Sail onto the open waters of the Whitsundays to snorkel through coral reefs and experience the incredible climate of this coastal island chain. This Australia vacation takes you to dive sites across the Whitsundays and stops off at world-famous islands and beaches along the way.
This 3-day Australia vacation takes you through the Whitsundays aboard a purpose-built sailboat.
Your Australia vacation begins in Airlie Beach in the heart of the Whitsundays. The Whitsundays are both an access point to the Great Barrier Reef and an incredible destination in their own right. The island chain has its own microclimate, meaning that the waters hold at 26 degrees Celsius all year round. This makes the Whitsundays an incredibly-attractive place to visit. Luckily, you’ll be able to savour the climate for yourself with a trip aboard Kiana. This sailboat holds a maximum of 14 passengers and has comfortable air-conditioned cabins that offer relaxation at the end of days spent swimming and snorkelling.
Travelling the Whitsundays aboard Kiana, you’ll stop off at multiple diving sites and beaches to explore the marine world beneath the waves. Among these stops, you’ll visit Bait Reef, an outer reef destination that’s protected by law from all forms of fishing, and as such, is a safe haven for all manner of marine life. Snorkel or dive to gaze at the coral reef and spot sea turtles feasting along the ocean floor. You’ll also visit Whitehaven Beach, one of the most gorgeous beaches in the world with its impossibly-pure and fine white sand. Stroll the beach to experience its majesty before taking a bushwalk through Whitsunday National Park and climbing Hill Inlet Lookout for stunning views of the reef. At the end of each day, enjoy the sunset from onboard Kiana with a drink in hand and a delicious dinner to enjoy.
This Australia vacation offers you a world of underwater adventure in one of the most gorgeous environments in the world.
