Discover this legendary lot of tropical islands on the Great Barrier Reef with a hearty hands-on sailing expedition. Choose to learn the ropes, or relax while sunbaking and snorkelling, along with making new friends!
3 day 2 night sailing holidays are now on offer from Airlie Beach for up to 19 guests to explore the wonderful Great Barrier and the Whitsunday Islands.
Our tours are perfect for adventurous singles, couples and groups normally aged between 18-45. We have no age limit, however you must be ‘young at heart’, fit and able to move about a boat unassisted and understand the adventurous and social nature of our tours. Some under 18’s may be accepted on board by request.
We have just released our brand new sailing holiday itineraries to excite our guests. We now include an island visit to Hamilton Island or Long Island (weather permitting) and a day snorkelling on the outer Barrier Reef (we are the only liveaboard boat to offer this opportunity) to explore the pristine coral and abundant marine life.
While discovering some of the most legendary paradise in existence on the Whitsundays, you’ve chosen to do it on a world famous Maxi Yacht! This renowned vessel has won esteemed races, such as the Sydney to Hobart, Bermuda Cup, and still competes during Hamilton Island Race Week each year.
So if you’re a sailing enthusiast, there’s simply no better boat in Airlie Beach to learn the ropes and hoist the sails!
And for those who seek relaxation in the sun, feel free to lounge on deck, dangle your feet in the sea, and let the islands drift by!
With a friendly and festive atmosphere, you’ll explore the stunning Whitsundays on the Great Barrier Reef by sailing on balmy winds to destinations like the famed Whitehaven Beach, and pristine Hook and Hayman Islands.
You’re welcome to trek through rainforest and explore dazzling lookouts, snorkel in a rainbow of coral, or simply frolic in the azure waves.
Our fun, attentive crew memebers will prepare scrumptious meals for breakfast, lunch and dinner to nourish your endeavors, and the nighttime’s are spent stargazing and sipping wine in good company.
Which is accompanied by the laughter and chatter of new friends on this once-in-a-lifetime journey.
