Full description
This multi-award winning catamaran sailing tour visits the world-famous Whitehaven Beach, Hill Inlet Lookout, and offers 2 snorkelling opportunities on the fringing reefs of the Great Barrier Reef. Check-in at 11:00 AM and receive a safety briefing. The boat will depart from Coral Sea Marina at 2:30 PM. Enjoy a beautiful sunset sail out and get to know your new friends and crew. Stop at Tongue Bay, located on the north-eastern side of Whitsunday Island. Barbecued fish will be served for dinner with a few drinks. Choose to sleep under the stars, or in a cabin if you wish. The next day, wake up next to the stunning Whitehaven Beach, known for its crystal clear waters and perfect white sand. Fuel up for the day with a breakfast of fresh fruit, muesli and cornflakes, tea and coffee, and fresh bread. Enjoy a guided bush walk to Hill Inlet Lookout, a beautiful inlet where, when the tide shifts and the white sands blend together, it creates an amazing swirling effect that is photographed hundreds of times each day. For lunch, you will have cold meats, cheese and salads. Then you will snorkel on the fringing Great Barrier Reef amongst the beautiful marine and coral life. If you are into watersports, try the customized banana boat with your friends. Spend the afternoon sipping on a few drinks and enjoy a delicious dinner of spaghetti bolognese with garlic bread. The next morning, you will enjoy one last snorkel at Manta Ray Bay, one of the best snorkelling spots in the Whitsundays Islands. The bay is situated on the northern tip of Hook Island, and has an array of underwater valleys, caves and plenty of different fish. Go on a banana boat ride before sailing back into Airlie Beach across the beautiful Whitsunday Passage for a midday return. So, grab your swimwear and camera, and enjoy a few drinks while you are shown around the Whitsunday Islands!

Boat was not really nice, activity really poor ! I’ve done it with another company last year, boat was good, snorkeling really good ! So good spot, so many fish. In this trip, it was a cemetery ! No fish at all, no corals, nothing ! Please review your spot and activities except for white heaven beach which was really nice. Thanks

Unfortunately, no one sailed once on this trip, which I found very disappointing.
