Our Tours

Solway Lass

Solway Lass is a beautifully maintained square rigged Tall Ship, offering guests a leisurely paced three day three night cruise around the Whitsunday Islands. Solway Lass offers small, but comfortable guest cabins, with air conditioning. Two cabins have private ensuites, while others offer share facilities.

Solway Lass has an amazing history built in 1902, working around the North Sea. In 1915 seized as a prize of war by the British. At the end of WWI, worked as a coal, produce and stone carrying vessel between Liverpool and Scotland. In 1924 sold to a compnay in the Solway Firth where she was renamed Solway Lass. When WWII broke out the Germans seized SL where she was used to supply their armed forces. During the war SL hit a mine and was badly damaged, however the Germans repaired the hull because SL was useful as a sail-powered icebreaker. After WWII SL served in the South Pacific as a Cargo Vessel. In 1983 a Sydney businessman purchased SL in Fjii. From 1983 to 1985 SL was rebuilt and in 1988 took pride of place in the 1st Fleet re-enactment of the tall ships into Sydney Harbour. In 1999 SL relocated to the Whitsundays.
