  • The chance to languish on the pure white shores and turquoise beaches of an authentic deserted tropical island!
  • On this tranquil yet invigorating cruise, you’ll fall in love with snorkelling the magically-coloured Great Barrier Reef!

Join us and sail the Whitsundays on our 2.5 day liveaboard snorkel tour of the reefs and islands on the World Heritage listed Great Barrier Reef of Australia.

Our sailing tours around the Whitsunday Islands are not for folks looking for a wild party boat, we offer a more mature relaxed sailing holiday for those guests and couples that wish to see as much as possible in the time given.

If you envision a tropical cruise as an uplifting, yet tranquil voyage, look no further than our lovely yacht. This spacious and luxurious vessel avoids the crowds by catering to a small friendly group of only 15 guests, and sneaks away into the quiet paradise of secluded coves, yet there is plenty of activity and adventurer for the explorer!

On the balmy breeze, you’ll have the opportunity to wind the winches and hoist the sails with an expert crew. Or lovers of relaxation can simply laze on deck with your feet dangling in the azure of the Great Barrier Reef.

You’ll explore the glorious shores and breathtaking lookout at iconic Whitehaven Beach with a guided trek to Hill Inlet, and in a lifetime venture to Hook and Hayman islands, discover the magical coral reefs and abundant marine life on a snorkelling expedition.

This relaxing cruise on board your luxury vessel is perfect for 18-40 year olds, solo travellers, couples and older families. Sumptuous meals and snacks are provided, as well as every need catered for by a welcoming and friendly crew.

Make new lifelong friends and forever memories as you sip wine at night and watch the sunset over these magnificent islands. And be rocked to sleep in your cabin under a tropical moon.

Sailing the Whitsundays in Smaller Groups

Our Whitsunday Islands sailing tours capture the true spirit of sailing, and our yacht is still very much a participant in many renowned Whitsundays and Great Barrier Reef yacht races.

And you’ll find there isn’t a more perfect Whitsundays livaboard yacht for the boating enthusiast! They’ll be ample opportunity to learn the ropes with your expert crew, and even take a turn driving the wind at the helm!

And because this is one vessel that is so regularly utilized in the sailing-world, you’ll do more genuine sailing than most other boats by using an eco-friendly and balmy breeze, rather than the engine!

Offering eight single bunks and two private double/twin cabins and 2 double bunks which can be booked for a little extra, this tour is ideal for guests wanting to experience the fast paced sailing adventure in comfort!

Yet for those who delight in relaxation, this is a brilliant chance to dangle your legs over deck in the azure Great Barrier Reef, and venture on sublime coral reefs with mesmerizing marine life on a sensational snorkelling safari.

And after each day of discovery, you’ll spend your evenings in cozy ambience sipping wine under the stars.

Among the 74 isles in this superb tropical collection, you’ll visit a few outstanding exceptions. The Whitsunday Passage leads to the famed Hook and Hayman islands, both remarkable for diverse beauty.

Hayman will secure a place in the heart of wildlife lovers; with its sanctuary-like coves a haven for kookaburras, sea-eagles, and rainbow lorikeets. Likewise, the fanning coral acts as a natural aquarium to turtles, rays and rainbow reef fish, not to mention dolphins and whales in the cooler months.

Hook Island is an extraordinary domain of enchantment; from a sublime trek to the peak with mysterious hand-painted caves, to the cascading waterfalls cusped by rainwater rock-pools.

Even the sail along the coastline is mesmerizing with its everlasting image of mountainous rainforest. See the endless blue skies, and tapering slopes reflected in the mirror-like lagoon of Nara Inlet.

While anchoring the night at secluded coves in the magical Whitsundays, the evenings can be any dream you envision. There is little you’ll find more beautiful than the mesmerizing sight of a sunset over tropical islands and shimmering lagoons.

In welcoming camaraderie within this cozy group, you can watch the moon rise over swaying palms and stargaze in the island twilight. 

For those who love the idea of simply zoning out after an adventurous day, feel free to watch on movie on the flat screen TV, or read in the spacious saloon before the waves rock you to sleep.
