Itinerary

3 Day 2 Night Dive - Snorkel - Sail

We always like to meet our guests the day before we set off on our 3 day 2 night diving and sailing adventure so we can give you advice on all the things you need to bring along for the journey.

Upon checking in, we will provide you with a souvenir environmental bag to pack your belongings in for the sailing trip.

We ask that you only take this bag on board with you as your luggage so make sure you trim down what you are taking to ensure it all fits in as there is limited space on the boat.

Traveling on board our 16.5m ketch, you will get to see the best parts of the Whitsundays with like minded guests who are there for the scuba diving and snorkelling and not the partying.

You will have the chance to explore the Whitsunday Islands as you sail, snorkel, dive, and bushwalk, you will visit the icons of the Whitsundays including Whitehaven Beach, as well as a cruise to the Outer Barrier Reef, some 2-3 hours beyond the islands.

Scuba Diving is definitely a main focus on board our sailing boat and the crew will ensure that even first time scuba divers feel safe and are able to enjoy the splendor of our magnificent coral reefs.

The crew love to dive and want everyone to try scuba diving so they offer the first scuba dive for free!

This will allow you to relax with the dive equipment, feel comfortable under water if it is the first time, and of course improve your abilities for future diving.

The crew on board are all fully qualified Dive Instructors and Divemasters.

Please note that scuba diving is subject to age, medical questionnaire and conditions. 

Freshly prepared breakfast, lunch and dinner is provided with enough variety to keep you satisfied.

Our dive boat is a fully licensed vessel with an onboard bar (no BYO) with soft drink, chips and chocolates also available for purchase.
