You decide how to spend the three days that you sail around the Whitsunday Islands (see sample activities in Itinerary) in consultation with your expert captain who provides options and recommendations suited to the interests of your group and the weather conditions.
Your sailing tour can be as active or restful as you wish. If you would like to learn to sail, the trip is
designed to offer that opportunity. Your captain can teach you
how to hoist sails, take the
helm and perform basic navigation.
Your captain steers your luxurious 49-foot (14.9-m) sailing yacht to scenic and uncrowded
spots known only to insiders. Admire the
underwater world when you snorkel and swim at pristine coral reefs. On land, enjoy tropical bush walks on some of the
Whitsunday Islands’ national parkland, and stop at Nara Inlet to see
Aboriginal cave drawings.
Gourmet meals, morning and afternoon tea, and drinks (such
as Australian wine and beers) are included. Most meals can be enjoyed on
the deck, but there is also an indoor area to lounge about. As for
accommodations, there are five cabins on board with shared en-suites
that include hotel-style linens and bath towels for your comfort. (See Pricing for details.)
Head to Shute Harbour to board your boat in
the morning. Start your 3-day sailing tour with introductions and a
safety briefing from the experienced captain and crew. After stowing
your bag, grab a seat and get ready to sail the tropical seas!
After an incredible 3-day sail, return to Shute Harbour or Airlie Beach where your tour ends.
