What you can expect
Meet your skipper under the white umbrellas at the roundabout at Coral Sea Marina North Meeting Point B and prepare to board a magnificent tallship, where you have the opportunity to help set the sails, or just relax on deck. Sip a cup of morning tea and local pastries as you head across Pioneer Bay.
Set sail through Hook Passage to Whitsunday Island, the largest in a cluster of islands that shares the same name, and sailing past the white-sand beaches on the islands amongst thick, green vegetation. A serene sailing adventure makes your journey just as other-worldly as your destination.
Feel the wind in your hair and breathe in the crisp, calming smell of the ocean as we moor in Tongue Bay, and spot the turtles who often swim there.. Disembark into our tender and take a short walk up to the Hill Inlet lookout, where you can have a birdseye view of one of the most iconic beaches in the world: Whitehaven Beach. Turquoise water and golden sand intermingle to form a spiral-like pattern unlike anything you've seen before.
Spend an hour and a half on Whitehaven Beach & the Hill Inlet lookout to take in the gorgeous views. Frolick in the gentle waves and taking in sights of spectacular tropical scenery. Get back on the boat and savour a delicious picnic lunch as you sail to your snorkelling destination.
Stop off at one of the Whitsunday's best snorkelling spots on beautiful fringing reefs and bustling marine life. This part of the world is known for its incredible snorkelling spots, and this is a great opportunity to explore the beauty of the underwater world.
Set sail back to Coral Sea Marina and munch on delightful fruit platter while soaking up more views of and catching the breeze. Reflect on your experience as you drift tranquilly back into the marina.
