Southern Explorer – Lindemann Island

Start 0900 – Finish approx. 1600hrs

Meeting Point for this excursion is at Shute harbour (Meeting Point No 2).

Your vessel, Paradise Explorer​, will depart at around 9am after a safety briefing and travel through Long Island Sound past some of the resorts of which all but 1 are currently closed. We will then cross over the Whitsunday Passage south of Pine Island and make our way down to Lindeman and Seaforth Islands where you can exit the vessel to stretch your legs for about 1 hour. Next, we stop for a gourmet picnic lunch on a private beach at the beautiful Cole Island before continuing on our way to Hamilton Island via the Dent passage, Henning Island (toilet stop) and back across the Whitsunday passage to either Shute Harbour or Abell Point Marina, passing around South Molle and Daydream Island if time and weather conditions permit.

Note: This trip is quite lengthy in respect to the distances we will have to cover so is only suitable for calm conditions.
