Blue Pearl Bay is on Hayman Island, in the northern part of the magnificent Whitsunday Islands on Queensland's Central Coast. Sail and relax with Illusions as we leave Abel Point Marina at Airlie Beach and cross the Whitsunday Passage to Hayman Island.
Snorkelling and being part of the fish feeding at Blue Pearl Bay is an absolute highlight of any trip to the Whitsundays. We can guarantee that you will see over 500 species of fish, and over 200 plus types of coral.

Whether you choose to snorkel (free tuition is provided for those experiencing this for the first time) or take an introductory or certified scuba dive with our own qualified instructor, you will be delighted at the range and diversity of the coral at Blue Pearl. As is typical of fringing reefs, the range of coral is extensive, with all sorts of hard and soft corals waiting for you to explore their fragile beauty.

For those not wanting or unable to venture into the water, Illusions is equipped with Bathyscopes that allow you to see the coral and fish life from above water as we float over the bay in our dinghy.  Yes -- everyone that goes out on Illusions gets to see the fish and coral.
