The perfect private charter sailing boat from Cairns takes up to 35 of your closest business associates, friends or family on a private dive and snorkelling tour to Pinnacle Reef just off Green Island.
Chartering your own yacht for the day is not out of the question when travelling in large family groups or with groups of friends when visiting Cairns and the Great Barrier Reef as it makes the day just that much more special when the catering and itinerary is all planned according to your personal requests.
Our 16mt (52ft) private charter yacht in Cairns is available for corporate and conference groups from 25-35 passengers (dependant on requirements) making it quite comfortable and spacious as she sails across to a private, pristine part of the world famous Great Barrier Reef known as Pinnacle Reef, located just one kilometre from Green Island.
Our yacht is the only private charter boat to be permitted to moor in this location as it is an exclusively licenced dive site for our charter boat and you can be assured the coral reef below will be totally unspoilt and the marine life always in abundance due to the low impact of visitors to this reef.
