Set Sail in The Whitsunday Islands

Once named ‘The Guinness Clipper’ due to the former task of transporting Guinness beer from the UK to the USA during the 70’s, the vessel now known as the S.V. ATC has been carrying barrels of fun all along!

Your spacious sail boat is not only renowned as the largest liveaboard dive and snorkel boat in the Whitsundays, but likewise has a long reputation for the most fun.

Soon as you step on board your home for the next 2 days and 2 nights, you’ll find your friendly crew professional, yet engaging with good cheer.

The crew also just happens to consist of two dive instructors, in case you’d like to try scuba diving to the depths of the Great Barrier Reef for the first time!

As you pass the Molle Group and Hook Passage, you’ll hear a safety presentation, along with some riveting reef facts and snorkelling tips to enrich your Whitsundays holiday experience!

Welcome to Your Party Boat

At a whopping 34 metres, with three spacious decks, your luxury vessel holds room for a whole lot of fun!

Among your island hopping in the majestic Whitsunday Islands, and alongside snorkelling and trekking the islands, you’ll find this floating paradise a hub of activity in itself.

Not only does it have amazing music available at all times, but with a huge saloon, spacious sundeck and comfy sleeping berths, you can find a spot of relaxation at any time.

Yet if you’re in the mood for thrills and spills, you’ll likewise find a brand new 3 story high waterslide to have you flying into the alluring blue ocean, again and again!

With easy water access from the back deck, you’ll find embarking on an introductory or certified scuba dive a breeze.

Likewise if you’re in the mood to slip into the tropical balmy waters for an afternoon swim.

At night, a new round of festivities begins with a disco party, and stargazing from a 12 seater hot tub!

Explore the Whitsundays

The outstanding Great Barrier Reef is one of the world’s natural wonders, and the Whitsunday Islands are the jewel in its treasured crown.

You’ve chosen your amazing tour amidst a stunning archipelago of sheer tropical paradise.

The 74 islands that make up the Whitsundays are a lavish array of rainforest-covered mountains, cascading waterfalls, breathtaking bush treks, and spellbinding swirls of sandy-aqua coves.

Along with these mesmerizing characteristics, the islands are fringed with phenomenal coral reefs teeming with marine life.

It’s fascinating to think that in Australia’s largest cluster of islands, only 8 are inhabited!

Which means that you’ll have the opportunity to swim in the shallows of an authentic deserted beach!

Hook Island

Hook Island is a dream of rolling mountains, mirror-like lagoons and picturesque bays.

The balmy conditions and azure crystal waters make this a perfect destination for frolicking in the shallows, lying on the sun soaked shores, or indulging in a spot of snorkelling.

One of the more renowned islands on the Whitsundays, Hook embraces travellers from far and wide seeking nature’s magnificence and phenomena.

Any given day could produce spectacular sights in the form of eagles, sea-turtles popping their head up on from the shoreline, and dugongs (sea-cow) meandering along the waves.

Hook Island is a largely unpopulated paradise, with a wild and rugged tropical beauty, and boasts the famed Nara Inlet.

It also has accessible walking treks that lead to mysterious indigenous painted caves, and rock pools formed from rainwater.

Blue Pearl Bay

Hayman Island, one of the smaller in the Whitsunday Passage, is known for an opulent resort, but more so for the stunning beauty and abundant wildlife at Blue Pearl Bay.

The shimmering cerulean waters here are so superb in appearance, and the coral so vividly healthy and colourful, even the fish don’t want to leave!

In which case, this cove boasts it’s very own resident Maori Wrasse; an intricately marked and massive (but friendly) fish, known to follow snorkellers around like a long lost puppy dog!

With an endless array of reef fish for you to discover on a snorkelling safari, the marine life line up will be a featured highlight along with the unending party fun.

You’ll see the startling yellows and greens of Parrot fish and Damsels, and maybe the silvery shadow of a sting-ray.

And from the evergreen of the tropical foliage on the shoreline, keep your eyes peeled for Kookaburras, cockatoos and rainbow lorikeets!

Discover Iconic Whitehaven Beach

Whitehaven Beach will not only be a main feature of your sailing tour, but will showcase in your dreams for a lifetime.

