Itinerary

Whitsunday Getaway 2-Day, 2-Night Sail

Day One 

Your Whitsunday Island sailing tour begins when you arrive at the Airlie Beach marina at 2.30pm and waiting to welcome you aboard the magnificent catamaran are your skipper and hostess.

After an onboard vessel briefing, it’s time to explore the very best the Whitsundays have to offer.

Cruise effortlessly across turquoise waters toward your first night of rest and relaxation amongst the islands and enjoy pre-dinner drinks as you get to know some new friends.

At this quiet anchorage, your hostess will prepare your first sumptuous feast.

After your meal, kick back and relax before a restful night’s sleep while Getaway floats peacefully in her secluded anchorage.

Day Two

Don’t sleep in – there’s too much to see! The crew are up early to prepare your fabulous continental breakfast.

Then you will head off to visit the vast silica sands of magnificent Whitehaven Beach. See just why this beach is rated the most beautiful in the world.

Wading through crystal clear water over brilliant fine white sand with the ocean vista before you is an experience you won’t forget. Swim, snorkel or laze on the beach.

You may never want to leave! But after a superb smorgasbord, you will be off to visit one of the many islands fringed by the stunning coral reef.

After a full day of snorkelling, swimming or simply relaxing and soaking up the views, your palatial cruise boat drifts gently to another spectacular anchorage.

Day Three

Your last breakfast onboard and an opportunity for one last swim or snorkel. After morning tea, we will set sail for home.

On the trip back to Airlie Beach, lounge around on the huge forward nets and enjoy the scenery.
