Itinerary

Perfect for guests seeking a smaller group sailing experience

This luxury vessel captures the true spirit of sailing, and is still very much a participant in many renowned races. And you’ll find there isn’t a more perfect Whitsunday 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 nine single bunks and two private double/twin cabins 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.
