Reef Sailing – Itinerary
After a leisurely sail up the coast on our Great Barrier Reef Sailing Charter, your first night is spent at Mackay Cay. Snow white sands lapped by crystal clear tropical waters also provide amazing introductory snorkeling opportunities. Enjoy the magnificent corals and brightly coloured tropical fish.
Continue on your Great Barrier Reef Sailing Charter from Mackay Cay up through the northern ribbon reefs. Spend your days snorkeling, fishing and sailing. The northern ribbon reefs are some of the most beautiful and pristine reefs in North Queensland.
The fresh fish you catch can be prepared for your evening meals. As you have a personal chef onboard, flexibility is the key with the onboard catering. In fact, a private charter provides you with significant freedom.
Finally arriving at Lizard Island! The fourth day of your Sailing Charter sees you sail into the famous Cod Hole at Lizard Island. Snorkel with the friendly giant fish and then sail into Watson’s Bay. Watson’s Bay is your base to explore the very best of Lizard Island. In fact you can also snorkel the lagoon at Watson’s Bay. If you are still feeling energetic you can walk up to Cook’s Look. Another little known fact is that there are other islands around Lizard and plenty of private beaches to explore as well. Our Great Barrier Reef Sailing Charter to Lizard Island allows you enough time to see and participate in a number of fun activities in this tropical paradise.
Finally ,on the sixth day you can continue to explore Lizard Island or just relax aboard. At the end of the day you fly back to Cairns with Hinterland Aviation. Flights cost approximately $350 per person. This is an additional expense.
This charter to Lizard Island is most suited to families with teenage or adult children and for people that want to experience the very best of the Great Barrier Reef.
