On the Northeast coast between Queensland and the Great Barrier Reef lie the "100 Magic Miles" of the Whitsunday Islands. They offer all the fun of the "Land Down Under" with warm air and sea, fabulous beaches, and moderate winds. Our itinerary will allow for a side trip to the Great Barrier Reef, home of the best diving and snorkeling in the world.
Tucked between Australia's tropical Queensland peninsula and the protective fringe of the Great Barrier Reef, you'll discover 70 islands and countless anchorages linked by short and relaxing hops. It's easy to be comfortable in this warm climate with trade winds of 10 to 25 knots and line-of-sight navigation. At every point of the compass, you'll find sights you'll remember for a lifetime. Evolution took a unique and colorful course in this remote continent. From delicate whelks to majestic whales, marine life is abundant and amazing in this island-flecked sea.
The lively home of kangaroos and koalas welcomes sailors with the dazzling reef of Hayman Island's Blue Pearl Bay, rich with remarkably friendly sea life. Sail to Whitehaven Beach and bask on a four-mile stretch of pure-white sand and admire the unspoiled beauty of this high-peak island. Sail into the two-mile deep gorge at Nara Inlet into a forest abundant with Australian Cockatoos and other fascinating birdlife. For the ultimate Oz Adventure, summon a seaplane for a spectacular flight to the planet's incomparable coral wonder -- the Great Barrier Reef. Watch the undersea panorama pass below from the comfort of a glass-bottomed boat, or swim and snorkel through the vast shimmering abundance of life and color.
If you care to extend your charter, venture south to the modern Laguna Keys Resort and enjoy a round on their 18-hole golf course. The metropolitan destinations of Sydney and Cairns offer days of adventure and wonder. The coast to the north bristles with world-class resorts and swift dive catamarans, all drawn to the Great Barrier Reef -- the largest coral formation on the planet.
