The opulent M.Y. Flying Fish is one of the latest and greatest ways to experience the Great Barrier Reef. It’s currently moored just off one of Australia’s most pristine islands and lets you explore the tropical paradise of Orpheus Island from the comfort of your own private yacht.

This is a world-class vessel with four staterooms, including a master with a luxe spa bath. Indulgent mahogany and marble finishes flow throughout the interior living areas and ensuites. The yacht also has multiple alfresco dining areas, sun loungers, a helipad and a saloon lounge on the fly deck for sweeping views of the crystal blue waters.

Just picture yourself cruising from one untouched island to another, stopping to sunbathe, snorkel or kayak, then retiring to one of the decks for drinks and canapes. It’s Australian living at its best.


  1. Highlights of the Great Barrier Reef

If you’re more about the journey than the destination, hop aboard the luxurious M.Y. Flying Fish for a four-night Great Barrier Reef holiday package. Departing from Townsville, the voyage covers some of the reef’s signature highlights, including snorkelling at Palm Island, Barramundi fishing on Hinchinbrook Island and hiking up Dunk Island’s Mount Kootaloo. 

You’ll also have the opportunity to snorkel at various reefs along the way and experience the famous Zoe Falls with its natural infinity pool. Over the course of the four nights, you’ll have chef-prepared meals, quality drinks and snacks and unlimited use of kayaks, reef fishing gear and snorkelling equipment.

Come nightfall, you can toast to another day of unforgettable moments while floating in the heart of the Great Barrier Reef. Then retire to your stateroom to be rocked gently into a deep and peaceful sleep. Life is both luxurious and adventurous aboard the M.Y. Flying Fish.
