With Apollo, each School Charter itinerary can be tailored to your specific group, taking into consideration your curriculum and study goals so you and your students can make the most out of the trip. Below are just some of the things that can be included in your tour:

Snorkelling 

With some of the best snorkelling in the whole of Australia around the Whitsundays, our experienced crew can offer informative and educational guided snorkel tours around these stunning fringe reefs. With at least two stops on the itinerary, you and your students will get to explore this underwater paradise in a couple of unique places. 

Whitehaven Beach and Hill Inlet Lookout

Apollo visits the iconic Whitehaven Beach, known for its 99% pure white silica sand which stretches over 7km. Wade in the shallows and search for baby lemon sharks, stingray and many other beautiful marine species at one of most spectacularly beautiful places in the entire world. 

You'll then get a bushwalk up to the world famous Hill Inlet Lookout, where you can marvel at the swirls in the sand and turquoise water from above. During this walk, you'll learn about the natural and cultural history of the land before you.

Learn to Sail

Whilst travelling between destinations, the crew will use their experience to safely teach your students the basics of sailing and allow them in assisting the navigation of the boat.

The whole trip was amazing and it will definitely be a trip I remember when I come back home. All the snorkelling we did was probably the best part. The crew was joyful, concerned about your safety and knowledgable about the area.
