Whitsundays Luxury Sailing Holidays
Lynne & John Boyce would like to welcome you to their yacht “Sydney Sundancer”, which some say is a five star floating resort. Sailing, snorkelling, scuba diving, reef walking, whale watching, uninhabited island exploration and gourmet meals together with award winning wines are just some of the daily highlights you will experience. Lynne and John are the key to your enjoyment of this water wonderland. For more than 20 years they have, personally introduced their guests to places of rare natural beauty on deserted islands, in the inter-tidal zone & under the water.
On Island bushwalking expeditions guests can appreciate much of the Australian wilderness experience, including Aboriginal caves complete with ancient paintings. At low tide, Lynne will guide you on fascinating expeditions on the drying reef. Her 30 years experience of conchology, enables guests appreciate the wonders of nature in this little seen world, as she identifies the cleverly disguised reef dwellers. John & Lynne will lead scuba (certified divers only) or snorkeling expeditions but non-swimmers need not feel disadvantaged because their glass bottomed dive tender, aptly named “The Sundance Kid” will ensure non swimmers appreciation of the underwater world also !
Each evening John will anchor Sydney Sundancer in a different bay, so calm that your long stemmed wine glasses are safe on the dining room table, while Lynne prepares such exotic delicacies that the definitive American food & wine guide “Bon Appetit” has requested one of her recipes for publication in the USA! You can be assured that each meal will exceed your expectation and surpass much of what is served in well known Sydney restaurants.
You can even take the wheel to enjoy real “big boat” sailing, harnessing the wind for propulsion, rest assured that John’s intimate knowledge of the area will keep you safe. He and Lynne were chartering even before the Great Barrier Reef Marine Park Authority began issuing permits to operate, so their permit is one of the few “originals” which still allows access to some pristine places that most other charter boats are prohibited from visiting.
John & Lynne prefer to conduct their voyages of discovery during the warm dry months of July through October because the prevailing winds at that time mean the best locations for snorkelling and scuba diving are accessible. Humpback Whale viewing is almost a daily activity during these months also.
Lynne and John’s intimate knowledge of the area and years of experience ensure your satisfaction is guaranteed and that your hopes and expectations for your holiday of a lifetime are exceeded !
