Day 1 : Day 1 : White Swan
Our friendly crew will pick you up from the meeting area in the Southern End meeting area of Abell Point Marina, just 10 minutes walk from the center Airlie Beach. After being shown your cabin, the boat heads out to sea and you can enjoy your first sail. Sit back, relax, have a drink and get to know your fellow sailors. Snacks get served after sundown. The crew gets busy cooking dinner after you have reached your anchorage for the night. This is usually somewhere central in the Whitsunday Island group in a bay protected from waves.

Day 2 : Day 2 : White Swan
Sleep in and wait for coffee smell to wake you up for breakfast at around 7am. Once breakfast is packed away the boat will head to a good spot to snorkel. This could be Border Island or in one of the bays of Hook Island or somewhere else; this could also happen in the afternoon after visiting Whitehaven Beach and Hill Inlet Lookout. Your skipper will brief you about snorkeling, gear and marine life. A rescue tender boat will be with you throughout your entire snorkeling time. In the afternoon after lunch you will arrive at Whitehaven Beach. Pack your beach bag and camera, the view from the Hill Inlet Lookout is always fantastic and afterwards there is plenty of time to hang out on the super squeaky white fine sand of Whitehaven. Another boat voyage will take you to the night time anchorage for your second night. Enjoy the scenery of the islands and some snacks.

Day 3 : Day 3 : White Swan
Sleep in or get into breakfast early in order to maximise your activity time on the last morning of the tour. Relax and sun-bake aboard or enjoy a water-sports activity. Snorkeling is also on the agenda. Or dig into morning tea, or catch up on taking pictures. Take a last jump of the boat before we start heading back to Airlie Beach. An exiting sailing session (depending on wind conditions) brings you back to the mainland. After a journey of around 3 hours you will step onto solid ground again where your crew will be wishing you farewell and Ahoy. Congratulations, you are a sailor now.
