Day 1: Explore Whitehaven Beach and Hill Inlet Lookout

Feel the excitement as we set sail from Coral Sea Marina. Glide through the turquoise waters towards our first stop, Tongue Bay, on Whitsunday Island. Get ready for an awe-inspiring bush walk to Hill Inlet Lookout. Capture stunning photos of the swirling white sands and turquoise waters of Whitehaven Beach, one of the world’s most photographed beaches.
Walk down to Whitehaven Beach and feel the almost pure silica sand between your toes. Relax, explore, and let the beauty of this paradise wash over you.
Back on board, enjoy a delightful morning tea as we sail to our first snorkel spot. Dive into the vibrant underwater world, swim among colourful corals, and maybe even spot a turtle!
As the day winds down, we’ll anchor in a picturesque bay. Enjoy sunset snacks and a drink while chatting with your fellow travellers and soaking in the beauty of the Whitsundays. End the day with a hearty dinner prepared by our friendly crew, using fresh, local ingredients.

Day 2: Dive into the Underwater Wonderland

Wake up to a delicious breakfast and gear up for another snorkeling adventure. Dive into the colourful underwater world, spot tropical fish, and maybe even see a turtle! After a morning of snorkeling, relax on the beach or take a swim.
After a refreshing swim, it’s time to jump back into the clear waters and explore more vibrant coral reefs. Enjoy a cup of tea before heading to another beautiful spot for more swimming, snorkeling, or beach fun.
Enjoy a leisurely lunch on board, savoring tasty dishes prepared by our crew. Reflect on the incredible experiences as we set sail back towards Airlie Beach, arriving by 4 PM.
