Another of the many visits we intend to make to the Outer Reef. This time we take you to Sudbury and Milln Reefs, offshore of Cairns, a real treat!
After a week of hiding at the top end of the Whitsundays, we had four days of calm conditions, perfect for the outer reef and its crystal clear waters. We started at Bait Reef where we spent three days, then moved to Hook Reef.
Ah the lure of the Outer Reef! Three days at Hook Reef and Bait Reef filled with underwater beauty.
A bit of maintenance and re-provisioning while at Airlie Beach, then we were ready to enjoy some calm conditions for snorkeling at Blue Pear Bay then the Outer Reef!
Our first article for 2019 was published in the January 2019 issue of Cruising Helmsman! What a cracking way to start the new year! This relates to a few of our Outer Reef escapades and our learnings about the ideal conditions for hassle free anchoring and snorkeling at the reef.
After a month in the Whitsundays, we are riding the first of the Northerlies south!
After nearly a week of strong winds, we had a reprieve and a choice to make: climb the Cairn or head out to the outer reef. Gee that’s a bit tough… the reef won of course!
