The Charter Boat Itinerary

7:00 — Private Charter Coach Transfers

We will collect your group of private charter guests with our courtesy bus from most registered accommodation places in Airlie Beach, or you can make your own way to the Coral Sea Marina (formerly Abell Point Marina). Sorry no Airbnb pick-ups.

For self- drivers park at the southern end of the marina and meet at the Kiosk Café at 7.10am sharp

7:30 — Private Charter Boat Sail to Hayman Island

On leaving the Airlie Beach Marina, guests may relax and make yourself a tea or coffee as we head to our first scuba diving and snorkelling destination.

9:30 – Snorkel or Scuba Dive in Blue Pearl Bay

Blue Pearl Bay at Hayman Island is what we call fringing reef and here the coral is extensive with all sorts of hard and soft corals that are home to a myriad of marine animals.

We will be spending a good part of 2 hours scuba diving and snorkelling this reef.

This is where the certified scuba divers and introductory divers enter the underwater world of the Great Barrier Reef. 

Snorkelling tuition is given to those guests who have never tried it before

Snorkeling, diving and being part of the fish feeding at Blue Pearl Bay is an absolute highlight of our luxury private charter yacht sailing trip around the Whitsunday Islands.

12:00 – Snorkel at Langford Island

Langford Island is really a long skinny sand cay in the middle of the Great Barrier Reef and the amount of beach here is very tide dependant.

We spend approximately 45 minutes to 1 hour on this sand cay.

Again guests may enjoy snorkeling or scuba diving, or walk along this pretty sand cay and admire the views across to Hayman Island, Black Island (Bali Hai), Arkhurst Island, Bird Island  Hook Islands and Stonehaven.
