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. Paddle board across the deep blues of the sea or snorkel the vibrant hues of the Southern Great Barrier Reef. The Keppel Islands are a cluster of 15 islands and islets that 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 snorkel beautiful coral reefs, paddle board crystal clear waters, relax on our chill-out pontoon, or 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 snorkelling spots teeming with tropical fish, or just relax on the brilliant white sands of a secluded 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. Funtastic Cruises' Kraken Experience is more than just a journey; it’s an adventure that stirs the soul and ignites a sense of wonder
