Fly over the magnificent Whitsunday Archipelago and land at your island destination.
Settle in with a glass of champagne while the Captain and crew get underway to Neck Bay. Located on Shaw Island, the Bay is part of the Lindeman Islands Group and is less than an hours steam away.
Take your first swim in the heavenly waters or make use of the kayaks and SUP’s. If you’re after a more leisurely pace, sprawl out on the beach or look for unusual polished shells and coral pieces.
Spend a night in the secluded anchorage surround by the sounds of nature. There’s a high chance you’ll have it all to yourself!
Wake up to blissful surrounds and enjoy a tropical breakfast on the aft deck or indulge your senses with a morning swim.
Today we’ll be heading to the iconic Whitehaven Beach just over 45 minutes away. Spend the day strolling along the 7km soft silica sand beach and swim in the crystal clear waters.
If you can muster the energy, take a hike up Hill Inlet and indulge in the breathtaking view of the inlet below; a striking mix of aqua and white swirls.
Late afternoon, we’ll be making our way North to Hook Island to one of the best overnight anchorages in the Whitsundays: Nara Inlet.
Start the day taking in the serenity of Nara Inlet; a secluded bay with tranquil waters surrounded by steep forested hills.
Walk up the short rocky path to the Ngaro cultural site where you will see ancient rock wall paintings and where you can learn about the history of the Ngaro Aboriginal people.
Early afternoon, in just under an hour we’ll cruise to the NE corner of Hook Island to Manta Ray Bay. As the name suggests, this is one of the best spots in the Whitsundays to swim with these magnificent creatures.
Tonight we cruise to the Outer Reef and anchor (approx 3 Hrs).
Bucket List. Wake up floating on one of the 7 Natural Wonders of the world!
Bait Reef is an oasis for viewing a vast array of marine life, including manta rays, turtles and hundreds of fish. This reef is among the most highly sought after coral reef dives in Australia.
The reef hosts many shallow lagoons and coral gardens, which are perfect for beginner divers and snorkelling. For the more experienced diver, explore underwater caves, swim throughs and more in the open water.
Spend the night on the Outer Reef.
Spend the morning diving or exploring the reefs by tender.
If air is more your element, take off on a helicopter tour which will reveal the world-famous and most photographed Heart Reef.
Enjoyed a sumptuous seafood buffet prepared by your onboard Chef and relax for the afternoon on the bow as we make our way back to the Islands.
Langford Island is situated opposite Hayman and is one of the most picturesque Whitsunday Islands with its long sand cay and tropical green bluff at the other end.
Anchor for the night.
Langford Island is a great spot to get out the water toys – paddle boarding, kayaking, wake boarding, jet skiing or perhaps having fun on the giant slide!
Easy access to its fringing reef from the beach and shallow waters are perfect for snorkelling. With the many natural wonders found here, this is also a popular spot to enjoy sun baking and swimming and exploring the island on a low tide.
This is the perfect spot for a beach picnic; enjoy lunch with your feet in the sand!
Late afternoon, ONEWORLD will travel further Sth to Cid Island for the night.
Make the most of your last day by getting up early and tackling the Whitsunday Peak Walk. Challenge yourself with a climb to the ‘roof of the Whitsundays’ and be awestruck by spectacular panoramic vistas.
If a more relaxed start is in order, a short half hour cruise will take you to Dent Island. Here you can enjoy a final swim or a quiet walk so you can appreciate the magnificent ocean views.
From Dent Island it’s an easy transit back to Hamilton Island where we will bid you adieu. The Captain and crew will ensure that you get comfortably to the next leg of your journey!
