Sailing

Whether you’re a keen sailor, or just eager to feel wind in your hair as you sail into the sunset, there’s an adventure to suit in Queensland’s ultimate sailing destination – The Whitsundays. 

  

Simply choose a sailing holiday that suits you and your shipmates.

  • Sun yourself on the deck, let your legs dangle over the edge and settle in for a sailing day trip around the Whitsunday Islands. The journey to the top snorkel spots and gorgeous beaches is just as eye-popping as your final destination.
  • Settle in a little longer on crewed overnight sailing tours. You’ll see more of the islands and feel like you’ve got the place to yourself once the day-trippers have gone home. See the sun set and stars come out over the islands as you anchor in for the night.
  • Be your own captain and navigate the 74 islands of the Whitsundays on your very own private sailing adventure. Do what you want, when you want. You’ll get the low-down and how-to tips from your skipper-yourself boat charter operator.
  • Once you’ve got a taste of the sea-salt on your lips why not pick up some pirate skills by learning to sail at a Twilight Sailing Session at the local yacht club or while you’re on tour.
