Sailing combines all the best of the Whitsundays in one holiday. Your accommodation, meals and touring is all taken care of in one neat package. Accommodation on board varies from shared bunk-style accommodation, similar to a dorm room, right up to luxury cabins with full queen size beds and private ensuites.
Sailing through the famous 74 islands of the Whitsundays gives you a new perspective on a spectacular area. Visit secluded bays and inlets to experience the beauty of nature with hardly another soul in sight. Enjoy stunning sunrises and sunsets over uninhabited islands, and visit spectacular locations and famous landmarks amongst the islands of the Whitsundays.
Crewed yachts provide those with no sailing experience an opportunity to enjoy the pleasures of sailing in the Whitsundays while someone else does the work for them. Take part in any of these adventures from hoisting the sails to feeling what it's like to be at the helm of one of these graceful sailing classics, or if you prefer, you can lie back and relax and let the crew do all the hard work for you.
Cruises go from 1, 2, 3 or 6 nights and the longer you travel, the more you will see and experience. All operators endeavour to visit famous Whitehaven Beach on every trip and some tours visit the outer Great Barrier Reef as well. All cruises include all meals and snorkelling and some offer diving as an optional extra. These sailing trips vary so much from one boat to another, so we highly recommend you seek the advice of a local travel professional to help you choose the vessel that is right for you.
