1. Airlie Beach: Whitsunday Islands 2-Day Sailing Tour
On this unique sailing tour, experience nature's finest while you cruise through the Whitsunday Islands. Relax with a knowledgeable crew at your side and marvel at the unblemished beauty of these 72 islands. Known for the Great Barrier Reef, let yourself be enchanted by the islands' vivid colors. Set out from Airlie Beach to begin your sailing adventure. Take in the turquoise and azure waters of this tropical paradise, hugging the curve of white sandy beaches, as you make your way to the Whitsundays. Along the way, pause for snorkeling in stunning spots, including Hill Inlet Lookout. While on board, enjoy the panoramic views and relax on the spacious deck. Tame your appetite with local produce from the Whitsundays: crunchy salads, tropical fruit, and homemade Spaghetti Bolognese for dinner, all freshly prepared by the lovely crew onboard. Sip on a cool refreshment as a hazy orange sunset adorns the horizon. Once the stars have taken center stage and the ocean is glistening with moonlight, settle into your bed for the night and let the music of the waves gently lapping at the keel lull you to sleep. In the morning, it's time for more exploring. After a hearty breakfast, don your wetsuit once more and dive in the water around Whitehaven Beach to experience the Great Barrier Reef up close. Teeming with wildlife, revel in the sheer beauty of the underwater world as you snorkel and explore. Towards the end of the second day, depart from the tropical oasis of the Whitsundays to arrive back at Airlie Beach and conclude your tour in the late afternoon.
