Itinerary

01

Day 1: Arrive Cairns

Well Good morning Cairns you delightful palm tree paradise. We have two days here to get deep - which may even mean a scuba dive on one of the 7 natural wonders of the world. Whether diving or snorkeling, one things for sure - you’ll be blown away with the beauty of the reed. Spot tiny Nemos, giant Maori wrasse, even reef sharks if you’re lucky. Marie biologists may be on board to answer the inevitable ��what fish is that’ question.

02

Day 2: Cairns

Today is all about ticking off those once in a lifetime bucket list experiences. Think you’ve got what it takes to bungy jump or go whitewater rafting? Prove it – we’ve got optionals lined up that will get your head spinning with adrenaline. #NOREGRETS yo!

03

Day 3: Cairns to the Whitsundays via Townsville

Ready for some coach time fun? Damn right you are when your end destination is the Whitsundays. Bring it!
Tropical Townsville never fails to impress with its Colonial buildings and checkered maritime history. We'll get orientated with the city and grab some lunch before kicking on to Airlie.
Pack your towel and swimmers as we get onboard our private boat and set sail off around the 74 Islands.

04

Day 4: Whitsundays Sailing

Arrive Whitsundays and jump on board the yacht.Swim, snorkel, eat & repeat is pretty much today’s vibe as we make our way around the 74 islands that make up the Whitsundays. Do as much or as little as you want – help the crew wince the sails, snorkel some of the best coral reefs in Australia, laze on the fine silica sands of Whitehaven Beach (cue more pinch yourself moments) – today is all about soaking in the moment and relishing the finer things in life.

05

Day 5: The Whitsundays
