Abstract: Cruise ships visit the Marine Park for the scenic beauty of the cruising grounds. In addition, suitable anchorages throughout the Marine Park allow access to the reef and islands where activities such as swimming, snorkelling and SCUBA diving can be undertaken. More and more cruise ships are visiting the Marine Park each year, many seeking natural anchorage in addition to standard port calls. Cruise ships are permitted to access a number of cruise ship anchorages in the Marine Park, however at present, the majority of ships only visit Cid Harbour in the Whitsundays and only once or twice per year, typically in the months of January, February and March.
