6 Night Cruise sailing from Hamilton Island roundtrip aboard Triple888EIGHT.
Day 1 Hamilton Island – Stonehaven Bay
Board the luxury Triple888Eight superyacht on Hamilton Island from 11am.
Once all guests are all settled onboard, we begin our 6 night YOTSPACE superyacht voyage to our first nights anchorage, Stonehaven Bay, where you may wish to enjoy your very first snorkel, and explore some of the local sights or take a tender ride and navigate the scenic coastline in Triple888Eight’s 700HP 10 meter RIB. Refreshing cocktails and drinks will be provided during our cruise, followed by some relaxation time on the Flybridge sunpads to witness a beautiful Stonehaven Bay sunset and enjoy some drinks and canapes or relax from a nice cozy position in the Jacuzzi hot tub.
Day 2 Hook Island – Butterfly Bay – Maureens Cove – Manta Ray Bay
After a wonderful nights sleep on the reef we wake to a sumptuous breakfast, and then when ready we will depart for the short cruise to the top of Hook Island, where guests will be treated to some incredible sightseeing, secluded coral beaches, snorkeling and hand feed Giant Humphead Maouri Wrasse, Giant Trevally, Coral Trout, Batfish and Fusiliers, to name just a few of the abundant marine life here. Scenic places we will visit today are Butterfly Bay, Maureen’s Cove, Luncheon Bay, Manta Ray Bay and Pinnacle Bay.
We will conclude the day with a cruise to Hook Passage where we will anchor for our second night under the stars on the Great Barrier Reef.
Day 3 Whitehaven Beach
Today is the day we will be visiting the silicon sands of Whitehaven Beach. We will plan for an earlier breakfast and depart early morning, and head for Whitehaven Beach. Guests have the option of the short hike to the Hill Inlet lookout, and also a swim on the beach adjacent to Hill Inlet. Other than a swim on the stunning Whitehaven Beach sand, places to visit are in Whitehaven Bay are Haselwood Island and Teage Island.
Should you desire to see Whitehaven Beach and the Whitsunday Island from the air our superyacht Captain can arrange for helicopter flights from South Whitehaven Beach if requested.
In the afternoon, we will visit Border Island for some snorkeling on the protected reef, which is home to some of the healthiest soft and hard corals in the Whitsundays. The marine life is also abundant due to no fishing allowed. Or you may just wish to sit back and relax with a good book and enjoy basking in the sun as the boat is at anchor.
Day 4 Outer Great Barrier Reef Secret Lagoon
Early morning on day 4 we will head to the outer Great Barrier Reef and spend the night in one of our superyacht Captain’s favourite overnight lagoons. The Triple888Eight crew like to travel further than most, to avoid the crowds. Our superyacht Captain has requested that we do not mention the name of this reef here as currently other yachts do not visit this secret lagoon.
Once anchored, you will be taken to some of the Captains favourite snorkelling and dive spots.
There is nothing like drinking cocktails while watching an amazing sunset at anchor in a protected lagoon 50 NM from the mainland, without another superyacht or boat in sight. Please note as this is an outer reef and lagoon it may be that the weather prevents us reaching this destination due to weather conditions. If you do make it to this reef please keep it a secret surprise for our next YOTSPACE superyacht voyage guests.
Day 5 Outer Great Barrier Reef Secret Lagoon – Hayman Island
On day 5 we will explore the outer reefs and lagoon for most of the day as we do not want to leave this stunning place in a hurry. We will visit remote areas that rarely get seen by other superyacht guests. In the afternoon we will head back to the Whitsunday Islands and anchor around the Hayman Island region to enjoy some star gazing and cocktails before a 5 star gourmet dinner.
Day 6 Hayman Island – Nara Inlet
After you wake at your leisure and enjoy a hot or cold breakfast you may wish to jump back in the water to say good morning to the marine life around Hayman Island. Our superyacht Captain will cruise to Nara Inlet where you may go for an expedition in the tender, and a short hike to look at the Aboriginal cave paintings from the local Ngaro people, and learn about their ancient ancestral history in the Whitsunday Islands. A more energetic hike would be available on day 6 also for those that are keen to climb some mountains.
Day 7 Nara Inlet – Hamilton Island
On our last day some guests may choose to rise early and board the tender for their last snorkel around the eastern side of Hook Island whilst the other guests may choose to have a relaxing sleep in and a late breakfast and just relax on the superyacht for the morning. After breakfast, we usually do a nice slow sightseeing cruise back to Hamilton Island to allow our guests to arrive in time for checking into their Hamilton Island accommodation or their departure flights from the island.
