Have done Airlie beach five times and have only just found a excursion we laughed and enjoyed so much! The local aqua duck is the way to go... informative and comical all the way. Danced and acted a fool like each and every person on board. Way to go guys totally recommend.

The trip to the Great Barrier Reef was 2 hours each way through somewhat heavy seas. If you are at all queasy, take seasick pills before the trip. Several people on the boat were very sick and did not share in the experience.

We never actually make it to the beach here. We went diving off the Great Barrier Reef. The catamaran picked up us right off of the ship and took us to and from the reef.

Yes, my 1 star review is to get attention to the problem. It is a huge challenge, if not impossible to book Independent tours in Airlie Beach. Most operators will not deal with cruise ship passengers. They all leave port between 8am and 9am. Cruise ship folk really don’t start arriving till after 9:00. The cruise ships really need to offer more excursions (in my case it was scuba, and Voyager of the Seas had zero scuba excursions).

This Port was reaches by a Catamaran from the ship. There is a manmade Lagoon area in which you can swim in and the main street has lots of shops, restaurants and pubs. There was a market with several stalls. All the tours were booked out so we didn't go on one. Apart from the main shopping area and Lagoon there was too much else to do unless you were doing a Tour.

Went to the Blue Lagoon pool and soaked up in the sun in the water. Loved Airlie Beach. It reminded me of Torquay with the surf and shops. Lots of shops, restaurants, bars etc... would love to come back here.
