Tallship Sailing and Snorkeling Adventure from the Whitsundays
See osprey eagles and turtles as you sail, and hear tales from the area’s Aboriginal history. After dropping anchor, go snorkeling in the pristine waters and fringing coral reef, where the calm waters and plenty of guidance make snorkeling a breeze for first-timers.
Enjoy walks on the sandy coral cay, then return to your beautiful tallship to enjoy a smorgasbord buffet lunch of cold meats, salads and tropical fruit. In the afternoon, relax on the ship’s spacious deck, with plenty of sun and shade areas, as you sail back across the Whitsunday Passage to Airlie Beach. While sailing, graze on cheese and fruit platters and order a drink from the licensed bar (own expense).

It was my first sailing cruise and I enjoyed my time on the Derwent Hunter. The crew was very nice and it was fun to help setting the sail. The food was delicious! I've seen better places for snorkelling, didn't get to see too many kinds of fishes, however, I still had a lovely day and I would recommend the tour to my friends and family.
A fabulous day out! Highly recommended for all ages! We were collected from our hotel and taken to the harbour where we were met by the most friendly crew. During the sail we were informed about the history of the Derwent Hunter and Whitsunday Islands which was fascinating. The snorkelling was amazing and sights just breath taking! I want to go again!
Fantastic day, exceptionally well organised Crew were very knowledgable and friendly What a wonderful ship !! Sailing in wonderful scenery ! Snorkelling was great ( so was the food !!) Highly recommended
