OVERVIEW

Maximum Speed - Maximum Power - Maximum Fun!
Welcome aboard the thoroughbred Maxi Yachts. These yachts are truly unique and there is no other location in the world where you can experience formula one sailing vacations on your choice of these Maxi Legends.

What is a Maxi?
A true Maxi was designed and built purely as a racing machine, they cost millions of dollars and Maxi yachts are 75 feet and over in length. Sailboat charter on a Maxi combines the sheer size and power with the thrill of speed.

Together with their fascinating racing history the Maxi yachts make for an unforgettable sailing experience, and overnight Maxi sailing vacations are unique to the Whitsundays!

All of the Maxis have been fitted out for sailboat charter with bathrooms, bunks, a galley (kitchen) and comply with all Department of Transport survey specifications.

The Maxi adventure allows you the opportunity to participate, take the wheel, hoist the sails and grind the winches on some of the most famous yachts in racing history, whilst visiting the very best destinations the Whitsunday Islands has to offer. Whether it be a Sydney to Hobart, Maxi World Championship, Kenwood Cup, Fastnet or South China Sea Series, between the fleet of Maxis they've done it all!

Scuba Diving:
Around the beautiful Whitsunday Islands you find that the further North you go, the better the marine life and coral formations are. Hook Island and Langford Reef are two of the most northern islands in the Whitsundays and are both amongst the premier sites for diving around the Whitsundays. They are both lovely examples of the Great Barrier Reef Marine Park with the bays full of extraordinary coral formations and marine life in abundance.
From the time you wade into knee deep water there are many varieties of fish around your ankles and within swimming a couple of metres off the beach there is coral under you and once again fish surrounding you. This makes these destinations perfect places for “beginner” or “nervous divers” because when you have plenty of distraction it tends to help the nerves!

For the Certified Divers there is a guided dive available that is under the supervision of the experienced Dive Instructor/Master. There are over hangs, crevices to explore and huge bommies (coral heads) of stunning coral. The marine life is very impressive with anemones, seas cucumbers, starfish, nudi branches, just to name a few. The dive instructor will simply guide you around and point out different marine life of interest as you go along to ensure that you have an enjoyable dive. It is a very easy dive, because you have someone to do all the navigation for you and it is also a very beautiful dive.

The Introductory Dive provides the chance for people who have never tried Scuba Diving before to experience the wonders of diving on the reef under the guidance of an experienced Dive Instructor.

First of all you are given a brief on the boat explaining a few things that you need to understand as well as letting you know exactly what is going to happen so you are nice and comfortable.

Once at your dive destination you will practice and get comfortable in waist deep water first, and then once everyone is happy with that the tour commences. You will be taken out and guided around the bay amongst the beautiful coral. The instructor will point out different marine life for you while taking care of all the technical side of things. It is a very beautiful experience and also very easy. The Dive Instructor is there to baby sit you as much or as little as you need (if you wish to hold their hand for the entire dive you can). Most people come back and say the diving is easier than the snorkelling

Introductory divers need to sign a medical statement to say that they do not currently suffer from or have a history of: Asthma, diabetes, epilepsy, operations on the lungs, heart or ears, and any medication currently been taken or recent operations/illnesses have to be declared. These forms need to be completed before you arrive a the dive site.

Please let the Operator know at check in if you wish to dive as not pre booking could cause dissapointment later.

Cost: $75.00 for both Certified and Introductory dives, this includes everything. You can indicate this and let the Operator in advanced that you are interested in this activity by clicking the diving option during the booking process. This fee is payable upon arrival.
