Is it possible to catch boats between the islands and see a few of them?
My girlfriend and I are exploring the East coast of Australia for approximately 5-6 weeks in late Feb and for the whole of March. obviously this is a lot of ground to cover but we have set aside approximately 4-5 days for Airlie Beach and onwards around the Whitsundays.
If we stay put, where do you think would be the best place to stay? In my mind I have this rather whimsical notion of waking up on amazing beaches and then strolling onto a boat to nip over to a neighbouring island for hopefully not a lot of money.
Is the reality drastically different (i.e. you can only get ferries or you have to backtrack to Airlie each time etc.)
Could anyone give me some help on this. Especially with prices of boats between islands if possible. Any links where I can check out websites?
Thanks. Any help is much appreciated!
