Whitsunday sailing adventure
The Whitsunday Islands are one of the most amazing places in the world to sail and stay. Home to 74 islands and part of the Great Barrier Reef, not only is it beautiful but it’s teeming full of life and has so many places to explore and discover.
Your options are limitless when sailing the Whitsunday Islands; there are so many boats to pick from, islands to visit, places to stay and things to see. Although Airlie Beach is the most popular launch point, you can leave from several other locations such as Daydream Island, Hamilton Island or Hayman Island. There are day trips available as well as many overnight trips that spend the night at sea or at a resort on land.
Different tours host different types of adventures that change depending on number of passengers, type of accommodation, destinations and type of vessel. There are trips for backpackers, honeymooners, solo-travellers and families; there are small boats, big boats, yachts, catamarans and schooners; there are diving tours, beach tours and adrenaline filled tours. Most sailing tours will visit Whitehaven Beach, a Whitsunday bucket list item, and the accompanying Hill Inlet Lookout. Tours usually have the option to snorkel and scuba dive, and depending on your destinations, you will see the beautiful marine life that lives in the Whitsunday Islands and Great Barrier Reef, ranging from tropical fish, soft and hard corals, sea turtles, stingrays and reef sharks. There are tours that visit the Outer Great Barrier Reef and tours that do more sailing, and others that do less.
One thing is common is all tours; they are unforgettable and the experience of a lifetime. There is a tour for anyone and everyone who wants to experience the Whitsundays.
