WHAT TO EXPECT

Langford Reef and Black Island are two of the most beautiful locations in the Whitsundays. Nestled between Hayman Island and Hook Island, these two tropical wonderlands offer a great day trip for adventurous guests. Take advantage of the full range of activities offered, including paddleboards, sailing, swimming, snorkelling, or enjoy a short stroll up to Langford Lookout. Be as active as you like! Or take time to relax and enjoy the area’s natural beauty.

 

Small numbers and big deck space mean you have plenty of room. The big blue deck cushions onboard offer extra comfort. The shaded canopy is great for those wanting a break from the sun. Southern Cross will make you feel like you’re a part of the original America’s Cup team sailing the Whitsundays.


 

Get involved, take the helm, hoist the sails of one of Australia’s most famous racing yachts. Relax on the huge blue deck cushions or the shaded saloon area (ideal for families). Sail for just over 2 hours to the islands and back to Coral Seas Marina. You’ll have up to 4 hours on the beach or in the water to enjoy in the Whitsundays. This trip is ideal for families, small groups, couples, or adventurous travellers who want to experience true sailing? Then the Southern Cross day trip will suit you.



Itinerary:


The tour will send a bus to pick you up from your local accommodation and transfer you to the marina to meet the crew for a 9 am departure. Don't forget to grab that early morning coffee before pickup!



Sail straight to the Northern end of the Whitsundays on Southern Cross, experiencing an exhilarating beam reach (ideal sailing angle). Southern Cross is a true racing legend, built for America's Cup. Today, while Southern Cross still holds the spirit of a racing yacht, considerable modifications have been made to make it comfortable for guests, with features such as a shaded cockpit, comfortable cushioned deck area, downstairs lounge area, and guest bathroom.



You’ll have up to 4 hours on the beach or in the water to enjoy the Northern end of the Whitsundays. All meals and snacks are included for the duration of your trip. A lunch picnic pack allows you to decide if you would like to eat on the deck or on the beach. Then set sail for Coral Sea Marina to arrive back at 5 pm.
