Whitsundays (4 days)
Great Barrier Reef Adventure - Sun, Sail and Snorkel!
Whitsundays Day 1
We fly into Whitsunday Coast airport and catch a cab 35 mins to Airlie Beach Magnums - a backpacker travel award-winning hostel. We explore on-site with a stroll in the lush grounds then take a wander to the famous Airlie Beach Lagoon, Abel Point Marina for ice cream and check out the Port of Airlie - all within walking distance from the hostel.
After seeing all the local sights, we pick up some ingredients and head back to the hostel which has two kitchens with everything we need to cook up a suitably filling dinner.
Whitsundays Day 2
We get up, get our bags and head to South Village at Abel Point Marina to onboard our boat for a 2 day, 1 night sailing and snorkeling adventure!
We onboard our boat with the following highlights:
- Authentic sailing with an amazing itinerary
- Fun and exciting social tour - very popular tour for 18-35's!
- Get hands-on and learn to sail, or relax on the deck
- 77ft long with a spacious deck and roll out shade awning
- Quality time at Hill Inlet Lookout and Whitehaven Beach
- Snorkelling gear and instruction provided
- All meals are prepared on board by your friendly crew
- BYO Alcohol or soft drinks (soft drinks can also be bought on the boat)
We set sail over to the World Famous Whitehaven Beach and Hill Inlet (part of Hamilton Island) to explore the azure blue waters and pristine white sandy beaches that the Whitsundays is famous for.
Whitsundays Day 3
We start the day early and set sail for our next day of adventure. If you want, you can get hands-on and help with sailing or sit back and relax – it’s up to you! Today we’re on to the best snorkelling spots the Great Barrier Reef Marine Park has to offer.
Once we arrive back at the marina and depart the boat, we are welcome to join the after-party upon return including promo drinks and discounted meals.
After saying goodbye to the friends we made on the boat, we head back to the hostel for one last night before flying back to Sydney in the morning.
Whitsundays Day 4
Today is our last day to explore this paradise! We get to know Airlie Beach better, visit cafés and lookouts, before our afternoon shuttle to the airport.
We make our way back, rich with new connections, photos and memories!
