringing coral reefs; joining a guided nature bushwalk through the Whitsunday Island National Park; sea kayaking around tropical islands; or feeding and caring for sick and injured turtles at the Eco Barge Turtle Rescue Centre. If there are other specific themes that your school would like to incorporate into the excursion, please let the team at Whitsunday Discovery Tours know and we will do our best to accommodate.
