Make your own way to the port at Airlie Beach in time for an early morning departure. After picking up the rest of the passengers, set sail around 8:20am and soak up the scenery as you cruise around the Whitsunday islands, part of the UNESCO World Heritage listed Great Barrier Reef.
The first stop of the day is at Whitehaven Beach, where you’ll have time to enjoy swimming and snorkeling (snorkeling equipment and instruction provided). Continue to Chalkies Beach, where you can snorkel amid colorful corals and schools of tropical fish right off the beach.
Re-fuel with a hearty barbecue lunch served on-board, then spend time relaxing on the beach, joining in beach games, or swimming, before heading back to Hamilton Island. You’ll have around 1.5 hours of free time on Hamilton Island to take in the highlights, before being returned to the port at Airlie Beach or Daydream Island.
