Get an early start for your full-day tall ship cruise, which departs from Airlie Beach for your glide through the gorgeous Whitsundays Passage.
Set sail after a short safety briefing and perhaps lend the crew a hand and help to raise the sails, or simply relax and snack on morning tea that includes chocolate cake and biscuits.
Relax in the sun or shade on the spacious deck of the tall ship Legend Derwent Hunter as you sail through protected waters and pass by fringing reefs. Keep an eye out for wildlife such as osprey, eagles and turtles and hear stories from the knowledgeable crew about regional Aboriginal history.
Spend the day sailing, snorkeling, beachcombing and soaking up the beauty of this tropical paradise. Your spacious vessel glides across the Coral Sea to a private mooring at Langford Reef and Bali Hai, prime snorkeling destinations in this part of the Great Barrier Reef. Using the provided snorkeling gear and wetsuit, snorkel around the colorful coral reefs that is home to a variety of marine life. The crew provides assistance for first-time or inexperienced snorkelers.
In addition to morning tea, savor a delicious buffet lunch with cold meats, salads and tropical fruit, and and afternoon cheese and fruit platter. You also have the option to purchase drinks from the onboard bar (own expense).
At the end of a day in paradise, your tall ship returns to Airlie Beach where your tour ends.
