Description

Discover a trove of natural treasures during a 3-day sailing adventure on board Spank Me, an 82-foot racing yacht. Cruise around the Whitsunday Islands and glimpse a stunning array of marine life during captivating snorkel excursions each day.

Meet a friendly captain and a skilled crew near Airlie Beach and get acquainted with the seaworthy Spank Me. Despite its whimsical name, this sophisticated sailing vessel doesn't play games. Clocking in at 82 feet (25 metre), the racing yacht was once used to train American Naval sailors. Get acquainted with the ship, and then take off, gliding towards the Whitsunday Islands—a continental collection of atolls that plunge into the Coral Sea beside the breath-taking Great Barrier Reef.

Fine tune the tour to make the most of your interisland explorations. Get to know the captain and crew, and assist them by hoisting the mainsail and dropping anchor at each exciting destination. Or, get outfitted with a mask and flippers and snorkel to your heart's content. See fascinating marine life including resident dugong—curious relatives of the manatee that adore the waters near the UNESCO-listed Great Barrier Reef.

Every evening, roll up your sleeves and help the crew prepare mouth-watering specialities like roast chicken, spaghetti bolognese, and healthy green salad. Or, position yourself at the ship's prow where you can watch the sky change from buttery yellow to blazing magenta as the sun dips below the horizon.

This was a nice trip in a beautiful area. For sailors it might be somewhat underwhelming experience as guests are truly passengers minimally involved into the actual yacht operations. The crew was competent and very friendly. These waters offer lovely snorkeling however are infested with a deadly and invisible jellyfish. In effect, you can jump in only in a full body wet suit. Even then, your face,hands and feet are exposed to a very painful attack. It's a bit like a romantic adventure with a beautiful woman who is HIV positive.
