After you are welcomed aboard by our friendly crew, the lines are thrown away and you're underway. As the sails are raised you settle in on the teak decks for the ride. Our crew take this opportunity to guide you through some safety and snorkeling briefs as you leave the bustling mainland behind… and the magic of sailing begins to set in with the gentle lap of the ocean against the hull and a frothy trail in your wake.
The only vessel in the Whitsundays to offer unique kayaking adventures, a Summertime voyage promotes eco friendly exploration of the islands as you glide quietly into hidden inlets or secret beaches and soak up the ever changing but always magnificent scenery. This would have to be one of the worlds most ideal paddling playgrounds and these 2 person kayaks make for the perfect Whitsundays expedition! Our kayaks open up a whole new world accessible only to shallow water craft. In action you will paddle leisurely around picturesque inlets, watching for the odd turtle or stingray and as the crystal clear water shallows all types of fish can been seen below as you paddle past ancient trees - and watch out for the beauty of a magnificent sea eagle soaring above! Alternately, embarking on a longer blue water expedition from one cove to another with the Coral Sea stretching endlessly before you is an exhilarating and breathtaking experience. There's so much wildlife to see and endless waterways to explore in the Whitsundays, many accessible only by shallow water craft. Our kayaks are extremely easy to paddle and are very comfy. It's a great way to explore with minimal human impact and our crew possess an intimate knowledge of the islands, their wildlife and ecology. As they guide you through this ancient marine wonderland, you not only enjoy a lot of fun and some amazing scenery but also gain valuable insights into the unique ecology and wildlife of this amazing island chain.
