A day with Illusions 2

Here is what to expect.

A relaxed sailing trip with ample of snorkeling and diving time, followed by a delicious complimentary lunch.

So what's the day like?

Normally we make a round trip cruise from Airlie Beach to Hayman Island, Langford Island and then back to Airlie beach. 80% of the time, as the weather allows, we're sailing.

We have 74 islands to choose from. If we can't do our usual trip, we will find another great location to visit. Rarely, when the weather gets nasty, we will have to cancel for your safety & comfort.

Our regular schedule is as follows
