Day 1

You will be greeted at Coral Sea Marina Resort at 12.30pm by our friendly crew. Jump on board the vessel Wildcat and cruise at high-speed to the fringing Great Barrier Reef. Here you can enjoy some snorkeling with the resident turtles and coral fish, or relax on a pool noodle whilst observing the beautiful soft coral. The next stop is the idyllic Paradise Cove Resort. The boat will glide onto the sand and you can climb down and make your way across the sandy beach to the breathtaking resort that is waiting for your exclusive use.

After a detailed tour of the exclusive resort, you will be shown to your room. You have a few spare hours before dinner that can be filled however you like. Play pool, tennis, paddle board, kayak, walk on the beach, football, chill by the pool/spa or simply relax in a hammock and take in the tranquility of Paradise Cove. The hot spa and pool is a great place to relax while the crew prepare the delicious chicken curry for dinner. When dinner has been cleared, the crew will light the fire down on the beach and you can try your hand at roasting some marshmallows. After counting shooting stars you can head back to your room and fall asleep to the sounds of nature in the most comfortable bed you have slept in for a long time.


Day 2

Wake up and head down to the main house for a continental breakfast and fruit salad before packing your bags and heading off on a Whitsunday Adventure!

Wildcat will depart at approx. 8 am to Whitehaven Beach and the amazing Hill Inlet Lookout. Once you’ve taken those once in a lifetime pictures at Hill Inlet, you can stroll down to the silica sand and do some exploring. Make sure to look in the shallows for baby sharks and stingrays! After a couple of hours soaking up the sun on the beach, you should be ready to head home to Airlie Beach.

The ride home takes about 45 minutes, allowing you time to stare out across the islands and reflect on your recent amazing adventures.
