Great Barrier Reef tours, sailing the beautiful Whitsundays for two full days and two nights on board charming timber schooner. An onboard waterslide and paddleboards as well as many fun social activities enhance your exploration of top scenic spots and beaches.

An Airlie Beach sailing adventure like no other awaits you on our 97ft timber sketch schooner.

We take 32 folks sailing in air-conditioned comfort and guests have the choice of both double and single bunks within 3 huge cabins.

We are known as the boat with all the fun toys on board. 

Top spots of the spectacular Whitsunday Islands are revealed from aboard this charming timber vessel.

For 2 full days and 2 nights, explore both above and below the water.

With a large onboard inflatable waterslide, dive board and paddleboard as well as movie lounge, join in the many fun and social activities catering to young travellers.

Enjoy views of stunning scenery and beaches, showcased while you relax on the deck or inside in air-conditioned accommodation.

On many islands, coral reefs grow right from the beach making snorkelling easily accessible, including Hook Island’s Luncheon Bay and Hayman Island’s Blue Pearl Bay.

Sail right up into the narrow, fjord-like Nara Inlet of Hook Island and explore Whitsunday Island.

Highlights include walking across Whitehaven Beach’s pristine white sand to view the aqua waters of Australia’s most photographed beach and a guided bush walk to famous Hill Inlet Lookout.

Fun in the Sun with old world charm

An amazing sailing adventure is offered aboard this 79-foot timber vessel, the spectacular Whitsunday Islands’ iconic spots are revealed over two full days and two nights.

Most of the Whitsundays’ 74 islands remain in their natural state with no major developments, often untouched since Captain Cook sailed through and named them in June 1770.

Leaving from Airlie Beach, a youthful but experienced crew ensures safe passage while the awesome scenery is showcased from the deck.

You can also take the wheel, hoist the sails and grind the winches, if you want.

With a busy itinerary, a fun time is assured with all the delicious meals as well as morning and afternoon teas and drinking water included.

After crossing the Whitsunday Passage, going around the southern side of Hook Island and sailing right up into a picturesque vista, the narrow, fjord-like and heavily wooded Nara Inlet.

Passing through Hook Passage, heading to the north-east of Whitsunday Island, passengers land at stunning Whitehaven Beach to take in more picturesque views from lookouts.

Mantaray Bay is great for snorkelling as is Blue Pearl Bay’s coral beach on Hayman Island before passing North Molle Island on the return journey.

Take a swim in the warm clear waters among an amazing variety of colourful fish and marine life around the coral reefs, with buoyancy noodles available so people can relax in the water.

The boat has a large onboard inflatable waterslide, dive board and standup paddleboards and, organised with young travellers (18-35 years) in mind, there’s a great choice of activities that are fun and great for socialising.

These include games on the beach and as part of evening events and parties.

When the vessel is under sail, relax and sunbake on the expansive deck while taking in the awesome scenery. 

An on-board movie theatre offers yet another alternative for entertainment or for when you want some time out.

Though weather or wind may vary the itinerary, beautiful scenery and beaches are always very much a part of the journey.
