Set sail for the Great Barrier Reef on a 65 foot yacht with a crew dedicated solely to your small group. Enjoy intimacy, flexibility and personal service not available on larger boats.

Snorkellers will delight in viewing the incredible array of life and colours that exist just below the surface.Snorkellers can also take the opportunity to try an introductory scuba dive. Scuba divers can log up to five dives in the two days, including a phenomenal night dive on the reef.

In the evening, the crew offers up a hearty meal, good conversation and perhaps a round of karaoke. Have the option to sleep on the deck under the stars.

On the sail back to civilization, look out for dolphins swimming and playing alongside the boat, while in the winter season both humpback and minke whales may make an appearance.
