Full description
Day 1: Airlie Beach Departure

You will be greeted by your crew at 1:00PM, and once you've been orientated around the vessel, simply relax and take in the scenery as you sail to your first snorkel location. As you head to one of the islands of the Whitsunday Islands you will sail across the Whitsunday Passage and pass the Mole group of islands, before arriving at Hook or Border Island.

After the snorkeling has finished, it will be time to head back on board for a cold drink and some sunset snacks whilst you cruise to your overnight anchorage of South Whitehaven Beach or Tongue Bay (weather permitting). Following dinner, the crew will invite you to view an eco-slide show, showing you some photos of what you may see and observe underwater and also pictures that have been taken whilst snorkeling that day. Later, look for shooting stars, or sit on the back deck and watch the fish swim in and out of the underwater blue lights.

Day 2: Whitehaven Beach/Hill Inlet

After breakfast you will be taken to the magnificent South Whitehaven Beach for a morning swim, where you will be able to explore the beautiful white silica sands of Whitehaven. Later on you will be taken on a short bush walk to the lookout at Hill Inlet where you will be able to overlook the entire beach and and view it in its finest glory. This is a picturesque setting, and is great for photo opportunities. Following the lookout, walk down to Betty's Beach, which is the northern end of Whitehaven Beach.

After lunch you will venture towards the best snorkeling locations. You'll visit two more locations on Hook Island such as Mantaray Bay, Luncheon Bay, or Langford Island for a snorkel with the turtles and a sunset on the sand. That evening you will once again enjoy a slide show of the day's highlights in the water.

Day 3: Final Snorkel and Sail back to Airlie Beach

After breakfast it will be time for a final splash at the last snorkel site. Do some fish feeding at Blue Pearl Bay, this is your last chance to see the amazing under water world of the Whitsunday Islands before you make the journey back to Airlie Beach.
