Itinerary

What activities can I do on this Whitsunday sailing trip?

This is your Great Barrier Reef tour on a Whitsundays sailing safari so you can choose just how much or how little you would like to do depending on how your mood takes you and how active you feel like being. 

Bushwalking

Your knowledgeable guides can take you on a tour into the forests and to stunning look outs. 

Learn about Aboriginal culture and the indigenous inhabitants at the Ngaro Sea Trial cultural site, swim in rainwater pools and crystal waterfalls. 

Walk to one of the most amazing views in the world of Whitehaven Beach. 

Beach Games and Activities

Join the crew in beach fun and games.  Play volleyball, beach cricket or just enjoy beachcombing on the pristine beaches.

Sailing

What a great opportunity whilst you are on a sailing vessel to learn about sailing.

Under the expert tutelage of the crew you will learn how to pull up the sails and have time on the helm steering.

In-water activities

You’ll certainly not wish to be out of the water for long when you see the amazing diversity of exotic fish and coral gardens showcased in the clear aquarium-like conditions of the Great Barrier Reef.

Whether you are a beginner or have a little more experience, the knowledgeable crew will help you to master the techniques involved so you can explore and get the most enjoyment from your safari activities.

At each stop you will be advised on the best places to snorkel and where best marine life is.

All snorkelling equipment is provided with the tour and the crew will ensure that all masks and fins fit properly.  

If you don’t swim then buoyancy aids are provided to support you in the water.

Of course, if you just want a quick, cooling dip off the back of the boat in the crystal clear warm tropical waters then that’s fine too!

Keeping dry activities

For a more relaxed experience you can choose just to laze on the decks of the boat and soak up the tropical sun or why not take a kayak to the nearest pristine beach and sunbathe or read on golden sands to the sound of gentle lapping waves.

If you have bought your own wine and beer then have a toast over the azure waters and under the warming sun as you celebrate another day in paradise. 

Sea Kayaking

As you anchor in secluded bays, kayaking is the perfect way of exploring your pristine surroundings.

The tour has double seating ocean kayaks, so you can go off and explore with a friend.

The waters in the bays are tranquil, so you won’t have any adverse conditions to contend with. 

Paddle over translucent crystal waters and you won’t need a mask to see the beautiful coral formations and the myriad of colourful fish darting under your oars as you paddle.
