We had one week to complete our mission: Explore the Whitsundays Bareboat Charter.

A good de-briefing on day one sent us on our way across the Whitsundays Passage, with some excitement and trepidation for what lay ahead; our journey was soon to be an exciting adventure!

As the waves washed against the hull, the pressures of normal life also washed from our minds as we began our mission.

We explored inlets and sheltered in coves early to bed and early to rise with some exhilarating sailing.  In between all this was great food, sundowners and conversation what could really top it off would be to see some wildlife!

We were not to be disappointed:

A Marlin fish jumping through the water;
A turtle, that after three breaths, we still couldnt catch on the camera as he circled the boat in the evening;
A pod of dolphins, passing the boat on a morning sail;
Sea eagles flying high and circling their nest on land at Cid Harbour;
Snorkelling with the many delightful coloured coral and fish;
After many claimed sightings of whales in the distance, we were delighted on our last day when, screaming in to Airlie Beach on a swift reach at 8.2 knots, we slowed down  to be blessed by the sight of a whale and her calf words cannot describe,  nor a camera reflect that special moment.

Mission accomplished with some extras!
