Details about this tour
You will be picked up from your accommodation and transferred to the Port of Airlie Marina to board Lady Enid at 8am. After introductions and a safety briefing, you will set sail for Whitehaven Beach amongst the Whitsundays 74 Islands.
Your host for the day will personally serve you a tea or coffee of your choice. Morning tea consists of fresh scones, jam and cream with a selection of gourmet mini muffins.
As the sails are set, you are more then welcome to sit back and relax or join in and learn how to hoist the sails. Through the day, the attentive crew will engage in conversation about the history of Lady Enid, the destination and history of the Whitsunday Islands.
Before arrival at the destination a fruit platter is served on board. On arrival at Tongue Point on Whitsunday Island, it is a short dingy (small boat) to shore. Your deckhand and guide will escort you to Hill Inlet lookout, which is a short 500-metre walk. Hill Inlet in the Whitsundays is a stunning inlet located at the northern end of Whitehaven Beach on Whitsunday Island, the largest of the 74 islands in the Whitsundays. As the tide shifts, the white sand and blue hues of the inlet blend seamlessly to create a breathtaking mosaic.
Your escort will then walk you back down to Whitehaven Beach. Whitehaven Beach is a pristine, award-winning beach on Whitsunday Island. Whitehaven Beach stretches over seven kilometres and boasts brilliant white silica sand that is among the purest in the world. Sink your feet into the sand and wade into the warm waves that gently lap the shore and you'll soon realise why people come here from all over the world.
As a special treat to Lady Enids guests, you will also be escorted to Bettys Beach, a beautiful alcove at Whitehavens most Northern point to enjoy mostly by yourself. A day on Lady Enid is about relaxing and not having to rush from point to point, therefore giving you more time to enjoy this beautiful beach. As you sail to our next destination to get up close and personal with the sea life and corals of the Great Barrier Reef, a snorkeling stop on the secluded island reefs will certainly ensure beautiful memories are made.
