Sailaway VII is a custom built sailing catamaran, sailing daily to the Great Barrier Reef. An Advanced Eco Tourism Operator, Climate Action Leader and National Sustainability Winner, Sailaway innovates an exciting New Eco Adventure, a full day Outer Reef sailing adventure to Mackay & Undine Coral Cays.
The adventure starts with an early departure from Port Douglas Marina. Guests can sit back and relax on the beautiful yacht and set sail to the Coral Cays of Mackay or Undine Reefs. You will enjoy an authentic sailing experience, following the coastline and views of the Daintree mountains.
Once at the protected sites at the Coral Cays, nature activities will include snorkelling over the pristine coral reef with a qualified marine biologist offering reef interpretation on a guided snorkel tour. A glass bottom boat coral viewing tour is also on offer. Premium reef sites showcase abundant marine life, including encounters with turtles and an amazing display of giant clam gardens, beautiful corals and a wide variety of fish.
Exploring the white sands of the coral cays will relax the mind. Soak up the sun, peace and tranquility and swim in turquoise clear waters. Small numbers of guests ensure personal interactive communication with our experienced guides.
Immersed in the northern frontier of Great Barrier Reef, this is the perfect sailing and snorkelling adventure for a conservation minded visitor. Discerning guests can fully enjoy an inspiring full day adventure using wind power to the absolutely stunning cays on the Great Barrier Reef in the most environmentally friendly way!
