Itinerary

And how does our trip look?

The itinerary offered onboard is completely flexible due to the trip being dependent on weather. In saying this, the itinerary can change from trip to trip to ensure that your Snorkelling and Diving experience is in optimal conditions.

On your trip, you will get to visit Bait Reef. This Reef Location, protected from fishing, offers a rich diversity of marine life. When we moor within the lagoon area of this reef, we are sheltered from the winds making your stay and diving more comfortable.

Spend an afternoon on Whitehaven Beach to explore the vast white silicon-rich sands that never get hot beneath your feet. While you take in the clear azure waters that gently lap the beach, you will feel that real sense of peace in paradise.

Visit Hill Inlet Lookout and witness the everchanging swirling sands at low tide.

Then visit Hook Island which offers some of the best diving and snorkelling around the inner islands of the Whitsunday Island Group.
