Sunset Lady

Chartered: 28 Nov 2010

Arrived at Airlie the day before to make last minute preparations for a week aboard Sunset Lady still did not get it all done, but we were on holidays, so what does time matter?
Set sail for the wide blue yonder after a shake down and get-to-know-the-boat session all very efficient and professional.  Headed for the best dive spots at the top of Hooke Island, being pushed along by a fresh NW breeze in dazzling sunshine and gliding through glittering waters.  Dragged a lure and spent 30 minutes trying to get a nice yellowfin tuna aboard to enjoy the fun, but only to see it wipe off on the hull plenty more fish in the sea!  Got too hot so rigged a catch line and bailed overboard so refreshing..
Spent lots of time at Butterfly Bay, Manta Ray Bay and the Pinnacles just what everyone said spectacular, especially the massive GTs and Bat Fish at Manta Ray.  Overnighted at Border Island and Chalkies memories of Melbourne Uni dive trips in the 70s (it was way different back then however!)
Did the Whitehaven bit for the rest of the crew.  The view from the lookout access from Tongue Bay was brilliant and an amazing photo opportunity location (plus a nice walk to boot).
Experienced a bit of rain (but nothing like later in December and early January) just brilliant waterfalls off the islands and a well washed superstructure.  Made the water a bit dirty but still plenty of clean water locations like Deloraine Island and the Pinnacles.
It was sad to get back to reality and leave our home for the last week, but we have wonderful memories and are already planning our next escape from reality.
