Sailing on Whitsunday Getaway provides a calming and comfortable experience. Feel free to help the crew hoist the sails, or simply sit back and enjoy the ride.
Paddle boards allow for a great view of the surrounding area, and are a fun way to explore the reef and coastline! From above the water you will get to enjoy the reef in a new way as you quietly make your way around as fish and other marine life hang out below.
