Owner description: Grace is our beautiful purpose built catamaran which takes her lucky crew and guests to the secluded beaches and pristine waters of the Keppel Islands. We spend the morning cruising with the dolphins and turtles of Keppel Bay, then anchor at one of our beautiful coves. Morning/afternoon tea and a full buffet lunch is included as is snorkelling equipment to say hello to our fish that live on our part of the southern Great Barrier Reef Marine Park.

I have lived in the Capricornia region for 24 years. I've done the Keppel experience as a younger " get wrecked at Keppel" traveller and have done larger boat tours of the region.
This was by far the best experience. Vicki and Anthiny made sure all of us had a fabulous day that our winter weather can bring. We were out of the wind for snorkelling and beach adventrues. The food was so yummy I had seconds. My son who is a computer addict had a blast on the deserted beach and we even went in the crystal clear water. ( unheard of in winter on my part!) you get to places the usual boats don't take you to.
I was so impressed I am on the short list for Monday adventies if they need an extra passenger!
If you are looking for a unique experience that is worth every dollar Sail Capricornia is the local experience to take.

What a great day we had sailing with Vicki and Anthony on the Grace 2. From the moment we stepped on board along with our fellow adventurers we were made to feel like old friends. Visited 2 lovely beaches and offered the opportunity to go for walk ashore, cruise over the reef in the dinghy or just sit back and enjoy the view. Great boat, great crew and great company, thanks to all aboard for a fantastic day in such a beautiful place.

Had an amazing day on Grace 2 - lovely host, who were so welcoming! Generally a lovely day as well. 12 people in total on the trip, and was great because we got to spend the whole day as a group, not just with the parties we came with. North Keppel Island was also a great spot to visit.

Thankyou Anthony & Vicki, what a wonderful day you gave us. It is great that you don't have a particular destination in mind until the day. The two beaches you took us to were so beautiful & the time you gave us there was enough to do some exploring. Vicki you are a magician to prepare such wonderful food for us in a small galley, everyone on board enjoyed. Once you are on board you don't have to spend another dollar, everything is provided, tea, coffee, hot chocolate, soft drink, morning & afternoon tea & a very scrumptious buffet lunch, with prawns! We would highly recommend this cruise if anyone is visiting Yeppoon. Tom & Chris from Petrie

Brilliant cruise from the moment we arrived until we left, could not fault one thing about this cruise. Great hosts who made everyone feel welcome. Fantastic snorkeling locations around Great Keppel Island, went to two different locations and was just magic, saw plenty of different colourful fish, sting rays and even a wobegong shark. Plenty of food including morning tea and a BBQ lunch. We were even lucky enough to have a bit of wind and had the sails up for the journey home. Defiantly will go again if get the chance as cannot speak highly enough of the great day and hosts we had and it's very good value for money. Roger.
