Sunlover’s pontoon is home to the only waterslide on the Great Barrier Reef. Swirling eight metres down from our sun deck on a 30-metre spiral into the tropical ocean, see if you can beat 110 slides in one day – that’s the record!

Time out with the fish

Located at one end of the pontoon, the underwater observatory is a room below sea level with a huge window allowing you to look out on the fish and coral of the reef, while staying dry! It’s open all day, so simply descend the stairs to enjoy the view whenever you like.

A great viewing time is during the fish feeding presentation when hundreds of fish swarm near the window.
