Day 1: Depart Cabbage Tree Creek and Sandgate, enjoying an exhilarating sail over to Tangalooma for a snorkel at the wrecks. Enjoy the thousands of schools of fish you find there. Perhaps buy a pass and go ashore at Tangalooma Resort to watch the Dolphin feeding at sunset. Anchor overnight at Lucinda Bay off the resort area.

Day 2: Make your way down Moreton Island to the Sandhills area. 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. There is certainly plenty to do to allow this to be a second nights anchorage on Moreton Island. You won’t want to leave this beautiful area!

Day 3: Make your way around the banks off Moreton and Stradbroke cautiously watching the tides. If you have a low tide, get out and watch the birds and visit the old abandoned oyster leases on the Boolong Banks off of Moreton Island. This is the spot to also see many turtles, dolphins and Dugongs around here. Head on over to Amity Point or Myora Point on North Stradbroke Island to anchor overnight.

Day 6: Take a trip up the Brisbane River! For a change of scenery, the city is beautiful while viewing it from your own private yacht. Spend the day and anchor for the evening in the CBD to take in some nightlife, or head back down the river again and anchor at St Helena Island

Anchor overnight.
