What to Pack
Please pack in a soft small bag. We suggest: swimmers, beach towel, sunscreen, lip balm, sunglasses, hat, jacket or sweater, sandals/joggers/thongs for island walk, toiletries, and any prescribed medicines. There are no shops around the islands, so please pick up important items or treats before arriving at the marina.
(1 dive) Diving is available when we meet up with our rendezvous dive boat Tornado. Whether you are a certified diver or a first time diver, we offer all guests the opportunity to discover the underwater world. With multiple dive locations available, we have the ability to move to the best diving spot on the day. You can pre book a dive at the Explore Whitsundays office in Airlie Beach, or organize with the crew on tour. To guarantee availability we advise pre booking your dive before departure.
Boomerang is a BYO vessel, this means you are able to bring your own alcohol onto the tour (no glass or red wine). Drinking water is included throughout your tour, however soft drinks are available for purchase on board. The crew will keep a tab and you can pay at the end of your tour.
Don't worry, we supply swimming noodles and additional floatation as required. We will do a risk assessment on every guest before entering the water. While in the water the small tender will be relatively close by. We also have staff on look-out duty. In the Whitsundays, the reefs we visit are off the beaches, so it is pretty easy to make way to the beach.
Large bags cannot be taken on-board. Storage services are available in Airlie Beach for a fee, generally around $5.
Guests can park vehicles at Abell Point Marina. It is a Pay and Display car park with the fee of $8.00 per day, payable by coins or credit card.

I went on the Boomerang for 3 days and 2 nights for my schoolies celebrations with SU Backflip. I had the best time I have ever had. The crew (Dave, Megan, Marcus, and Simon) were the coolest!! You guys rock! I genuinely recommend everyone to go to the Whitsundays and go sailing on the Boomerang(the BEST in the fleet). Thanx for everyone Dave, Megs, Marc, and Simon. Chris
