The Whitsunday Islands

Ahoy captain…

20th, 21st & 22nd September 2017

I’ve had a bit of experience being on a boat in England but I don’t think I’ll ever be able to beat the beauty of the Whitsunday Islands.

We were on the boat, named Broomstick for 3 days and 2 nights, soaked up the sun, snorkelled with the fishes and turtles, watched the sunset and gazed at the stars. It was honestly the best few days spent with some new friends. There were 19 of us on the boat not including the captain, Rob, and 2 crew, Saskia and Mertha who were so great, they had so much knowledge and had the answers to all our questions. The group of people we were on the boat with were good fun too, it was always going to be a risk throwing a bunch of people together on a boat, but because of the boat we had picked luckily it was all similarly minded people. You’re never going to get on with everyone but we found our kind of people and bonded. 

I’m going to let the pictures do the talking with this post so get ready for the stunning views!

Side note… I saw so many more views, like Whitehaven beach, but a lot of the time I didn’t take my phone as I didn’t want to take it off the boat to the beaches! I’m hoping that my mind keeps it in my memory for ever! (if not google will help trigger them).

Final note… we had nachos on an island and it was the best thing I have ever eaten/experienced in my life. 

After we got off the boat we headed back to Airlie beach for a night and I really liked it and would like to go back and explore some more if we have the opportunity. 

Next stop, The Town of 1770, Agnes Waters for Scooteroo…

Speak soon,
