Atlantic Clipper provides breathtaking 2 day 2 night excursions of the amazing Whitsunday Islands, part of the Great Barrier Reef marine park.
Her size, comfort and superior facilities are what makes her so desirable to visitors of the area. It is a must do tour on the east coast
Firstly The Clipper accommodates up to 54 passengers and 6 crew, making her the biggest commercial vessel operating in the area. Her inflatable 8m water slide, water chute, dive platform and 12 person hot spa are massive selling points.
The mighty Atlantic Clipper leaves the Marina at approximately 2.45pm. And after an orientation briefing we cruise across Whitsunday Passage. Past the Molle group of islands along the southern end of Hook Island to Hook Passage. Which is between the two largest islands out of the 74 that make up the Whitsundays.
Once at the overnight anchorage there is plenty of time to enjoy a swim in the clear, Sunkist, tropical waters. The Clipper’s 12 person hot spa is in full swing but as the day moves into the twilight hours it’s time to enjoy a cold beverage and marvel at the mesmerising sun setting over the islands with its fierce orange glaze, emanating crimson rays reflecting off the tranquil crystal clear ocean.
As the day moves through to night it is time to enjoy a beautiful freshly prepared meal and relax with a few evening drinks up on the spacious top deck. The evening consists of relaxation, chat, games and on most trips Dolphins come to hunt and play under our two huge fish spotlights.
These majestic creatures are like unpaid crew members as they entertain everyone on board and normally stay beside the boat all night as they playfully chase other marine life as well as each other literally only a few feet from the euphoric passengers.
It’s a bright and early start for our Atlantic Clipper trippers at 7.00am. Passengers are greeted with a full continental breakfast including a delicious fresh fruit platter with honey and yoghurt.
The Atlantic Clipper arrives to Whitehaven (Tongue Bay) where an experienced tour guide takes the passengers to Hill Inlet lookout. Which is the 4th most photographed place in Australia. And overlooks the creamy white decadent swirls of hill inlet on Whitehaven Beach.
From this lookout point the passengers are then taken to north Whitehaven Beach. And the passengers have the opportunity to explore the pristine sand. Polish your jewellery in the 98% pure white silica sand or play beach games with your guide.
The passengers return to the vessel for approximately 12pm where your freshly prepared buffet lunch will be served. After a short sail you will arrive to your snorkel and dive destination. With a dedicated dive instructor and arguably the best self-contained dive operation in the Whitsundays.
There is no shortage of opportunity to explore the magical coral reef. Whether it be snorkelling or scuba diving. This underwater world lights up before your eyes and is the richest marine habitat in the world.
Exploring the reef is obviously a huge highlight for most guests. Not only in the trip but as a truly memorable life experience. After some free time It’s time for a hot shower. Afternoon snacks and a cold beverage.whilst enjoying a picturesque sunset sail to the overnight anchorage.
If time allows we try to watch the sunset on a beautiful sandy spit which is nothing short of stunning! The day is finished off with an interactive and informative chart read, which tells all the guests about where we have been what we have done.
