Charter Guide: Great Barrier Reef

27 June 2024

Booking a superyacht charter in the Great Barrier Reef is a bucket list experience for yachties. The world’s largest coral reef ecosystem boasts a staggering amount of diversity, so it is important to know the distinctions when deciding on which area to discover by yacht. Here, we detail the contrast in charter styles between The Whitsundays and the northern regions of Port Douglas and Lizard Island.

Island Hopping and Relaxation

The southern part of the reef is perfect for family vacations and island hopping, akin to the Bahamas or Caribbean cruising. It provides a mix of relaxation and indulgence, ideal for those looking to unwind aboard a luxurious superyacht.

Adventure in the North

The northern region, including Port Douglas and Cairns, offers a distinct experience with greater distances between landmasses. This area is a haven for underwater activities like diving and game fishing, making it a hotspot for adventure seekers and remote cruising enthusiasts.
