Apollo's tour begins with an 8:00 am departure where you will make your way out of Coral Sea Marina out into the Coral Sea. First, you will head out towards the islands to your first snorkel destination, where your talented crew will take the opportunity to set the sails to allow the power of the wind to get you there! You can lend a hand and learn a thing or two about the art of sailing, or sit back and relax as the islands pass you by. Once you arrive, take the opportunity to jump in the water and check out the amazing underwater world of the Great Barrier Reef Marine Park, where you will find many amazing wonders waiting below the surface. Keep an eye out for beautiful sea turtles, playful clownfish, elusive stingrays and the many colourful parrotfish, coral trout and fusiliers. Guests can also take the opportunity to enjoy their free scuba dive here, which is open to both introductory and certified divers.
After snorkelling and scuba diving, you will make your way to Hook Passage, where you will be spending the night. Once anchored, guests will get to relax onboard, enjoying the beauty of their surroundings.
Days Two & Three
Day two will start early as guests head for Whitehaven Beach - one of the most famous beaches in the world. With soft silica sands, warm blue waters and seemingly endless shorelines, it's easy to understand why. Guests can join in on a short bushwalk up to Hill Inlet Lookout for amazing views of the swirling silica sands below, where they can take once-in-a-lifetime photos! The sands are never the same twice, and are always stunning and unique, changing by the minute. After spending quality time at Whitehaven, guests will head back to the boat, where they will set sail for their second snorkelling and scuba diving location. For those who are certified, there is also the opportunity to enjoy a night dive later in the evening.
During the last day, guests will head to their final snorkelling or diving location for more time in the water. After lunch, sail back to Coral Sea Marina through the beautiful Whitsunday Passage. Apollo's diverse and fun itinerary allows guests to see all the best of the Whitsundays during their 3 day, 2 night tour!
