Blue water charters with Escape Yacht Charters
Imagine the possibilities, cruising within the greatest of all the seven natural wonders of the world – the Great Barrier Reef.
Departing Fraser Escape base at Urangan Boat Harbour (Hervey Bay, Fraser Island Coast), sail to Lady Musgrave, a 14-hectare uninhabited coral cay with over 1,000 hectares of surrounding reef and an azure lagoon to dive, swim, snorkel, fish and explore.
How does relaxing alongside a coconut palm-fringed anchorage at Middle Percy Island sound? Strolling the shimmering beach at sunrise and taking a dip in the crystal clear waters. Check out the memorabilia shack at West Beach, where for decades, passing boaties have left a little ‘treasure’ for others to find. You might leave some of your own.
Is fishing Swains Reef on your bucket list? This massive reef system off the central Queensland Coast is a revered location for reef and pelagic fishing.
Maybe your itinerary takes you to Great Keppel Island, for reprovisioning or a crew change perhaps?
Head north to the myriad of islands, cays, beaches, inlets up to the Whitsundays group of islands, where you’ll have your own perfect floating base from which to explore this aquatic wonderland.
Anchor up at a deserted island. Dive, swim, snorkel, fish, relax, beach walk, snooze or explore the beautiful Coral Sea under the infamous Queensland sunshine. Get that barby going.
If this sounds like your boating dream, but definitely outside the limits of your recreational tinnie or runabout experience, talk to the Escape team to discuss your eligibility to embark on a Great Barrier Reef blue water cruising adventure.
Of course, some previous experience is required but if you’re a practical and confident person with some experience up your sleeve or have a crew member that has the confidence and/or experience, Escape Yacht Charters would like to hear from you.
If you need a guide or skipper to brush-up on your competence, the Escape team can help with that too. Escape can also provide anaccredited sail training instructor so learning the ropes becomes part of the adventure.
Get your Inshore Skippers certificate or go on to obtain your Yachtmaster Coastal Skipper certificate. Escape can get you all the way to your Yachtmaster Open Ocean certification. All this while you are navigating the wondrous Great Barrier Reef with your family and friends.
