General Information
For those contemplating exclusive chartering we offer the following information.

Exclusive chartering on Marcrista gives you the flexibility to have a luxurious floating home where the scenery changes on a daily basis. The Great Barrier Reef is one of the most spectacular, pristine reefs in the world, offering beautiful vistas both above and below the surface. The lagoon area between the Outer Reef and the Coast offers excellent, relaxed sailing, access to uninhabited islands and spectacular coastal rainforests areas North of Port Douglas. You can settle into the comfort of your own accomodation and then fully utilise your holiday time without further personal dislocation.

We talk to our guests prior to their charter so we can personalise their time aboard.This may encompass their menus, sailing time, diving, on shore activities, music and videos.

We are happy to advise on any land content, tours or accomodation our guests may require outside their time on Marcrista.

Guests are advised to pack economically and use soft bags which can be stored easily. Soft white or gum soled shoes for boat use only, and shoes for use on land, are essential.

The Great Barrier Reef which stretches approximately 2,200 km along the east coast of Australia is one of the most beautiful natural wonders of the world. There are over 1000 islands that are easily accessible from North Queensland.

Port Douglas is very well positioned in terms of acces to the outer reef and some of the best dive sites exist in this area. Just north of Port Douglas, the reefs come right ot the shore and meet the tropical rain forests. A myriad selection of marine life abounds in these pristine waters. The diversity and colour of corals, large and small fish, giant clams, turtles, starfish, and various plant life is breathtaking.

To fully maximise diving oppurtunities, the best option is for Marcrista to liase with the most professional and knowledgable Dive Masters in these areas. They have access to the premium locations and excelent local knowledge of the marine life.

Additonal costs will apply for diving and guests will be notified of charges prior to commencement of charter. Certified divers will need to provide proof of certification. Beginners can also participate and be instructed in either diving or snorkelling at an additional cost.
