Our Tall Ship is famous and guests love to join us from Airlie Beach to cruise the waters of the Great Barrier Reef under sheets of magnificent giant white sails that enable us to skim the aqua waters of the Whitsundays on our way to Whitehaven Beach to explore and snorkel around Dumbell Island.

A day of sailing to remember, to the iconic Whitehaven Beach on a classic 62-ft gaff rigged schooner that has a history in Hollywood made films of yesteryear.

Our 1 day sailing tour to Whitehaven Beach caters for everyone from families with children to the younger at heart who wish to experience the luxury of sailing on a timber Tall Ship built out of North Queensland timber.

We choose to carry only 24 guests to ensure our Whitehaven Beach tours are personalised and memorable for everyone.

We are proud to say that all items onboard our Airlie Beach based yacht are recyclable where possible and we offer chilled water on deck rather than selling plastic bottles and we have enviro-friendly toilets. 

Whitehaven Beach Day Trip – 24 Guests - Tall Ship Sailing

From Airlie Beach board our classic Tall Ship yacht and sail into the azure blue waters of the beautiful Whitsunday Islands with only 24 guests onboard our 64 foot schooner.

Leaving Airlie Beach at 7.30am we begin a magnificent day of sailing towards Whitehaven Beach where guests can climb to Hill Inlet lookout and enjoy the famous views across the sandy inlet and the waters of the Great Barrier Reef. 

During our sailing tour guests are asked if they would like the experience of hoisting the sails or just sitting back and relaxing on deck taking in one of the best scenery’s in the world right here in Australia on the World Heritage listed Great Barrier Reef

Sail out across Whitsunday Passage through Hook Passage to Whitsunday Island.

Witness the ever changing blue hues of the calming waters of the Whitsunday Islands wash past the bow of the boat with a rush of whitewater.

Keep an eye out for dolphins as they love to ride the bow waves and spend time looking at the guests onboard the Tall Ship. 

During the months of July and August there is a high chance that you very well may see breaching Humpback  Whales travelling through these waters.

Explore Whitehaven Beach and Hill inlet

Disembark the yacht at Tongue Bay to explore Whitehaven Beach and climb the walking trail to Hill Inlet lookout.

Spend some selfie time enjoying Whitehaven Beach before reboarding the schooner and setting sail for a fringing reef to enjoy some snorkelling, exploring all the coral bommies and looking for colourful fish and other marine life.

Meals and Beverages

We enjoy a picnic lunch onboard the sail boat and guests may purchase drinks from our fully licenced bar or just drink the cold water that is provided

Snorkel Tour Whitsunday Islands

We spend the afternoon doing some more exploring and snorkelling before setting the sails for Airlie Beach. 

The crew will provide a nice refreshing fruit platter to enjoy along the way as guests chill out on the decks and reminisce about the day you just experienced on the Great Barrier Reef in the Whitsunday Islands.
