Port Douglas Private Charter Yacht 2 Day 1 Night Sail Itinerary Example

Opal Reef or 3rd Sister Reef ( slightly less distance )

Day 1.

Departing from Port Douglas in Tropical North Queensland, Australia we begin our private charter liveaboard sailing adventure in the morning and head off for our destination that is located 28 nautical miles offshore on the Outer Great Barrier Reef.

Our sailing time is approximately 4 hours and a great opportunity to troll for Mackerel or Tuna along the way.

Opal reef is a premium Outer Reef location, with dozens of amazing snorkel sites to explore.

On this reef alone you can expect to see over 400 species of colourful coral, reef sharks, stingrays, large fish such as the beautiful and friendly Humphead Maori Wrasse, and the occasional sea turtles.

We will be spending our first night sleeping on the Great Barrier Reef with a beautiful coral garden directly behind the Yacht.

At Opal Reef there may be a bit of current and we often engage in exciting ‘drift snorkels’ using our high speed tender.

If you are feeling active you may wish to have a go at stand up paddle boarding, try your luck at fishing, or simply relax and unwind on the decks of the beautiful catamaran in the tropical sunshine.

In the evening our guests just love sitting on the upper decks and gazing at the skyline as the sun sets in the East providing a kaleidoscope of colours across the sky and on the ocean.

After a few re-dinner drinks it is now time to be treated to a delicious meal cooked by your personal French chef.

After a bit of conversation it’s now time to head to your individual cabins for a good night’s sleep and be rocked gently by the waves until you are in a deep sleep.

Day 2.)

Make sure you are up early to witness a magnificent sunrise over the Great Barrier Reef and enjoy a snorkel to see all the activity going on under the water before you enjoy a hearty breakfast.

After breakfast there is plenty of time for another snorkel session or two before a beautiful lunch is presented and we begin our leisurely sail home to Port Douglas.
