Myself and my partner boarded Pride of Airlie,and to our surprise... a very large and stable sailing catamaran (we heard a lot of the boats can very small,old and slow)....great news for my girlfriend and she usually gets sea sick. Not this time, which was another reason we choose this trip, sail the Whitsundays by day, and sleep on a Resort Island by nite. Real happy :)
Day 1 Sailing into Adventure Island was a Dream....beautiful white sandy beaches, crystal clear water, palm trees, massive pool/spa...and a HUGE Bar entertainment area, golf course, tennis courts...Room was awesome, just one back from the Beach, nice balcony, and one of the cleanest we have had all trip. Real nice after being out sailing all Day (room does not ROCK)...Staff were amazing, super helpful and friendly. After a bit of Beach Volleyball, took girlfriend snorkelling right off the beach (in front of our room) heaps of fish and colourful coral. She loved the fish feeding,and the paddle boarding.I refused to sign at the Karaoke party(lucky for everyone else)
After a great breakfast day 2, we boarded early and set sail to Whitehaven Beach.What can I say Wow...more good news for the girlfriend, the catamaran(which has no keel)meant we could almost jump onto the beach from the boat...as she cant swim to good. That night at the resort after a huge dinner was a Island Beach party. Made some great new friends.
Even after a big night, day 3 we still made it up for the Island Bush walk. Spectacular views of the bay and a ancient Ngaro tribe quarry,just awesome. Trust me being our last day we did not want to leave, as I had not played golf on the Golf Course yet. Sadly we said our goodbyes to the staff, thanked them heaps for looking after us...and set sail home to Airlie. Best trip EVER, will be back next holidays for sure. Recommend this to anyone who doesn't want to be stuck on a smelly boat for 2 /3 days, and still get to sail the Whitsunday Islands, and have some FUN on a Island resort without having to pay surrounding Island resort prices. GREAT VALUE, as all meals/accommodation/snorkelling etc. were all included.Loved it.
