What We Like
Enjoy full control of your itinerary regardless of what package you choose - tailor your journey to your preferences and opt to sun bake on one of the many pristine beaches of the Whitsunday islands, explore the incredible coral reef of the shallow waters or shop up a storm on Hamilton Island - a world of options and stunningly beautiful landscapes await!
Time your sailing adventure with the spectacular whale watching season from June to September - the calm and protected waters of the Whitsundays create the ideal environment for Humpback and Pilot whales (and occasional Migaloo) to give birth to their young - as a result, magnificent whale sightings are extremely common
Sail through the Great Barrier Reef and tick one of the 'Seven Wonders of the World' from your bucket list - invest in an underwater camera (a disposable one will do) to capture the incredibly colourful fish and stunning coral formations of the reef's remarkable ecosystem

We laughed and sang and danced our way around the Whitsundays to ABBA and didn't want it to end. Switching off and relaxing at Long Island was the best way to end our holiday - Thank you John, we will be back"Portland Roads Customer Testimonial
Seeing the whales each day was a highlight and the sunsets on the boat were beautiful. Whilst we loved Palm Bay and will visit again, we quickly missed our time on the boat and our friendship with Richard (Skip) our skipper"Portland Roads Customer Testimonial
John, as you know this is our third time and it just keeps getting better. Can you pass on a word of thanks to Mike our skipper, he was brilliant and Palm Bay was once again the perfect way to finish this trip"Portland Roads Customer Testimonial
