Day 2: Whitsunday Islands full day

Stop At: Whitsunday Islands, Queensland, Australia
Make your morning coffee and sit outside to take in the stunning view. The crew will pick up the anchor and bring you to Tongue bay to take you across to the island. Once everyone is ready you'll take a guided bush walk up to Hill Inlet Lookout to take in the magnificent view before heading down to Whitehaven Beach to explore.

Lunch back on board as you make way North. Stop off for your first snorkel opportunity! Get your suits and gear on and let the crew take you to one of the best snorkel spots in the Whitsundays. Take in the amazing coral and tropical fish. After everyone has finished, head around the island to another snorkel location and jump in to see if you can see anything different! Keep a look out for turtles below and sea eagles above. The crew will pull out the paddle boards for you to enjoy and take advantage of a different angle to watch the marine life.

After snorkelling, have some snacks back on board and sail to your next location. Possibly a stop on a deserted island sand spit or enjoy a dip in the spa pool on the foredeck in another beautiful cove. Enjoy sunset drinks again and discuss your favourite part of the day over dinner.
Duration: 22 hours

Stop At: Whitehaven Beach, 4802 Australia
Find out what makes Whitehaven Beach on of the most famous beaches in the world. Is it the unique white silica sand, the sheer size of it or the ever changing inlet? Decide for yourself as you explore the hidden nooks and crannies of the beach's north end.

If you feel like trying another activity, make use of the paddle boards again.

after everyone has had enough time in the water, help the crew to set the sails for the last time. Pull up that main sail, and even have a go steering the yacht.

Unfortunately, we were stuck in the Whitsundays and our 2 night/3 day boat tour was cancelled less than 24 hours in advance. I am blessed to have found other options, thanks in NO part to the Explore Whitsundays team, but they did not provide me with other realistic options

Jessica, we appreciate your frustration. Yes the decision to cancel the trip was unfortunate and not an easy decision to make. When we spoke with you on the phone we offered all the alternative options that were available, including a cabin upgrade and supporting any costs involved with changing flights. Unfortunately nothing fit in with your plans. It wasn't possible for us to offer you a refund as, as you mentioned, you booked and payed through a travel agent and they were still holding your money. Since you wrote this comment you have informed us that you got a refund from the travel agent that took your booking. We would like to point out that the travel agent you booked through, represents us and many other operators all along the east coast of Australia, however, they are completely independent from us. When you mention that the manager was too busy to speak with you, we believe that is slightly unfair as he was in a scheduled meeting and rang you back immediately after it finished. I’m sorry that we weren’t able to get you out on a trip after giving you the best options possible, it was not the result we wanted either.
