Should you have a larger group we have another private charter yacht that can cater for 15 guests and we could then sail in a flotilla  across the Great Barrier Reef and visit reefs around Magnetic Island and other outlying destinations on request.

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.

She may not be a luxurious 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.

Our 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.

Call our Barrier Reef Australia experts and let us plan your private charter boat tour on Australia’s famous Great Barrier Reef.
