Get ready to let your jaw drop as you witness the view of the ever-changing Hill Inlet! Gaze out from a variety of spacious viewing platforms to the swirling sands of Whitsunday Island; where turquoise waters and creamy white sands intertwine. Adventure up on a short, scenic bushwalk to this natural, dazzling wonder, and don’t forget to try and spot the stingrays and even dolphins enjoying the azure waters below! 

SUPing on Whitehaven Beach, man and woman

Stand-up Paddleboards

A fun and active way to explore the reef, get adventurous with Powerplay’s stand-up paddleboards (SUPs). Cruise over bustling reefs and pristine waters in secluded inlets with your friends for an assured laugh! Whether you’re a SUP pro or a total beginner, this immersive activity allows you to turn the Whitsunday Islands into your playground as a fun one for everybody! 

Friends in heated spa on board Powerplay

Heated Jacuzzi

An absolute treat after an adventure-filled day at sea, Powerplay offers a state-of-the-art, on-deck jacuzzi! Warm-up after an ocean dip, grab a drink and watch the sunset or stargaze amongst excellent company with the luxurious perk. Truly relax, unwind and take in the beauty of the rolling Whitsunday Islands in this heated, jet-bubble spa. Or, if you prefer a dry alternative to jacuzzi-soaking, stretch out under the stars in the bow trampoline nets and listen to the water gently moving beneath you. 

Blue lights under powerplay

Blue Lights

As the sun goes down and the stars come out, your Powerplay crew will turn on the underwater aft blue lights for some completely out-of-this-world evening entertainment. As the gentle hues attract an abundance of marinelife, curious creatures such as trevallies, batfish, sharks and even dolphins are known to come and visit! The lights invite small baitfish and squid, whose presence then draws in bigger marinelife. Witness the exceptional interactions of beautiful creatures within the Great Barrier Reef like never before!

The weather was not great for our time on the Powerplay, but we really enjoyed the other passengers and had a great time! Our skipper was a bit intense and didn’t have great knowledge of some of the mechanical things (generator, motor, etc) but was still a good time.
