Whitsunday Fever Posted by Jeffrey on October 25, 2003 in Airlie Beach, Australia
So folks I survived my sailing trip in the amazing Whitsunday Islands.... survived?! .... nah, I loved the whole thing. I went sailing on the catarmaran called Tongarra and it was a blast. It was 3 days and 2 nights with 17 other people, on the water. We sailed, snorkled, swam, beached, photo'd a lot. I had never snorkled before this trip and I gotta say that the reef was awesome. I saw beautiful coloured coral and fish and I saw a giant sea turtle and also a 2 foot long fish which could fit my fist in his mouth, I was scared he would bite my toes off.... so wonderful! We slept on the deck of the boat under the stars and partied. We had pretty good food for meals and crew were a cool bunch of people (the 3 of them). We stopped in a couple different places fr snorkling on the reef... you'll be able to see my underwater photos later when I get them developed. I saw the most white sand on Whitehaven Beach and swam in the most blue water I have ever been in... paradise yo! I finally got some colour on my upper body... don't worry, I was putting sunscreen on like a mother.
