After a couple of hours soaking up the sun on the beach, you should be ready for a fresh and tasty lunch on the boat. This includes a great selection of cold cut meats, pasta dishes, and salads to fuel you for the afternoon.
Next, Wildcat will take you on a fast ride to Peter Bay to view some amazing colourful soft corals and then on to the renowned Manta Ray Bay for an exciting snorkel amongst hundreds of colourful fish.
