You will be greeted by our Wings Eco Sailing Adventures crew and invited on board where lunch will be served. Once you’ve been orientated around the vessel relax and take in the scenery as you sail to your first snorkel location. As you head to one of the islands of the Whitsunday Islands you will sail across the Whitsunday Passage and pass the Mole group of islands before arriving at Hook or Border Island.

After the snorkelling has finished its back on board for a cold beer and some sunset snacks whilst you cruise to your overnight anchorage of South Whitehaven Beach or Tongue Bay (weather permitting). After dinner the crew will invite you to view an eco slide show, showing you some photos of what you may see and observe underwater and also pictures that have been taken whilst snorkelling that day. Look out after dark for shooting stars or sit on the back deck and watch the fish swim in and out of our underwater blue lights.


After breakfast your Wings Eco Sailing Adventures highlight, the magnificent South Whitehaven Beach. Enjoy a morning swim where you will be able to explore the beautiful white silica sands of Whitehaven. Later on you will be taken on a short bush walk to the lookout at Hill Inlet where you will be able to overlook the entire beach and view it in its finest glory. This is a picturesque setting and great for photo opportunities. After the lookout walk down to Betty’s Beach which is the Northern end of Whitehaven Beach.

After lunch the best snorkelling locations are were we are headed too. Visit two more locations on Hook Island such as Mantaray Bay, Luncheon Bay or Langford Island for a snorkel with the turtles and a sunset on the sand.

Wings Eco Sailing Adventures evening slide show is great fun as your host would have taken some great photos at the beach and our crew would have captured all the days snorkelling. What a fun packed day in the Whitsundays


After breakfast it’s the final splash at the last snorkel site. Do some fish feeding at Blue Pearl Bay. It’s your last chance to see the amazing under water world of the Whitsunday Islands before your Wings Eco Sailing Adventures cruise makes the journey back to Airlie Beach.
