Spectacular autumn weather

We’ve been loving the weather of late. Beautiful 10-20 knot SE winds have made for excellent sailing up to our northern locations. Guests are enjoying feeling the wind in their hair, whilst sitting in the shade of our giant sails, or finding a sunny spot on deck to soak up some rays.

School holidays were a hit with the kids

We welcomed countless families on board throughout the school holidays in April. We love seeing smiling faces, watching them marvel at the marine life of the Whitsundays, and really enjoyed imparting our knowledge about the fish and coral, in our roles as Eco Guides. They were clearly having a lot of fun!

Not sure about snorkelling?

We’ve got some tools for anyone who is unsure about snorkelling and wants a bit of extra security.

1. noodles! If they want to get in and snorkel, but aren’t strong swimmers, or just want a bit of extra buoyancy, we can provide a noodle to float around on

2. a boogie board with view window – perfect for little kids who aren’t strong swimmers, and hesitant to put their face in the water. The view window gives them a fantastic view into the water below

3. the bathyscope – for those who definitely don’t want to get wet, we can take them in one of our dinghies and have them leaning over the side looking through the bathyscope into the waters below
