Itinerary

Southern Cross Day Sailing Adventure

With a coach pickup from your accommodation to the marina, you will depart from Abell Point Marina at 8am.

Enjoy morning tea of fruit and biscuits and crew commentary of the surrounding islands, then before you know it, you will have arrived at your first destination, Tongue Bay on Whitsunday Island.

Using the tender, guests transfer in groups over to Whitehaven beach, and then one of the crew will guide guests along the path to the Hill Inlet Lookout. Here guests take in the spectacular view of Australia's number one beach, marvel at the shimmering swirling sands covered by crystal clear waters.  Don't forget to ask the guide to take pictures of you with this famous background.

You will then have time to explore the beach, before being welcomed back onboard with a delicious lunch. Setting sail once again for the voyage to your snorkel location. Snorkel equipment and stinger suits will be issued as the crew provide a snorkel briefing and instruction on the snorkelling site. With temperatures rarely dropping lower than 21°C, this is a very comfortable snorkel location, with tropical fish and corals blanketing the ocean floor, the odd turtle and dolphin also can’t resist saying hello.

Around 3:30pm you will set sail for Airlie Beach, switching off the engine and by the power of wind sailing across the Whitsunday Passage.  The crew will serve an afternoon fruit platter and aussie lamingtons.  Arriving back in Abell Point Marina between 5-5:30pm your courtesy coach will be waiting to take you back to your accommodation.

Please be aware, this itinerary may change if the winds are strong.  While most of the year we enjoy prevailing S.E trade winds, sailing is also dependent on the winds.
