This action-packed adventure kicks things off in the paradise of Airlie Beach, departing the marina as we set off on an unforgettable sailing experience on the beautiful New Horizon!
As we cruise away from the mainland and sail towards your first stop, we will pass through Bauer Bay at South Molle Island. Here we will let everyone have a swim, play on the waterslide, or practice your balance on a paddleboard as everyone gets into the tropical holiday vibes. From here we set sail to our anchorage for the night, Hook Passage. Crack open a cold one, kick back and enjoy as you have the best seats in the house for a tropical sunset over the Whitsunday Islands.
As the day moves through to night, have a heated shower and get ready for a delicious dinner, freshly prepared by a crew member. Now it’s time to mingle and meet new mates with an evening of music, flowing drinks, friendly banter, and fun games as we all get to know one another. It might be night time, but you should keep your eye out on the ocean as dolphins come out to play near our spotlights. The blanket of stars and tropical marine life provide a spectacular backdrop for an evening of socialising. – YOU BEAUTY!
RISE AND SHINE!
It’s an early morning start but we promise it will be worth it. You’ll wake up to a tasty breakfast, with tea and coffee as we travel to the idyllic Whitehaven Beach. Once we arrive at Tongue Bay, our crew will take you to the beautiful Hill Inlet lookout, where you will see the creamy white swirls and crystal turquoise hues of Whitehaven Beach. There is no wonder it is one of the world's most photographed beaches.
Now you’ve seen it, it’s time to feel it! Let’s head down and splash about in those blue and white swirls. Explore, sunbake, swim, and play beach games as you soak up those Aussie rays. It’s time to head back to the boat and upon your return is a beautifully prepared buffet lunch. Whilst you eat, we will sail to one of the best snorkel and scuba diving destinations. New Horizon has a dive instructor who can take those who purchase a scuba diving experience out to explore the vibrant marine life, as you see one of the world's seven wonders of the natural world.
Next, we will visit another snorkelling/dive location. Here is where we will get the waterslides, paddleboards, and lili pad out so you can enjoy playing, swimming and splashing about. After finishing up with an afternoon of water activities, we will head to the exclusive beach for a white party. White outfit, check! Party tunes, check! Sunset and good vibes, check check! Don’t forget, it is lights out at 12am but you’ll thank us later.
THRILLS AND CHILLS
Ahhh it’s morning, the sun is shining, the birds are chirping and the crew are singing… LOUDLY to wake you up so have some breakfast and fill your bellies. There is no better way to fix a hangover than to slide down the water slide and dip into the ocean! Ahhh refreshing. Enjoy all the water activities or just lap up the sun on the decks before we sail back to the mainland.
WHAT A TRIP; and we’re not done yet! Let’s have one last night together with an exclusive True Blue after party! This is your chance to have one final hoorah with our crew and your newly lifelong friends as we get you exclusive VIP discounts on food and drinks.
