Day 1 (lunch & dinner)
Meet the crew and your fellow travellers in the marina where we show you the boat and complete the safety briefing before heading on our way. Once out of the marina, we’ll hoist the sails and feel the wind in our hair as we head to our first stop, Blue Pearl Bay. Here we have our first chance to scuba dive and snorkel the incredible Great Barrier Reef. Your first scuba dive is included and beginner dives are available for first-timers. After lunch, we make our way to Hook Passage where we anchor for the night. Relax on the deck and soak in the serenity as the sun sets on your first day.
Day 2 (breakfast, lunch & dinner)
Today we head to the Whitsundays’ most famous destination – Whitehaven Beach. We spend three hours relaxing on the pure white silica sands, where you can swim, sunbathe or enjoy beach activities. After lunch, we sail to Luncheon Bay where you have another chance to snorkel or dive the spectacular coral gardens. Before dinner, you can upgrade to a night dive for a unique perspective of the reef and its nocturnal inhabitants.
Day 3 (breakfast & lunch)
We spend the morning of our final day soaking up the stunning surroundings at Langford Spit. This secluded spot near Hayman Island offers more opportunities for snorkelling and diving, and hopefully spot a turtle or two! After lunch, you’ll enjoy one last chance to admire the stunning Whitsunday Islands from the water as we sail across the Whitsundays Passage back to the mainland.
