Bumbelbee 4 Whitsunday Sailing Itinerary

Departs 8am returns 5:15 to 5:30pm.

With a coach pickup from your accommodation house to the marina, we depart from Abell Point Marina at 8 am.

Enjoy morning tea and crew commentary of the surrounding islands, then before you know it, we have arrived at our first destination, Tongue Bay on Whitsunday Island.

Using the tender, guests transfer in groups over to the beach, and then one of the crew will guide guests along the path to the Hill Inlet Lookout. Here guests take in the spectacular view of Australia's number one beach, marvel at the shimmering swirling sands covered by crystal clear waters.  Don't forget to ask the guide to take pictures of you with this famous background.

You will then have time to explore the beach, before being welcomed back onboard with a delicious lunch. Setting sail once again for the voyage to our snorkel location. Snorkel equipment and stinger suits will be issued before the crew provide a snorkel briefing and instruction on the snorkelling site. With temperatures rarely dropping lower than 21°C, this is a very comfortable snorkel location, with tropical fish and corals blanketing the ocean floor, the odd turtle and dolphin also can’t resist saying hello.

Around 3:30 pm we set sail for Airlie Beach, switching off the engine and by the power of wind sailing across the Whitsunday Passage.  The crew will serve afternoon fruit and cheese platters.  Arriving back in Abell Point Marina between 5-5:30 pm and our courtesy coach will be waiting to take you back to your accommodation.
