Come Sail Away : Whitsundays to Daydream Island

Here is the second part of my 2 day sailing trip through the Whitsundays.

We started off this morning with a lovely 2 hours sail followed by a quick snorkel along Caves Cove.

To anyone thinking about doing a sailing trip along the Whitsundays, I highly recommend. It is a fantastic way to see the islands and it’s quite refreshing to try out other methods of transportation while traveling.

After our sailing trip was complete, the skipper dropped us off at this super fancy resort on Daydream Island.Β  Although the resort reminded me of a Little Mermaid theme park, it did give these stunning views of the Whitsundays.

The resort happened to have several salt ponds in which marine life swam around in. So later that afternoon we got the opportunity to take part in a fish feeding, which consisted of feeding clown fish, petting stingrays and holding sharks.

Last, to top off the evening we went to a pool party out at Gilligans. Time to rock out Whitsunday style!
