sailing trip at great barrier reef?

we are planning to go to the great barrier reef next november. We are wondering what is the best choice, go to an island and stay there for 3 nights, or take a sailing trip for 3 nights?

And which sailing company is recommended?

we love good food, wine, snorkeling and nature.

If you wouldn' t recommend a sailing trip, which island would you recommend us to go?

Thank you.

Your question is like asking should I have a strawberry or an apple. Both are two completely different experiences.

Are you more into sitting back by a pool watching the palms sway whilst asking for another cocktail in between skipping out for an expensive day trip?


Would you prefer to lay back on deck watching the islands and nature go by under wind whilst enjoying a nice beverage after a big day snorkeling, bush walking and exploring, followed by watching the sunset in the million star hotel?

With both these options you will need to narrow it down a bit more as there is many different options here in the Whitsunday Islands.
