Bareboating or self-skippered tours are when you hire a boat and sail it yourself as skipper with no hired crew. Bareboating not only allows you to sail your own boat, but to also choose your own itinerary, cook your own food and enjoy your trip exactly the way you want. It is the best way to enjoy the freedom and luxury of exploring the Whitsundays on your very own boat, where you make your own perfect vacation.
Self-skippering the Whitsundays are a sought after experience and offers a unique and in depth way to see the islands. Not only do you choose the length, itinerary and all the small details in between, but you also get to have the amazing experience of sailing yourself around the islands. Experienced sailors and boaties are able to skipper their own boats, with their friends and guests as their crew, meaning you can ensure you have the exact people you want on your trip and choose the right boat for your group size.
Bareboating is a great way to see the Whitsundays if you have boating or sailing experience and want to take charge of your own trip.
