How to get around the Whitsundays

Boat charters

There are 3 different types of overnight boat trips available. The most popular are crewed overnight trips which includes a skipper and crew and join a group of passengers to share the tour with. The price includes the crew, all meals, activities on the itinerary (excluding diving), snorkelling gear and marine park fees.

Another boat tour option which includes a skipper and crew is to private charter a vessel. Rather than sharing the boat with other guests, your group can charter the entire vessel to yourselves and have a skipper and hostess to do all the work. Almost every overnight sailing vessel on our website is available for private charter.

Alternatively, the Whitsundays also has a number of different bareboat charter companies. A bareboat charter means a group of people charter the entire vessel for themselves and is a skipper-yourself trip (no skipper or crew onboard). This allows freedom to create your own itinerary on your time frame.
