Whitsundays Sailing adventure: a great experience!

Lexis English students – Valentina, Lavinia and Paola from Italy, tell us about their amazing sailing experience in the Whitsundays 🙂

“We sailed for 3 days on a beautiful catamaran called ‘Wings’. We met people from all over the world and we had a lot of fun with them. We went snorkeling on the Great Barrier Reef, we saw lots of sea life…whales, turtles, sharks and manta rays, but the most exciting adventure was the trip to Whitehaven Beach. The sand is so white almost like snow and the water is crystal blue and beautiful landscapes; the best place we have ever been!!!! We had a great time and we won’t forget it! Thanks to the girls at Student Uni Travel who organised it for us :)”
