On an overnight charter the anchorages and locations will be dependent on the length of charter you choose. The possibilities are endless with 74 tropical Whitsunday Islands to explore! Top Whitsunday 'must do's' on each charter are of course the magnificent Hill Inlet Whitehaven Beach- the picture postcard that really does need to be seen to be believed. Travelling overnight allows us to have the time to pick the best tides to get our guests up there to beat the day crowds and get the best of the swirling silica sands.

South Whitehaven is also top priority and we also try and overnight in the bay which is something only an overnight charter can achieve. Sunset and sunrises here are so special. There are multiple bush walks at South Whitehaven and you can easily spend 1- 2 days here alone if you really want to relax and soak it all in. Other listed anchorages for overnight charters could be Chalkies beach, Honeymoon Bay, Chance Bay, Turtle Bay, Nara Inlet, Cid Harbour, Hook Passage, Saba Bay, Mackeral bay, Mantaray Bay, Luncheon Bay, Butterfly Bay, Stonehaven Bay,

Your skipper is very knowledgeable on the water and will sail the vessel with the correct weather conditions for each charter. Keeping our guests comfortable is our top priority and the anchorages can vary depending on those conditions. At night we stay in protected bays that help keep the boat stable at night- we do not anchor in open areas.

All our charters depart and return from Coral Sea Marina Airlie Beach. The exact meeting point is meeting point B at the Northern End - near the roundabout under the white umbrellas. If parking a car, the car park is located near the other marina building (Southern End). Be careful not to mix up which marina building. Head to googlemaps if you get into trouble and search for us on there! Remember meeting Point B at the Northern End!
