Discover the tropical paradise of the Whitsundays with this two day sailing tour. Visit the world-famous Whitehaven Beach, snorkel and explore spectacular reefs, watch picture-perfect sunsets, star gaze and hang out with your new mates on deck. Perfect for the young or young at heart!
Day 1: Meet the crew and your fellow passengers at Coral Sea Marina and begin the exciting journey towards the spectacular Whitsunday Islands! You will arrive at Tongue Bay in time for a delicious lunch before embarking on a short bush walk up to Hill Inlet Lookout. Prepare to be mesmerised by panoramic vistas of Whitehaven Beach and the ever-changing swirling silica sands and turquoise waters caused by the tides. After you've got the perfect Instagram shot, you'll head down to the beach and enjoy three free hours to explore, swim and relax. When it comes time to re-board the boat, you'll sail to the overnight anchorage location and be treated to sunset snacks followed by dinner and dessert. Spend the evening hanging out on deck and having some drinks with your new found friends. Mats are also provided for star gazing and sleeping on deck if you wish.
Day 2: Rise and shine for a delicious breakfast before setting sail to the first snorkel location. You can choose to get involved and help hoist the sails or to simply sit back, relax and soak in the views. At the chosen snorkel location, you will gear up and take the plunge to discover the magical underwater world below. Next up, head to Langford Island for some beach time, more snorkelling and lunch. The tour will have you visiting one more snorkel location before making the scenic journey back to Airlie Beach. If you happen to be staying in Airlie for another night, freshen up at your chosen accommodation and then meet your group for an epic after party! The crew will have a reserved table waiting, plus exclusive meal deals and drink discounts.
