Sunday 18th March 2018

8.30am to 1.30pm

Located in the waters between the Fraser Coast mainland and Fraser Island the Great Sandy Strait is home to a diverse range of marine and coastal wetlands, crystal clear waters, white sandy beaches, native woodlands and dense rainforests. 

Its sheltered bays, sand flats, beaches and mangrove-lined creeks are the perfect spot to enjoy the great diversity of the region.  Home to a stunning variety of wildlife, visitors have the chance to see rare shorebirds using the strait as their breeding grounds, dolphins playing offshore, maybe even dugongs grazing on the seabeds.

We shall cruise past Big Woody Island, the Picnic Islands  & Kingfisher Bay Resort as we meander down the straits right through to the tranquil waters of Gary's Anchorage, approximately 25 nautical miles.  Enjoy our commentary on the history of the area with shipwreck landmarks pointed out along the way.

Morning tea and a buffet lunch of cold meats, fresh salads & bread rolls is served on board whilst you relax and enjoy a leisurely cruise down the straits.  The Spirit of Hervey Bay is licensed, so why not enjoy a cold drink from our well-stocked bar while enjoying the scenery from one of our upper decks?  We also have raffles and live musicians on board to entertain.

Bring your friends and family and enjoy a day out in our beautiful backyard.
