Every trip itinerary on board Summer Jo is unique and guaranteed to take you to the most iconic destinations within the Whitsundays. Your itinerary will be mapped out around the current weather and tidal conditions meaning that no two trips on Summer Jo are the same. However, you are guaranteed to visit the south end of Whitehaven Beach and, of course, the Great Barrier Reef. 

Explore the Outer Great Barrier Reef 

The world-heritage listed Great Barrier Reef is home to over 1600 different types of fish, 30 species of whales and dolphins, 6 species of turtles, 900 islands, and 3000 individual reefs. It also offers some of the top diving sites, unparalleled to anywhere else in the world. Whether it be green sea turtles, friendly reef sharks, manta rays, giant clams, clown fish, parrot fish or humpback whales, you are guaranteed to see something incredible during your time exploring the reef. If you're not up for scuba diving, spend your time swimming or snorkelling on the reef. The onboard Master Reef Guide will be there to show you around the reef and point out any unique corals or fish you may come across. 

Note: Visiting the Outer Reef is weather dependent and may not always be available, but there will always be chances to scuba dive on the Inner Reef! 

Visit The Whitsunday Islands, Whitehaven Beach and Hill Inlet Lookut

With 74 islands scattered throughout the Whitsundays, you'll be sure to get to know a fair few of them throughout your 3 day trip! You'll visit Hook Island, Whitsunday Island and Blue Pearl Bay which is located off the exclusive Hayman Island. Whitsunday Island is the largest island in the area and is home to world-renowned Whitehaven Beach. The sand is made up of pure silica which is what makes it famously white and soft. Be sure to have your camera ready on Whitehaven and Hill Inlet Lookout, as the white sand and azure blue waters make for stunning photo backdrops!

Keep an eye out for Whales

Whale season in the Whitsundays runs from June to October so if you're lucky enough to be travelling during those months, you might spot a humpback whale! The whales migrate north during the winter in search of food and warmer waters. You'll often see mother whales with their calves breaching and splashing about so be sure to keep a look out during your cruise to and from the Outer Reef!

Reconfirmations cannot be actioned through Sailing Whitsundays/Mr Travel, and must be done so directly through the Service Operator as specified on each ticket.

It is your responsibility to notify us of ticket discrepancies. Please read through the details on your voucher thoroughly to ensure all details such as passenger names, ages and dates of travel on vouchers are correct.

It is the responsibility of all passengers travelling to advise both your travel agent at the time of booking and vessel check-in agent before boarding of any medical conditions including food allergies you may suffer from.

You need to allow adequate time to check-in prior to the specified departure time.

All prices are stated in Australian dollars and include GST. Surcharges over peak holiday seasons may apply. 

The Service Operator reserves the right to alter prices and extra costs. Extra costs may include EMC fees, Stingersuit/Wetsuit Hire, Luggage Storage, Insurance, Linen Hire, National Park Fees, Fuel Levies, Dietary Fees, etc. Bonds may also apply.

We will also endeavour to communicate these extra costs with you at the time of booking, and on your ticket. However, it is your responsibility to confirm which (if any) additional costs apply with each Service Operator upon reconfirming your trip.


Travel Risk/Insurance:

It should be noted that adventure travel involves risk. Whilst we make every effort to safeguard clients, we cannot be responsible for personal injury or loss due to the actions of our clients which are beyond our control. We highly recommend that all clients have travel insurance covering illness, injury, loss or damage to personal belongings and not being able to travel on the confirmed date of departure. You should also ensure your travel insurance will cover special circumstances including weather events preventing guests from travelling to their tour departure destination and cancelled flights due to unforeseen circumstances. 


Merchant Fees:

Please be aware operators pass on credit card merchant fees so there is a non-refundable 1% surcharge for VISA and MASTERCARD card purchases.

All ticket/voucher reissues attract a $20 administration fee.

The Service Operator reserves the right to alter prices, alter itineraries, apply a fuel surcharge, cancel departures, arrange alternative transport and vary itineraries and services if necessary.

All departures and itineraries are subject to weather. Tours may be changed or cancelled for any reason at the discretion of the Service Operator. If the Service Operator has to cancel the trip or activity (prior to departure) and we cannot offer a suitable alternative, then a refund will be given minus a 20% administration fee and any associated card fees. We strongly recommend that you have travel insurance, especially during the wet season.

In the unlikely event of your trip being cancelled or stood down, all guest communication is required to go through our Online Store via telephone or email. While there is a Sailing Whitsundays retail outlet located Airlie Beach, please be aware that they operate as a separate entity and are unable to access reservations made by the Mr Travel online department.


Refunds:

All refunds are in Australian Dollars and must be made to the card of payment. Sailing Whitsundays/Mr Travel is not liable for exchange rate fluctuations or fees, or any other merchant/bank fees associated with domestic and/or international transactions.

Where a full refund is applicable, there is the option to transfer the whole cost of the tour to another tour or “Credit” to avoid the administration fee. A transfer fee of $20 will apply.

You will be emailed confirmation once the refund has been processed. Once the refund has been processed, it may still take time for the banks to clear the amount. Please allow 7-10 business days for the funds to clear into Australian accounts and up to 21 business days for international accounts.


Accountability/Misconduct:

All Service Operators have the right to provide client feedback and to cancel bookings based off of feedback from other Service Operators. 

Please enjoy your travel experience in a kind and responsible manner.

Sailing Whitsundays/Mr Travel will treat this as any normal client cancellation and therefore the cancellation fees stated in the Client Cancellation Policy will apply.
