4 hours ($550) - Sail to 90 Mile Beach, enjoy a walk along this spectacular deserted beach. Or sail into Lochsport a small and charming coastal holiday town. Alternatively sail to Metung a beautiful little lakeside village.

6 hours ($770) - A full day allows for the opportunity of lots of adventure!

We can begin the day with a canal cruise then a romping sail across Lake Victoria to Rotamah Island. There we take a scenic walk across to 90 Mile Beach, followed by around to Raymond Island or back through Paynesville straits and maybe a bit of tracking and gybing practice in Lake King.

We then take a walk up to the entrance - onto some more sailing past Barrier Landing and Fraser Island. On the return trip you can learn some nautical terms and how to tie correct "boatie" knots.
