Jump on board our 60 foot Adams Ketch for a 1 night, 2 day or 2 night, 3 day liveaboard private charter snorkel tour on the Great Barrier Reef from Magnetic Island. Plan your bespoke private charter snorkel tour with us now to explore the outer edges of the Great Barrier Reef.

Whilst we specialise in hosting 4 guests on our overnight extended liveaboard snorkel tours we can certainly cater for up to 5 guests ensuring a comfortable and memorable Great Barrier Reef tour visiting remote islands and reefs around Magnetic Island and other outlying Great Barrier Reef destinations on request.

Some of our favourite places are around the Palm Islands far away from any other commercial boats or crowds, and most of the time we have these pristine reefs all to ourselves to snorkel and enjoy.

Hinchinbrook Islands are another popular area we like to explore along with the outer edges of the Great Barrier Reef where the water visibility is as clear as a bottle of gin.

Should you wish to charter our yacht from other Great Barrier Reef regions such as Airlie Beach, Mission Beach, Cairns, Port Douglas, Lizard Island or the Whitsundays, relocation fees will apply.

Magnetic Island Charter Boat - Sailing - Snorkelling - Liveaboard

She may not be a luxurious private charter boat but she is certainly designed to be spacious and comfortable enough for us to treat our guests for one of the most amazing snorkel tours of their life on the famous Great Barrier Reef in Australia.

Should you wish to explore the waters around Magnetic Island on your private charter boat tour there are over 23 bays that we may call into and you may opt to hop off the boat to explore and take some bush walks or have a picnic on the beach.

You may even request to have a sunset soiree on the sand so you may watch the sun dip down behind the mountains and light up the blue sky with brilliant hues of pink, red, grey and blue as the darkness falls and the moon comes out on shift to take over the enchantment of the moment. This is one of our most favourite ways to end a good day of sailing and snorkelling on the reef.

Magnetic Island is 70% National Park and home to some really cute native Australian animals such as koalas, rock wallabies, brush tail possums, lizards and a huge variety of birds, some of which are migratory birds from other countries.

You may also do some other tour activities on Magnetic Island such as horse riding, jet skiing or pop into the shops and cafes and maybe pick up some ice creams and treats for the family.    

Our private charter boat also provides in water toys such as Stand Up Paddle boards to keep your bodies core in shape, kayaks for a good work out and boom netting which everyone loves.

During the months of late May early June around 33,000 humpback whales cruise along the east coast of Australia up to the Great Barrier Reef to mate and calve as the ice freezes in the Antarctic.

They then make their way south past us once again to chase the krill as the ice begins to melt in September.

This is a great time to charter the boat specifically for whale watching tours as we are sure to come across some over 2 – 3 days on the Great Barrier Reef.

As we know they are wild migrating animals so whale sightings cannot be realistically guaranteed but it is rare that we do not see them each season to the delight of our onboard guests.

Take a peek here for other whale watching tours on the Great Barrier Reef. For guaranteed whale sighting tours we recommend this one in Hervey Bay north of Brisbane and the Sunshine Coast.  

Other unique marine life you will encounter on your private boat charter are sea turtles, manta rays, stingrays, Moari Wrasse which are some of the Great Eight attractions on the Great Barrier Reef.
