The Adventure – Follow your very own itinerary on your self-catered catamaran

A convenient airport pick up will see you arriving in style and comfort at Coral Sea Marina & Resort, where you will enjoy a warm welcome on board. Afterwards, why not retire to the Ocean Club with a bottle of sparkling wine and a fruit platter, before spending your first night on board your catamaran. Your briefing will commence at 8am on Saturday. After the briefing, you will set sail through the Great Barrier Reef and be able to tick one of the 'Seven Wonders of the World' off your bucket list.

Schedule your sailing adventure around the time of the year that suits you: Winter in the Whitsundays is still wonderfully warm so why not book your adventure right now? Choose to witness the spectacular whale-watching season from June to August. The calm and protected waters of the Whitsundays creates 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. November to February offers the best sailing conditions; April through June for the mildest conditions.

Want longer to explore? Set sail for 12, unforgettable days on board your dreamy catamaran.

Create your own menu during your experience. You can pre order all shopping online with Whitsunday Provisioning, with all supplies delivered straight to your boat on day one. Or you can shop and pick up your provisions from the local supermarkets using the 11 seater van that will collect you from the airport. While on your trip you can catch your own meals each day and cook up a feast in the onboard kitchen or outdoor BBQ. Picture yourself, cool drink in hand, as you cast a line waiting to catch the night's feast!
