We spent a weekend sailing around the Whitsunday islands on a small sailing boat. We visited the beautiful Whitehaven beach and spotted whales from the boat. We also snorkelled at several sites around the islands and saw all sorts of colourful fish. The water was crystal clear and the scenery was magical.
Our small boat, The Prima, should have accommodated twelve people but luckily enough just six of us had booked on to the trip that weekend. The cabins were small and there was not much space at all for the six of us, it was hard to imagine the boat at full capacity with twice the amount of people.
On the last day of the trip the wind was quite strong so we were able to sail the boat back to the marina, at an almost 45 degree angle! It was an exhilarating feeling, sailing through the stunning waters with all the other boats.
