If you have a penchant for luxury cruises, then what better place to indulge your passion than cruising around the Great Barrier Reef on board a luxury 32 metre motor launch called the M.Y. Flying Fish?
Below, you will discover two incredible luxury cruise packages that are to die for, both aboard the magnificent Flying Fish, complete with its own helipad.
This adventure is truly the pinnacle of what’s on offer aboard the M.Y. Flying Fish. The Highlights of the Great Barrier Reef cruise spans 4 nights and 5 days and gives you ample opportunity to enjoy your time on board, as well as see many of the sights and visiting numerous tropical islands on the way.
Day one sees the yacht departing from Townsville to voyage to the Palm Island group. As you journey to your first destination, you’ll enjoy a gourmet lunch and upon arrival at Palm Island, you can snorkel before the vessel moves on to anchor in Hazard Bay on Orpheus Island for sunset drinks.
Day two is even more exciting. Following breakfast onboard and some snorkelling in the Palm Islands area, the Flying Fish will take you to unspoilt, Heritage-listed Hinchinbrook Island. After exploring this mysterious island, take some time out to do some Barramundi fishing before anchoring in Zoe Bay for the night.
Still on Hinchinbrook Island, trek to Zoe Falls on day three before returning for breakfast and voyaging on to amazing Dunk Island. After lunch, enjoy a guided snorkel at Muggy Muggy Beach. This is followed by sunset drinks up on the yacht’s helicopter deck.
After exploring Dunk Island’s hinterland, day four sees you travelling to Pelorus Island, where you’ll arrive in the afternoon for canapes and drinks on the beach. Following some more snorkelling in the pristine waters around Pelorus Island, everyone will bask in the start light for a fun-themed evening meal.
Day five means a return to Townsville. Savour your final breakfast on board the M.Y. Flying Fish whilst steaming towards the mainland.
This cruise aboard the M.Y. Flying Fish involves staying on the luxury yacht while it anchors at Stunning Orpheus Island. While you get to take advantage of everything the Flying Fish has to offer as your base and accommodation for a minimum of 4 nights, you can spend your days and evenings exploring Orpheus Island, its exclusive resort and making full use of the island’s amenities and leisure equipment.
Just some of the things you can do at Orpheus Island include snorkelling the pristine shallow waters to explore the coral reef, go paddling on a kayak, sailing on a catamaran, taking a trek through the unspoilt wilderness of the island’s interior, learning how to make your favourite cocktails in the evening, venturing off on a walk at low tide, enjoying a magnificent sunset cruise, or even taking out a motorised dinghy so you can explore all the bays, beaches and waterways Orpheus Island has to offer. There truly are some hidden gems in this exclusive location. If you just want to chill out, laze around the resort’s infinity pool or indulge with a pampering at the day spa.
There’s so much to see and do onboard the Flying Fish and on Orpheus Island.
