Whitsunday Islands Luxury Small-Group Sailing Experience

Whitsunday Islands Luxury Sailing Experience

In the morning, board your luxury 49-foot (14.9m) sailing yacht at Shute Harbour to begin your full-day sailing tour. After meeting the experienced crew and listening to a safety briefing, grab a seat and set out to sea! Your captain provides informative commentary on the region’s marine life and island history as you cruise.

The choice of itinerary and activities is up to your small group. Need some suggestions? Make morning stops at Blue Pearl Bay or Butterfly Bay for snorkeling, swimming and other water sports. After, cruise to Luncheon Bay where you anchor and tuck into a gourmet lunch. In the afternoon, visit Bali Hai and Langford Reef. You'll stay refreshed with morning and afternoon tea as you sail between locations.

Your sailing tour can be as restful or as active as you like. Relax and enjoy the amenities of your luxury boat, perhaps sipping wine or beer as you sunbathe on deck. If you would like to learn to sail, the captain is happy to provide instruction. Help to hoist the sails, take the helm, and sharpen your navigation skills!

After an memorable day of sailing and exploring, return to Shute Harbour to end your tour.
