One-day Great Barrier Reef trip
Book This Trip
This trip is aboard Sailaway IV and Sailaway III, a Mono Hull Sailboat with a maximum of 33 divers and a Dive Staff of 4. It is for 1 day.
Departure is from Cape Trib Beach, Cape Tribulation at 8:30 AM every day, return time 4:00 PM.
Your adventure begins in the spectacular Cape Tribulation Bay where you will safely board Sailaway from the beach by landing craft, Guests can sit back and relax on the beautiful yacht and set sail to the Coral Cays of Mackay or Undine Reefs and enjoy an authentic sailing experience, just 10nm off the coast.
Nature activities will include snorkelling over the pristine coral reef with a qualified marine biologist offering reef interpretation and a guided glass bottom boat tour.
Premium reef sites showcase abundant marine life, including encounters with turtles and an amazing display of giant clam gardens. Both of Sailaway’s reef locations (Undine Reef and Mackay Reef) are sand cays, small scenic sand islands, so you can soak up the sun, peace and tranquillity and swim in turquoise clear waters.
A tropical buffet lunch, morning and afternoon teas & coffees, supplied by local plantations, will complement a day of adventure and relaxation. Expert guiding and 1st class service are all included from helpful, friendly crew. After a day on the outer reef enjoy pure sailing back to Cape Trib taking in spectacular jungle-clad coastal mountain views of this rugged wilderness coast.
This is a luxury trip, and Sailaway attends to the details, from sourcing produce locally, to having well trained staff. We especially like their commitment to sustainability, they started their own reforestation project, and spend $10 towards this end for every guest they take out to the reef.
Sailway III and IV are amazing luxury sailboats, custom built in France for Sailaway. These vessels are used interchangeably by Sailaway, and are both comfortable and luxurious, with all the amenities you could want. We especially like the twin stairway style ocean entrances at the stern of the vessel, which allow for easy entry and exit from the water. They can take up to 33 guests out at a time to visit the reefs off Cape Tribulation.