On a guided tourwith our boat crew, you’ll hike to the top of Hill Inlet to see the unforgettable, panoramic swirls of white and aqua below.

This vista happens to be the 4th most photographed view in Australia, and is listed in the top five beaches on the entire planet!

After your trek, nothing will fill your senses with bliss more than wading in the crystal shallows.

Snorkel on the Great Barrier Reef

You’ll find this cruise a frolicking tour of discovery; whether it be dancing with new friends, drinks in a hot tub anchored at islands, or slipping on a mask and fins to snorkel the Great Barrier Reef.

The snorkelling at the Whitsundays is legendary for phenomenal colour and jaw-dropping marine life.

Your brand new buddies and friendly crew will have briefed you on a few snorkelling tips to enrich your experience.

You’ll simply pop on a comfortable snorkel, mask, and fins to glide the surface, and you’ll be ready to witness the most outstanding feature of your cruise!

Below you, a world of rainbow coral formations in the shape of pinnacles, boulders and mountains will unfold.

And among that aquatic kingdom, you could see a silvery sting-ray, or a majestic sea-turtle!

And keep your eyes peeled for Clowns (Nemo) and Damsels; fish that actually change from blue to green right in front of you!

Try an Introductory Dive on the Great Barrier Reef

You won’t need any experience to scuba dive in the Whitsundays, yet you might want to prepare for the most awesome experience of your life! 

The phenomenal Great Barrier Reef is a natural wonder of the world, and the largest living organism on our planet!

After an easy-to-learn lesson from your onboard dive instructor, you’ll explore this phenomenon for 30 whole minutes while breathing easily underwater.

With over 400 species of coral, you’ll glide through breathtaking gardens, pinnacles and mountains (bommies).

The Whitsundays are also home to an endless array of marine life, and unlike snorkelling, you can hover just inches away from a Clown fish colony (Nemo), and enjoy a close up inspection of turquoise Parrot fish as they munch away on coral!

You may also find yourself at the same level (literally) as a ray or sea-turtle! 

Certified Dive the Whitsundays

It’s no secret; every experienced scuba diver knows the Great Barrier Reef is scuba heaven, and on almost every diver’s exploration list.

And the Whitsunday’s are renowned for owning some of the most vividly extraordinary coral known to man.

Yet as you glide the fathoms alongside your experienced diving instructor buddy, one of things you might not expect is the sheer diversity of the marine life here.

Apart from the usual suspects in the form of Angels, Parrots, Clowns (Nemo) and Damsel, the reef is also home to 6 out of the 7 species of sea-turtles on the planet.

This means it’s not uncommon to spot a Loggerhead or rare Olive Ridley.

And with 30 species of whale, dolphin and porpoise, you could wind up with the thrill of your life seeing a Bottlenose or Humpback, since both regularly migrate here from Antarctica! 

Prepare for Mouthwatering Meals

Even the food on this liveaboard sail boat cruise is fun!

They’ll be plenty of delicious fuel for all that swimming, snorkelling, scuba diving and hiking with breakfast, lunch, dinner and snacks all included.

You’ll awake to cereals and fresh fruit platters in a half continental, half tropical feast! 

There will be snacks throughout the day in the form of Aussie hotdogs, bursting with cheese and fried onion, in between mouthwatering cold meat platters and salads for lunch.

And at night time, before you sit back with a beverage and either stargaze or join in the party, you’ll find dinner a tantalising affair of fresh fish with lemon and herbs on your first night.

And on night two, get ready for the most delicious, homemade bowl of spaghetti bolognaise, accompanied by crisp salad and crusty garlic bread! 

Never Ending Party

Listen up, beautiful party people! We don’t want to give away too much of the surprise, but on the last night of your Whitsundays sailing tour, there will be an epic celebration to say goodbye to your holiday cruise, and hello to a lifetime of memories!

You and your new lifelong friends will have the opportunity to dress up, participate in all sorts of shenanigans and high jinks on the high seas!

There will be a show and performance, predominately starring you.

Not only will this be the grand finale, but you might be the lucky winner whom everyone will raise as glass to; as the King and Queen of the Clipper Ship!
