Day 1 : Airlie Beach to Whitsundays
Itineraries are flexible and this itinerary is an example only. Trips will differ depending on the prevailing breezes and tides. Itineraries are planned by the Captain considering the safety and wellbeing of guests and crew. If you have a special place that you would like to visit, they will do their very best to see what can be done. This tour offers time to explore the islands, including time to relax at the magnificent Whitehaven Beach, walk to famous Hill Inlet Lookout and experience two snorkeling stops on the fringing coral reefs which extend right from the edge of the islands. This itinerary will cover around 100kms around the islands and is achieved in this time due to the sailing performance and ability of your Maxi Yacht to sail faster than other charter yachts can go, even when they use a motor, which is also really friendly for the environment as we use wind power. You'll be fed well with afternoon tea, pre-dinner snacks and dinner today. Bring Your Own alcohol so long as it's not glass. Spend your first night of fun under the stars of the Southern Hemisphere.
