Private charter from Hamilton Island for 4 – 8 hours for one of the most amazing snorkel tours in the Whitsunday Islands Our yacht is licensed to carry 50 guests, but we prefer to make our Hamilton Island yacht charters more exclusive to small groups of only 25 guests for everyone’s comfort.

We are experts on the best reef locations to see brilliant corals and marine life on the reef as we have been sailing the Whitsunday Islands for 30 years.

We can guarantee you will be amazed especially when our onboard Conchological expert takes you on personalised snorkel tours and reef walks to educate you about the molluscs and other fascinating marine life on the Great Barrier Reef of Australia.

Our custom built yacht is a perfect option for very small groups of up to 25 guests or a few couples and friends to get together for a special day to explore the reef in style on a fully crewed private charter yacht.

Each one of our full day snorkel tour cruises that depart from Hamilton Island are planned so that there is ample time to visit the best of locations for snorkeling and sightseeing according to the weather conditions prevailing.

We are one of the select private charter yachts that has been given a Grandfather licence to explore all of the unique coral lagoons, coves, island and beaches which means we see the most rare snorkel sites that no other boats are permitted to go.

On each one of our day charters from Hamilton Island we prefer to leave early in the morning so we can show you as much of the Great Barrier Reef as possible or if you prefer we are also happy to leave later in the morning or early afternoon.  

Guests may charter the yacht from a minimum of 4 hours up to 8 hours for a one day private charter snorkel tour. 


Dependant on the time of our private yacht departure from Hamilton Island we may take our guests to see the famous Whitehaven Beach and Hill Inlet, Gary’s Lagoon and beautiful Bait Reef or Hazelwood Island.

These are just some of our favourite snorkelling locations in the magical Whitsunday Islands.  

Guests can sit back on our big spacious yacht and enjoy the pleasure of sailing under the yachts big sheets reminiscent of a bygone era.

If feeling inspired by the fresh salt air guests can try their hand at taking the wheel and experiencing true “big boat” sailing on the smooth waters of Australia’s Great Barrier Reef.

Lynne is your personal snorkelling guide and Conchological expert for the day and she will lead you to places where friendly fish will eat right out of your hand and swim up to your mask to look you right in the eye as if to say “Welcome to my world”!
