Turtle spotting in the Whitsundays with Derwent Hunter

More turtle and dolphin encounters on Derwent Hunter

Turtles and dolphins and drones and beautiful days for sailing the Whitsundays

We’ve been loving our daily trips recently. Not only have we been treated with wonderful customers, happy to be spending the day sailing the islands with us, but we’ve also had plenty of happy wildlife visitors as well!

We’ve been greeted by dolphins and plenty of turtles, delighting guests with their inquisitiveness.

Keep scrolling to see a couple of lovely videos sent to us by our guests.

Dolphins on the starboard side!

This pair of dolphins joined us for a sail home, cruising along beside the ship for some time. What a treat to see!

Our buffet lunches are real crowd pleasers, and you can buy a beer or wine too if you’re in the mood.

We’ve been blessed with steady 10-15 knot winds which means we get where we’re going fast and efficiently, and our customers get to experience the true power of a beautiful big tallship under full sail.

Instagram traveller @a_little_risky took some lovely snaps and a short video of the lads helping putting up the sails…
