Blizzard's design was born out of a vision of sailing pleasure without compromises. She offers a stylish life out at sea, featuring the latest exterior and interior design. Innovative, spacious, bright and sophisticated, this new yacht offers cruising the turquoise waters of the Whitsundays with infinite confidence.

Experience sailing with unknown ease, but with the speed of a modern performance yacht. Enjoy uninterrupted views as time flies by in a dream of blue water and green islands. And when you hear your inner call for action, unroll the movie star inside you. Go for a peaceful snorkel or ride the sea scooter to find Nemo.

Our tour takes you right amongst the nicest Whitsunday Islands. Each tour visits the beautiful Whitehaven Beach on Whitsunday Island. A short walk takes you up the Hill Inlet Lookout, from where you have a breathtaking view over the curved sands of Whitehaven Beach. Afterwards a sunbake or beachwalk session on the super fine sand is due. The tour stops in various of the dreamy Whitsunday Bays for snorkelling. Underwater you will find a whole world of itself, full of colourful corals and fish.

Our SeaScooter will turn the most convinced landlubber into a marine biologist. Snorkelling provides a great nature experience from a whole new perspective. Just floating in there: you, the corals and the fish. Amongst the islands we regularly visit are Whitsunday, Hook, Dumbbell, Langford, Hayman and Border Island. Every tour is a little different, we travel to the best locations for the individual conditions.
