Departing from Airlie Beach each Saturday, we embark on our wondrous 3-day, 3-night adults-only Whitsunday Islands sailing adventure on the Great Barrier Reef.

Visit iconic Whitsundays destinations and exclusive locations

You’ll visit exclusive Whitsunday Islands beach locations unable to be reached by larger cruise ships as the shallow draft of our catamaran ensures direct beach access and easy access in and out of the water. These include:

  • Tongue Bay - a popular anchorage which offers protection from the prevailing south-easterly winds 
  • Whitehaven Beach - where the brilliant white silica sand is so pure it squeaks!
  • Hill Inlet -  the best place to view the famous swirls of Whitehaven’s turquoise, blue and green water

You’ll also get to explore the fringing reefs off Hook Island and anchor at stunning Blue Pearl Bay off Hayman Island or in the Langford Reef Area.

Your luxury home on Australia’s Great Barrier Reef

Our spacious, French-designed 41-foot Lagoon catamaran is built to promote a more stable sailing experience and offers style, comfort and privacy for guests. She is equipped with:

  • 4 private, air-conditioned cabins - 3 with ensuites and one with a shared bathroom 
  • A saloon and lounge area in the centre of the vessel
  • Spacious foredeck, ideal for sunbathing
  • A back deck with shaded area, perfect for relaxing out of the sun and alfresco dining

With just 8 guests onboard you’ll have plenty of privacy and room to move, and lots of individual attention from our amazing crew of 2 who will provide fascinating information about the history, region and wildlife of the Whitsundays and the Great Barrier Reef, prepare and serve meals and organise your activities.

Choose to dine in the spacious interior saloon whilst getting to know the other guests or enjoy a romantic alfresco gourmet dining experience under the stars on the aft-deck as you spot unique night-time marine life that are attracted by our yacht’s special underwater blue lights. 

Be as active or relaxed as you like

With activities aplenty on offer, you can choose to:

  • snorkel the Great Barrier Reef
  • wander on the beautiful, pure white silica sand of famous Whitehaven Beach
  • take a guided walk up to Hill Inlet Lookout - where you’ll get some amazing pics!
  • try out our stand-up paddleboards
  • explore the reef on our clear kayak
  • relax in air-conditioned comfort on the yacht or sunbathe on the spacious foredeck.  

We guarantee no 3-day, 3-night Whitsundays sailing tours are the same. We like to tailor our Great Barrier Reef sailing tours specifically to our guests’ desires on each departure.

Your Trip

Departing Airlie Beach at 3.00pm on Saturdays, an array of experiences limited only by your imagination are possible each day aboard our luxury adults-only shared charter sailing boat.

Over the next 3 days our couples have the opportunity for bush walks, sailing, swimming, snorkelling, sunbaking, beach hopping, and diverse wildlife spotting of native Australian animals in the Whitsunday islands.

Sail the calm and pristine waters of the Great Barrier Reef, enjoy exclusive, protected anchorages and discover world famous Whitehaven Beach with its 7 kilometres of almost pure white silica sand.

The spectacular fringing coral reefs provide world-class snorkelling and are bursting with an abundance of marine and bird life.

If you’re visiting between July and October, you’ll be amazed by the sight of Humpback Whales as they breach and play in the azure waters of the Great Barrier Reef. These gentle giants make every trip to the Whitsundays an unforgettable experience!

  • A long sleeve top and long trousers/pants for cooler evenings

Whitsundays Sailing 3-Day, 3-Night Itinerary

Jump onboard and prepare for a peaceful holiday surrounded by beauty. Head over to the islands in time for sunset over the water as you enjoy a glass of your favourite wine and meet the others whom you’ll be spending time with. Have your dinner served under the stars before tucking in for the night in your cabin.

Wake up in the morning to the stunning island scenery surrounding the boat and enjoy a leisurely breakfast on board. Sail down to tongue bay to make your way up to Hill Inlet Lookout and take in the stunning vista of the world-famous Whitehaven Beach. Spend some time exploring the beach itself before coming back on board for lunch on the go. Watching the beautiful scenery change as you sail north.

Jump into the delightful water for a swim and snorkel over the beautiful coral reefs teeming with bright colourful fish. If you’re lucky, spot a turtle or meet George the Maori-Wrasse! If there’s time, possibly go for another beach visit or snorkel before sharing an antipasto platter while you watch the sunset.

Dinner under the stars once again as you wind down for the evening. In the morning enjoy another stunning vista with breakfast on the deck. Maybe jump in for a cheeky swim before setting sail for the mainland.

For our three day and three-night trip, you will have a whole extra day to mosey on through the secluded bays and coves around the Whitsunday Islands. Take everything a little slower and come back with more knowledge of the islands than some of the locals!

Sample menu

 

All meals are made onboard with skill and diligence to make the dining experience alone a pleasing element of your trip aboard Whitsunday Blue. Using fresh locally sourced and seasonal produce to bring you a mixture of hearty home-cooked style meals and refined cuisine.

A typical menu may include continental style breakfasts including fresh fruit, croissants or pancakes. Buffet-style lunch of wraps or rolls with cold meats and deliciously fresh salads on the side.

Dinners made up of chicken or steaks on the BBQ – cooked to your liking, with roast potatoes, crisp fresh salad, and other sides. Throughout your trip, there will be plenty of other snacks such as an antipasto platter, nachos, and tea, coffee, and cakes.
