Sail throughout the waters of the Whitsunday Islands and flit from one island paradise to the next.

The Whitsundays offer some of the world’s best sailing and cruising holidays. The combination of a warm climate, steady breezes, clear turquoise waters, secluded coves and anchorages, fringing reefs and isolated beaches is irresistible. Step onboard a luxurious yacht or catamaran and set sail for your Whitsundays adventure. Drop the anchor in a secluded cove, take a dip or snorkel over fringing reefs with myriads of colourful fish and corals.

You can do as much or as little as you like while exploring the waterways of The Whitsundays, the Heart of Sailing. Navigate your own holiday, join other travellers on a packaged overnight sailing adventure or hire a skipper to pull the ropes while you unwind on deck.

Whatever your choice, when you first step aboard your vessel you will feel invigorated with the anticipation of your sailing adventure. You are guaranteed fun, excitement, relaxation, exploration and an experience you will treasure forever and sunsets you will never forget.

BAREBOATING

Bareboating (skipper yourself) sailing is the kind of holiday that gets addictive and many travellers come back year after year, hire the same boat again and visit the 74 islands of the Whitsundays. Firstly, bareboats really aren't bare at all - it's like hiring a houseboat. You can hire a fully equipped, and generally rather luxurious, vessel for a week or so of sailing in The Whitsundays, where you get to 'skipper yourself' and choose your own course for the duration of your holiday.

OVERNIGHT CREWED SAILING

With the largest fleet of crewed sailing vessels in the Southern Hemisphere, The Whitsundays offers some of the world’s best sailing and cruising holidays.

Step onboard a luxurious yacht or catamaran and set sail for your Whitsundays adventure. Join other travellers on a packaged overnight sailing adventure or organise a private charter to pull the ropes while you unwind on deck. The choice is yours.

DAY TOURS

There is a variety of day tour options to get out and explore the Whitsunday Islands and Great Barrier Reef. For those looking for a more relaxed and laid back tour, enjoy a cruisy sailing tour around the islands and let the wind be your guide or sit back and enjoy the comfort of an air-conditioned catamaran as you make your way around The Whitsundays.
