Chill out in the shade or or sunbake on the large front decks and take in the scenery as the crew sail as a flotilla across the calm waters around the Whitsunday Islands. 

The crew prides itself on spending more time exploring the beaches and coves than other Whitsundays sailing boats, so you really get to make the most of your time to see more and experience more!

And, when you are not beach-hopping you can head back and enjoy the air-conditioned interior of the boat to relax and read a book or chat with new found friends. 

The boats also boasts special underwater blue lighting which is great for attracting marine life of a night time.

This relaxing, social snorkelling trip has an exciting itinerary, featuring plenty of time at the southern-end of Whitehaven Beach and Hill Inlet lookout as well as snorkelling to remember!

Day One: Depart Airlie Beach

Depart Airlie Beach at 1.00pm

Lunch will await you as you step onboard and are met by your friendly crew and fellow travellers.

After a briefing from the crew it will be time to relax and take in the 360 degree views as the yacht crosses the Whitsunday Passage and passes by the Mole group of islands making its way to the first location - Hook or Border Island 

After your first afternoon of snorkelling and exploring the Great Barrier Reefs fringing reefs, it’s back onboard for a cold beer and some sunset snacks whilst the boats crew set sail for the overnight anchorage spots of South Whitehaven Beach or Tongue Bay.

Following a tasty evening meal your crew will run an eco slideshow, showing you some photos of what you might see during your Whitsundays sailing tour along with some fun photos of your in water and beach activities that afternoon.

Later, spend some time out on the top deck, lay back and just gaze up at the clear night sky and see if you can quote all the names of the stars and constellations.

Another fun thing to do is to sit quietly on the back deck and watch the fish swim up to the boats attracted to the allure of our underwater blue lights.

This area becomes a hive of activity as the night goes on. 

Day Two: Whitehaven Beach

Today is an exciting day as you will be seeing the world famous Whitehaven Beach.

Once breakfast is over and done with we cruise South Whitehaven Beach where you will be able to explore the beautiful white silica sands of Whitehaven and enjoy a refreshing morning swim.

Our boat crew will take you on a short bush walk to the Hill Inlet lookout for breathtaking views out over the beach and the sandy inlet.

Make sure you bring your cameras along as this is a picturesque setting and great for photo bragging opportunities. 

After lunch on the boats we sail away to spend the afternoon snorkelling two locations around Hook Island.

These snorkelling locations are going to be based on the weather conditions at the time and our choices are Mantaray Bay, Luncheon Bay or Langford Island.

The slide show this evening will be all about your and your antics for the day.  

Day Three: Snorkelling and Sailing to Airlie Beach

After breakfast we sail to our next and very last snorkelling site and then we do some fish feeding at Blue Pearl Bay whilst the crew talk about the types of fish you will see and their underwater habits.

Most of our guests at this time wish they could just keep sailing the Whitsundays for the rest of their lives after being on our 2 day 2 night snorkelling tours, but sadly reality always kicks in with a big thud and we have to all say goodbye and just live on with our memories.

Our boats arrive back into Airlie Beach at around 11.00am and all of our guests leave the boats with new experiences and new friends.
