Southern Cross will depart Coral Sea Marina and set sail for the Whitsunday Islands. With no set itinerary, your skipper is free to take you to the best spots for the wind and tides.
You’ll stop to snorkel over beautiful fringing reef, amongst hundreds of colourful fish of all varieties and perhaps even a turtle!
You’ll take a walk to Hill Inlet Lookout where you can take in the stunning views of Whitehaven Beach and Hill Inlet’s famous swirling sands, as well as spending time on the beach to explore, swim or take in the sun with a good book.
In the evening, your skipper will find a calm anchorage so you can enjoy a restful night’s sleep after an action packed day. Unwind and watch the sunset with new friends and a glass of wine, while your hosts prepare a hearty meal for you.
The next day, get up early, watch the sunrise and enjoy some breakfast before heading off for another day full of new adventures.
After lunch you’ll start making your way back to port, taking in the beautiful sights of the islands and building some wonderful memories to take home with you!
