8 Day Yacht Charter Itinerary #2

The following is our second suggested yacht itinerary out of Moreton Bay for 8 days. Click our links at the end for our suggested 7 day itineraries and 2-3 night itinerary. 

Day 1: depart Cabbage Tree Creek Marina and sail down to Horseshoe Bay on Peel Island. Take a walk on the beautiful tropical beach or snorkel the wreck of the Platypus. See what you can catch for dinner. Anchor overnight here.

Day 2: Pick up anchor after breakfast and start making your way down toward the Gold coast. Those who are ambitious and want to make a full day of it can make it all the way down to the Broadwater or even Southport if you are wanting to spend some time down at the Gold Coast. For those not so ambitious, overnight out of the channel in any of the out of the way places where you are almost guaranteed to have the place to yourselves. Enjoy the cicadas at night and see what you can catch fishing off your back deck. Break out that kayak to explore the many mangrove islands.

Day 3 & 4: Explore the Gold Coast, Surfers Paradise, Sea World, Dream World, high end restaurants and stores as well as the many beaches, bays and sand bar around the Gold Coast. Soak up all the glitz and glamour that you possibly can! Take the kids to the Aquasplash park. You can anchor directly in front of it if you like. The entertainment options on the gold coast are endless, from seaplanes to helicopter tours. Go out with one of the local SCUBA companies diving in the fresh clear water.

Day 5: Start making your way back up the Bay if you want to spend some time at deserted anchorages during your week as well. Perhaps you want to toboggan down the sandhills on South or North Stradboke?
I think around Jumpinpin in between North and South Stradbroke is an absolutely beautiful spot with white sand and blue waters. Perhaps anchor there or head on up to Dunwich on North Stradbroke.

Day 6: Sail on up to the Sandhills at Moreton Island. Anchor at the Sandhills of Moreton Island. Go tobogganing on the sand, snorkel the mangroves at high tide to see many sting rays, shovel head sharks (don’t worry, they are part of the sting ray family) and turtles. Enjoy sitting on the most beautiful beach around in solitude.

Day 7: Head on up to Tangalooma and snorkel the many wrecks there with thousand of schools of fish to see. Perhaps get a day pass for Tangalooma Resort and enjoy all they have to offer including feeding the dolphins at sunset hour. Anchor at Lucinda Bay overnight.

Day 8: Time to enjoy the 3 hour sail back to Cabbage Tree Creek Marina at Sandgate this morning, so you will want an early breakfast and an early start to get back on time.
