You will be picked up from your hotel for transfer to the cruise departure point. Join Sailaway VII from Port Douglas for a full day Mackay Cay Outer Barrier Reef cruise. Check-in at the Sailaway office at the marina at 7:30am. Upon boarding, guests are welcomed with local tea and coffee, pastries, and fresh fruit, followed by a safety briefing. The sail departs from Port Douglas, heading towards Mackay Cay Outer Barrier Reef. On the way to Mackay Cay, a reef interpretation talk is provided for guests to learn about the Great Barrier Reef. Upon arrival at the protected mooring at Mackay/Undine Cay, guests are given a snorkel safety briefing, and snorkel equipment is distributed. They are then transferred to the first reef site, where they can participate in various nature activities such as swimming, snorkelling over the coral gardens, and guided snorkel tours by a marine biologist. A tropical buffet lunch is served on board Sailaway VII. After lunch, guests move to the second reef site, where nature activities resume, including a glass bottom boat tour and reef interpretation, free time snorkelling, transfer to the coral cay for exploring, and relaxation and swimming. Afternoon tea, coffee, cakes, and fresh fruit platters are served on board. At 2:30 pm, Sailaway VII sets sail, departing Mackay Cay and sailing back to Port Douglas. During the sail, guests and crew interact on the day’s sightings. The trip ends with the boat arriving at Port Douglas at 5:00pm, then transfer back to your hotel.~~~~
