A typical day on Lady Enid
A day on board Lady Enid is like no other sailing trip in the Whitsundays. A cut above, Lady Enid promises barefoot luxury and comfort, with a highly attentive level of service.
Delectable meals are provided, and sparkling wine is served with antipasto in the afternoon. Your enjoyment of the day is our highest priority and we aim to leave you with a joyous and memorable experience of the Whitsundays as we explore the beautiful sand cay of Langford Island.
Snorkelling is a big feature of the day, with beautiful coral gardens to explore. Langford Island is also a known turtle hot spot, so lucky guests will be able to see these majestic creatures in their natural habitat.
Pick Up from Airlie Beach
We offer a courtesy pick up from your accommodation between Cannonvale and Jubilee Pocket and take you to the Coral Sea Marina for departure. If you are staying at an Air B&B outside of these locations we can provide you with the closest pick up location or alternatively you can make your own way to Coral Sea Marina, South Side / M arm.
Once onboard Lady Enid you will be introduced to our who crew will show you where to stow your bags and shoes (it’s best to go barefoot on the boat). You will be given an introduction to Lady Enid’s features and a safety briefing on sailing out from Coral Sea Marina at Airlie Beach.
You are given a courtesy bottle of spring water which can be refilled throughout the day as required. Lady Enid also makes sunscreen available if you do not have your own.
Your Whitsunday sailing adventure begins
You can freely move around the vessel and take advantage of the cushioned seating.

Arrival at Langford Island
Lady Enid will typically arrive at Langford Island by mid-morning and moor offshore. Our crew will transfer guests to the Langford Island sand cay by dinghy.
Once on the sand cay, guests will have some free time to enjoy all the island has to offer.
Join our crew for a moderate-rough guided walk up along the stone step track to the Langford Island lookout. We will take time for photographs and to take in the views along the cay over Hook and towards Hayman Islands.
We then make our way back down to the beach for some time to relax or snorkel. Also known as ‘One Foot Island’, Langford Island’s long sand cay gives the illusion of walking on water as the tide rises.
The coral gardens just off the island are teeming with fish and coral, and are a known turtle feeding ground. Lucky guests may get the opportunity to snorkel with a turtle!

On completion of lunch we sail to our second island snorkelling site. Snorkelling is optional and guests not taking part in snorkelling can sit and enjoy a cool beer or glass of wine from the bar. We spend approximately 40 minutes at this snorkelling site where you can explore the diversity of corals, fish and all manner of colourful marine life that call the Whitsundays home. All snorkelling equipment is provided including wetsuits if required.
We have a few favourite spots around Hook and Hayman Islands, and will choose the best one on the day.
A fruit platter will be served after snorkelling.
