Townsville Flexi group of 16 people departed Townsville on South Passage for a voyage around the Palm Island group. Today we travelled from Townsville to Herald Island for a swim and a walk, Some of the group jumped off the boat and some went to shore for a walk and on that walk a lot of time was spent decoconut the trees, After all that effort we received two coconuts. On the way we saw a humpback whale and calf which was extremely exciting to all on board.
Following the break at Herald Island we sailed almost due north and anchored for the night just off Esk Island (Soopun) just off the Great Palm island. Sea was extremely calm and a gibbous moon shining on the water.
