1. From Airlie Beach: Whitsundays 3-Night Private Yacht Charter
Cruise around the Whitsunday Islands on this private 4-day charter from Airlie Beach. Discover a stunning array of marine life, snorkel in the best fringing reefs, see artwork from the First Nation in Ngaro Cave, and savor fresh seafood on board. Celebrate as you step on board with sunset nibbles and a glass of bubbles and set sail across the Whitsunday Passage for your first quiet anchorage away from the crowds. Settle into your cabins - all with en suites. Dine on deck under the stars from local cuisine (Barramundi, fresh salads, crusty bread, and NQ Tiger prawns - to name a few items on the menu). Make a walk up to the Ngaro Cave to see artworks from the Aboriginal peoples with many interpretations of their lives. Then, head for Whitehaven depending on the winds and the tides, and spend the morning or afternoon luxuriating in the white silicate sand and splashing around in the turquoise waters in sheltered bays. Visit the best spots to see Manta rays and walk up to the Hill Inlet lookout to see why Whitehaven Beach has been voted one of the best 10 beaches in the world. Savor lunch on board, before heading off to your first snorkeling spot. Spend the afternoon sailing and relaxing. Drop anchor on a quiet second night and a snorkel with your guide. Feed George the Maori Wrasse and swim alongside. The next morning depending on wind and tide head for more snorkeling spots and beach time at Langford spit. Finally, on day 4, set sail homeward bound across the Whitsunday Passage back to Airlie Beach.
