3. Create your own itinerary 

One of the most enticing perks of a private charter is your ability to design your very own, personalised itinerary for your sail. Whether you’re a snorkelling fiend, island adventurer, beachside sunbaker, sailing enthusiast or luxury reveller, you can take your journey at whatever pace you desire, to whichever corners of the Whitsundays call your name! Discover the wonders waiting for you in the Great Barrier Reef with a snorkel, frolic amongst the silica sands of Whitehaven Beach and enjoy the swirling sands visible from Hill Inlet Lookout. Or, venture to the abundance of quieter, hidden gem islands such as Hook Island, Langford Island, Haselwood Island and Molle Island to name just a few!
