The Whitsunday Islands are an important part of the Great Barrier Reef and its vast and diverse ecosystem. The fringing reefs of the islands are a snorkeller's paradise, where you will find amazing marine life, nestled away in calm coves and protected bays. Whitsunday Getaway carries a full complement of snorkel gear aboard including stinger suits, fins, mask and flotation assistance devices, so all guests can enjoy an unforgettable snorkelling experience. Snorkel with schools of tropical fish, and be amazed by the bright and vivid colours of the spectacular coral formations. The warm waters and calm seas of the Whitsundays are ideal for snorkelling year round, with an average water temperature of 25 degrees. 

Swimming in the whitsundays

Stand-up paddle boards 
Paddleboards allow for a great view of the surrounding area, and are a fun way to explore the reef and coastline! Keep on enjoying the sun as you glide on the surface of the reefs, having fun keeping your balance and paddling around. From above the water, you will get to enjoy the reef in a new way as you quietly make your way around while fish and other marine life hang out below. Great for spotting turtles, stand-up paddle boards are becoming popular all over the world.

"This trip was the highlight of our 5-day trip to the tropical north and my best birthday yet (I've had quite a few to compare). Travelling with my husband, and 4 friends from overseas, we loved every minute of the experience. We and our guests were blissed-out within the first couple of hours on board. The vessel is comfortable and well maintained, with enough space for everyone and enough spaces for variety. The itinerary was well-paced, and took in some wonderful places for relaxing and snorkeling - the last morning, we spent 2 hours in the water that went by in a flash - there was such an amazing variety of sea life. Perhaps the best part of the trip was the crew. Captain Jimmy, who oozed confidence and was always watching out for our safety. And Becca, who tirelessly and graciously cared for our comfort. Both were delightful company as well."
Jim Bahr
"I had an amazing time on our 3 day 3 night sailing trip. everything from the boat to the food to the crew was exceptional, exceeding my expectations. Nina and Chris were a wonderful team.

Amanda P
"We had a brilliant time on the 3 night cruise with our skipper Phil and host Deb, on the catamaran Getaway2. The experience exceeded our expectations with a comfortable cabin and washroom, great food served up by Deb and Phil and the superb scenery and locations. We were really lucky to have great company too and all eight of us had a really wonderful time. Phil was a perfect skipper, knowledgeable about where to go and what to see and always keeping an eye on us all. He was also laid back and relaxed and he and Deb were a real pleasure to chat to "Up Top" as we sailed around the Whitsundays. Truly the highlight of our 4 week Australian adventure and couldn't recommend it enough to anyone considering this type of trip."
"We loved the laid back feeling on this trip. The activities were all great - sailing, snorkelling, Whitehaven Beach. The food was great and the drinks were cold highly recommend!"
"The usual compliments don't do this trip justice - It was exceptional, amazing, outstanding! I give it 11/10!"
"What a fabulous way to explore the whitsunday passage on board the Whitsunday Getaway luxury catamaran. 4 ensuite cabins only air conditioned, great food, snorkelling, good company and a great skipper Phil and stand in hostess Rachel. There is plenty of food on this trip, BYO own alcohol. The boat is stable and in good condition, visit Whitehaven Beach including walk to lookout, snorkelling in a couple of locations and anchor up in a quite protected bay at night. Very relaxing."
"Tremendously enjoyable trip with very friendly crew. With 8 passengers, all of whom chose this cruise because of the small numbers, relaxed atmosphere and flexible itinerary with very good snorkelling – all equipment provided including stinger suits. Highlight was Whitehaven Beach which has to be seen to be believed. Plenty of food."
"A really fun trip and made all the better because of the cheerful and informed host and skipper. We have made lots of friends on the trip and will not forget it for a very long time. Cant wait to come back."
"A perfect trip! Rich and Veronica were warm, friendly and very knowledgeable about the area. Only 8 passengers is ideal! It was fun and relaxing, we felt as though we were spending the days with good friends. The snorkelling and beach walk were exceptional and the food was wonderful. It is impossible to imagine a better trip except another trip in the near future!"
"Our trip on Whitsunday Getaway was the highlight of our trip. After being welcomed on board we sailed off in the comfort of this beautiful catamaran. Days were spent relaxing on the deck, snorkelling and taking in the wonders of the Whitsundays. Evenings spent relaxing on board under the stars. At night as you lay in the cabin the sounds of the seas was very calming. Our hostess prepared the most fabulous food, including snacks each time you returned on board. You could do as much or as little on board as you liked. Overall our time on the Whitsunday Getaway was fabulous & we were all sad when it ended."
"Fantastic trip, great hosts, great food, snorkelling + Whitehaven Beach! Thank you so much Phil & Deb for great few days cruising around the beautiful Whitsundays."

"We unfortunately had lots of rain on the day one & two. But Trent & Hayley definitely kept us all smiling. They were both so informative about any questions we had & were always smiling despite our groans about the weather (would drive one crazy). So thank you both. We have had a ball on our 'minimoon' on the Whitsunday Getaway "
Amber & David
"Crew knew all the good spots on the reef to take us to. We were never rushed. Food appeared 'by magic' at exactly the right time and was healthy and delicious and plenty of it. Was great to have Whitehaven Beach to ourselves thanks to Trent knowing the schedules of the other visiting boats. Trent & Ashley were always attentive but at the same time very relaxed, letting us do what we wanted and allowing us to do as much or as little sailing as we wanted! Exceptional!"

"Overall this was a great trip. Trent and Ashleigh were very accommodating and so knowledgably about the area. It was great to be able to customize our trip a little. My only complaint was the bathroom, the drain did not work so there was water on the floor. The snorkelling was great along with the hike on the last day."
Maureen & Katie
"The trip has been such an amazing experience. Even when the weather was bas on the first day, we still had so much fun. The service + attention to details is out of this world. Better than any hotel. Nothing was too much trouble for Trent or Ashleigh and they really made the trip for us both - they are a real credit to the Whitsunday Getaway team. Thanks again for everything. We will definitely be recommending this experience. If you are ever in England give us a shout. "
