Check your ticket. Your pick up location and time are on your ticket.
If you are making your own way, be at Northern End of Abell Point Marina, near the Kiosk Cafe and roundabout, by the check-in time. Please don’t be late.
Once the paperwork is finished you will be introduced to your crew and escorted to your vessel.
Passengers are encouraged to lend a hand heaving on lines or taking a turn on the helm if you so desire. You can freely move around the vessel and take advantage of the cushioned seating. During the passage through the Whitsunday Islands, Providence V crew will point out various points of interest and discuss the history, flora and fauna of the Whitsundays for those who are interested.
Once anchored at your snorkelling site the crew will give you a snorkelling safety briefing, fit you with your snorkelling gear then it’s into the warm waters (average yearly water temp 26c) to explore the coral and swim with the tropical fish and maybe a turtle. Can’t swim well… no worries. Your crew will fit you out with either a buoyancy vest or other flotation device to enjoy snorkelling the Whitsundays fringing reefs.
Leaving our snorkel site it’s a short trip to Hill Inlet. Explore the swirling sands of Hill Inlet and take a leisurely walk through sub tropical rain forests to the famous Hill Inlet lookout. Great selfie and photo opportunities here. Take a bush walk, swim in the crystal clear waters or just laze around on the white silica sands.
After snorkelling we set sail for home at Airlie Beach. Afternoon tea will be served en-route to Airlie Beach. This is not just a sail back to port but a tour of the Whitsunday Islands; the views of the Islands are breathtaking. On arrival to the Port you will be escorted to your courtesy bus to take you back to your accommodation to look back on a great day out with Providence V.
