Hi all, We are safe and well at Lizard Island. Very poor internet reception so it is hard to do blogs. We have written a couple and will post them as soon as we can. Lizard is a fantastic place, snorkeling on the reef every day, great walks, including cooks lookout. Crystal clear waters, beautiful beaches, wake boarding, all round the best place we have been so far. All the boaties have drinks on the beach at 5pm every day, so we are off for a quick snorkel before having a cold beer!! Until next time, stay safe Adam

Hi all, We are moored back at the Meridien Marina at Port Douglas after 2 wonderful days on the Great Barrier Reef. As Lauren has told you we spent much of Thursday snorkeling and feeding the fish at Low Isles we then sailed to Snapper Island and spent a slightly rolly night at anchor. First thing in the morning we headed off for Tongue Reef which was around 10 nautical miles away. We followed some new friends we had met Karen and Tony on their cat "Double Shot" as they had been out to this spot before. The wind was very light which made for slow sailing so we ran on

Today was amazing! We went out to Low Isles, just off Port Douglas. Mac and I got into our snorkeling gear and jumped into the water. Before we knew it we were surrounded by Bat Fish!! And big ones!   Mum had been throwing bread around us!! We saw reef sharks and another massive fish... Of some sort, which was lerking around underneath the back of the boat. We snorkelled over some beautiful coral and saw 4 turtles!! We swam with them and I was videoing with the go pro. Mac even touched them! So cool! Will post some videos shortly!! :) Xxx

Hello everyone, well its certainly been a wonderful trip up the east coast of Australia, and we have had some of the most amazing experiences.  We have reached Port Douglas and are taking the chance to explore the Daintree World Heritage rainforests and Cooktown for the next week or so. It’s really difficult to describe the beauty of this place and the feeling of complete appreciation of our beautiful country.  We have been able to share our journey with some wonderful people, some of whom are our fellow Aussie sailors and others from Canada, the United States and Denmark. One of the most
