2-Night Whitsunday Islands All-Inclusive Sailing Tour from Airlie Beach
USD 359.64
Overview
Experience the Whitsunday Islands by sailboat on a 3-day sailing cruise that is perfect for adventurous travelers. Visit top destinations such as Whitehaven Beach and Hill Inlet Lookout, go snorkeling at Manta Ray Bay, and soak in the stunning scenery at every stop. Learn about the sailing life and Australia's marine treasures during a memorable all-inclusive tour that is limited to 24 passengers.
What to Expect

Day 1:
Departing from Abell Point Marina Tongarra heads towards Tongue Bay.  As the sun sets over the ocean, the crew will serve you up a delicious dinner of fish and coleslaw on a bed of mash potato with tiger bread. After a few drinks and a chance to get to know your fellow passengers, you have the choice of sleeping either inside the boat or out on the deck should you prefer to sleep under the starts.

Day 2:
After a yummy continental breakfast and fruit salad the crew will take you by tender to the Hill Inlet Lookout walking trail. The walk meanders through the forest for about 15 minutes before finishing at the spectacular Hill Inlet Lookout! Spend half an hour taking selfies with the swirling sands of Hill Inlet Lookout and then head down to enjoy Whitehaven beach. Keep an eye out for baby sharks and stingrays hiding in the shallows!

After lunch Tongarra will sail north to Manta Ray Bay, so it’s time to relax on the deck and soak up the tropical sun.

Arriving at Manta Ray Bay the crew will give you a lesson on snorkeling before you plunge into the crystal clear waters to meet your many new friends! Here, you will be surrounded by hundreds of different colorful fish and even get to meet the big Maori Wrasse called George.

Then it’s time for some chill out tunes while you nibble on your afternoon snacks.  Enjoy a few drinks and mingle with the other guests. Dinner on the last night is a home cooked spaghetti bolognaise and garlic bread that the crew have prepared fresh for you.

After dinner the night is up to you, either party the night away or lay back and get lost in the beauty of the night sky, spot a shooting star and make a wish to spend the rest of your life doing this.

Day 3:
Wake up with the waves lapping against the shore in the cove and grab some breakfast before plunging into the waters once again to explore the amazing fringing reef or enjoy a ride on our red shark banana boat.

When you've finished snorkeling it’s time to hoist the sails and head back across the Whitsunday passage to Airlie Beach.

The crew will either serve up some fresh made hot dogs (Winter) or a fresh fruit platter (Summer) for you to snack on as you glide across the water on the way home.

I wish Red Cat had a sailing option that's in between the Paradise vs. Tongarra options. I chose the Tongarra experience because I thought it would be so cool to sleep and wake up on a boat in the middle of the ocean, rather than...More
