Mantaray Charters is one of the established Day Tour Operations departing from Airlie Beach. The minute you board Mantaray, enjoy a cup of tea, coffee, or Milo (choc) and Australian Lamingtons, you will feel at ease and relaxed! You will then meet their friendly and experienced crew who will assist you in any way they can all day.
Mantaray is the only operator to combine both scuba diving, snorkelling with visiting the famous Whitehaven beach and nature walk of Hill Inlet. See the juvenile sharks and rays in the shallow clear water. There will be a guide with you who will tell you the facts of Whitehaven Beach and who can answer your questions. By the time you get back on the boat lunch will be served and during lunch the boat heads towards Hook Island or Hayman Island to moor in one of the bays where you will have lots of time to snorkel or Scuba Dive.
