Overview

The best day sailing, snorkelling and diving in the Whitsundays. Relax on a 12m catamaran, with space to lounge, and escape the elements too. Perfect for all ages. Visit the beautiful Blue Pearl Bay on Hayman Island, and Langford reef, where you may even get to swim with turtles. We might not look like an old pirate ship or charge like one, but we do offer more sailing and snorkelling time than most, and we charge much less. Small numbers too mean plenty of space to sit or lie down.

We had a small group of people sailing onboard Illusions 2 to Blue Pearl Bay and Langford Reef with adequate time for snorkelling and diving. Joseph and Naomi work hard to ensure a safe and enjoyable day out
