We island hop to Normanby and then Dunk Island and wait there for quieter conditions, swimming, bush walking, and just relaxing!
The start of our trek south, with Murray & Maree on board.
We go back to a couple of coral cays, have a tedious sail tacking into wind and have a word or two to say about some boats’ lack of anchoring etiquette!
We take refuge at Low Isles during a few days of blowy weather. The highlight: the birdlife, the low light: the reef!
What a difference calm weather makes at the Undine and Mackay Reefs! Time for some fun in comfort.
We take advantage of a light wind forecast to continue further north, exploring coast and reefs up to latitude 16 S… just past Cape Tribulation.
A sail to Norman Reef promises a few interesting days of snorkeling but ends prematurely.
