Langford & Hook Island
Hook Island and Langford Reef are two of the more beautiful anchorages in the Whitsundays due to their proximity to some of the best snorkelling spots in the area. Perfectly positioned to allow for a smooth sail from Airlie Beach you only need travel 16 miles before arriving at your destination, allowing more time to enjoy the underwater coral gardens of the Great Barrier Reef Marine Park. Dotted close by are the islands of Hayman, Black, Bird and Arkhurst making for a stunning and picturesque view over the Coral Sea.
Langford Island is directly opposite the famous Hayman Island resort. As a small island its beauty lies in the long and narrow sand spit that connects with the island at low tide. Along this narrow sand spit is fringing reef and a popular spot for green sea turtles.
Hook Island offers many of the better snorkel spots in the area such as Cockatoo Point, Anchor Point, the Keyhole and Baird Point. Its west facing aspect also makes it a great option on windier days creating a sheltered and calm bay in the lee of the predominant south-easterly trade winds.
