    Itinerary

    DAY 1

    You'll meet your friendly crew and fellow passengers for a 2:00 pm departure from Abell Point Marina then set sail towards the spectacular Whitsunday Islands! You'll soon arrive at the first snorkel location - handpicked by your guide to give you the best possible snorkelling so you can see plenty of the magical underwater world of these fringing reefs. After a snorkel, you'll sail on to the overnight anchorage location. Enjoy sunset snacks, drinks then dinner (with dessert). Spend the night hanging out on the deck and having some drinks with your new mates. Mats are also provided for stargazing and sleeping on deck if you wish.

    DAY 2

    Wake up early for breakfast as you head out to Tongue Bay. Once there, it is time to go on a bush walk up to Hill Inlet Lookout! You will be blown away by the views of the famous Whitehaven Beach. Once you have perfected your new Instagram shot, head down to spend time on the beach (about 3 hours). Then it is back to the boat for lunch and onto the second snorkelling location...and then a third snorkelling spot! Once you are snorkelled out (if there is such a thing), you'll make for Langford Island where you can hang out on the beach for sunset snacks. You'll make anchorage nearby and enjoy dinner (with another dessert), a couple of drinks and your second night of fun, chilling, socialising and stargazing.

        The best trip

        The crew on Broomstick were amazing! Xav, Crispy and Dan made our trip so exciting and we didnt stop laughing the entire time! They made the most delicious food and made sure we never went hungry. They even catered well for gluten free, more than what we expected. Would and will recommend this boat and staff to anyone.

        Amazing time and experience!

        Me and my girlfriend had such a good time sailing on Broomstick. The boat was really nice, we ate like kings and we experienced some proper champagne sailing! We had a small group of 11 and the company was great, but it was the crew that really made the trip. They were such a laugh and really chilled out cool guys. They took us snorkeling on the great barrier reef 4 times which was an unexpected treat as we sailed around the 74 whitsunday islands. The captain was very knowledgeable about the islands and found some good spots for us to bed down for the nights. Would really recommend this trip!
