The beach is totally empty because it is jelly fish season and no one goes in the water!!!! It is very quiet.
This worked well for me as I was able to pick up a cruise at stand by price which was a lot less than I expected to have to pay.
The crew and catering were great and there was snorkelling in the Whitsumday bays.
You might ask how you go snorkling in the jelly fish season - well the answer is a stinger suit - which is a light weight wet suit, which covers most of you up.
We didn't actually see any jelly fish but it is definately a case of better safe than sorry. The reef was great we went to 3 different locations and the coral was looking great with loads of fish, all very colourful and a variety of shapes and sizes. No pictures but I am sure you all know what fish look like!
It was a lovely interlude after so much budget travel but it will be back to the Greyhound bus and YHA hostels or I will have to cut the trip short!
