Doco On The Dock Coral Sea Marina Launches Documentary-Style Series

As part of World Boating Day, Coral Sea Marina are launching their own documentary series which will showcase the Whitsundays and display why it is the ultimate cruising destination.

There will be three episodes and they’ll all be relevant to anyone interested in boating in the Whitsundays.
The first episode, “Your Whitsunday Home Port”, explores the top-notch facilities and services offered at Coral Sea Marina, as well as delving into what’s on offer in Airlie Beach and the surrounds. 
Episode 2, “A Local’s Guide to Cruising the Whitsundays” features Sharon Smallwood, a seasoned sailor and long-time resident of the Whitsundays, as she offers viewers an exclusive glimpse into her favourite cruising spots, hidden gems, and must-see locations throughout the Whitsunday Islands. 
The episode includes breathtaking footage of Smallwood’s own sailing expeditions onboard her yacht, Brilliant II, showcasing the diversity of experiences available to boaters in the Whitsundays. From tranquil sunsets to exhilarating hikes, viewers will be immersed in the magic of exploring the region on the water. 
The third episode, “Discover the Great Barrier Reef”, is a deep dive into UNESCO World Heritage-listed Great Barrier Reef. Experienced Master Guides Crystal Lacey, James Unsworth, and Brent Chatterton, offer invaluable insights into the natural wonders of the Great Barrier Reef Marine Park with their extensive knowledge and expertise in marine biology, reef ecology, and sustainable tourism. 
“We set out to create a series of videos that would educate and inspire people to cruise the Whitsundays and Great Barrier Reef region and have hopefully achieved that with help of some industry experts sharing their knowledge and passion with the viewer”, explained Joscelyn O’Keefe, Head of Marketing and Business Development for Coral Sea Marina.
