Email Confirmation Details

Whether you’re looking forward to snorkelling the Great Barrier Reef or simply soaking up the sun on the sands of Whitehaven or Airlie Beach, OzSail can make it happen. Once your holiday plans are made, you’ll want to be sure your departure information is accurate and up-to-date. We can help.

All of our vessels leave from Coral Sea Marina (Meeting Point C) under the umbrellas on the right-hand-side of the two buildings.

We advise all of our guests to call (0499 697 245) and reconfirm their booking 48hrs before departure so we can ensure we have all the necessary dietary requirements/food allergies and ensure you meet at the correct time.


No large backpacks or suitcases are allowed on-board our vessels. Please only bring bags the same size as an airline carry-on.
Most hostel/hotels in Airlie beach have bag storage facilities for bigger bags.
There is NO bag storage at the marina and you face missing your departure if you bring bags that are not allowed.

In a small soft bag (enviro safe), we suggest that you bring the following:
Travel voucher from your booking agent.
Light clothing/warm clothing in cooler months (May – September)
Sunscreen (30+ highly recommended)
Bath towel and beach towel
Insect repellent
Favourite music
Alcohol (no glass please): NO MORE THAN 24 cans of beer OR 4 ltrs cask wine OR 1 ltr spirits.

Glass bottles or red wine.
Sleeping bags or pillows.
Passport or important travel documents
Shampoo and conditioner (for environmental purposes)
Plastic bags (they kill our wildlife and smother our coral)
OzSail is not responsible for any property you take on board the vessel. In particular, we strongly encourage you to take waterproof cameras rather than expensive digital cameras. Your electrical equipment will be ruined if it comes in contact with saltwater.

If you haven’t already confirmed with us about food allergies and/or dietary requirements, please call us ASAP to modify your booking.

All main meals are included. However, if you think the fresh air might make you extra hungry, you may want to bring some extra snacks as well as any other flavoured drink such as orange juice or soft drinks.


Welcome to the tropics! Although our winters may be cooler, our summer months (November -March) can be extremely hot and humid, especially downstairs on a boat. Unless you are accustomed to living in this climate, you may find it slightly uncomfortable, especially at night when you are sleeping. Please be prepared for this.


An alcohol policy is in place on Mandrake. Each guest can take a maximum of 24 cans of beer OR 4 ltrs cask wine (goon) OR 1 ltr of spirits, any more than this will NOT be allowed on board. All alcohol, soft drinks, and bottled water must be purchased prior to boarding your vessel. (Please note, we do not allow glass bottles on board).


We provide tap water on all our vessels, however, it isn’t cold and some people don’t like the taste of it. During our summer months, we strongly encourage you to bring bottled water. We recommend at least 2 litres per day. Tea and coffee breaks are generally in the morning and afternoon.


If you are not sure whether or not you may suffer from travel sickness, we suggest taking travel sickness tablets. Our trained crew will assist as much as possible in making you comfortable but they are not allowed to provide you with any medication.


Masks and snorkels are all included in the price of your trip and will be distributed at the meeting point.


Wearing a Lycra stinger suit will prevent UV exposure and significantly reduce your risk to marine stingers. OzSail requires that all passengers wear a full-length stinger suit or wetsuit if you wish to swim and or snorkel from our vessels.

You will be fitted at the meeting point and these are all-inclusive in your ticket price.


We strongly encourage all guests travel with travel insurance with coverage for the following situations: Damaged property (You will be on a boat surrounded by seawater).

Medical emergencies including ambulance cover

Travel cancellation & interruption

Please ensure that you read all of the above carefully.

On the date of departure, please ensure you are at the meeting point at Abell Point Marina (South Village) before the scheduled departure time. It is critical that the vessel leaves on time.

It will take you 20 mins to walk to Abell Point Marina from the main street of Airlie Beach. If the ocean is on your right-hand side you are walking in the right direction.


At the end of your sailing adventure, OzSail has booked you a VIP table at Beaches Backpackers at 6:30 p.m. for dinner and drinks followed by free entry and more VIP treatment at Paddy’s Shenanigans, Airlie’s iconic party spot.

We recommend that you get to Airlie Beach one day before departure and leave Airlie Beach the day after you return to land, to enjoy the after-party.
