Whitsundays Sailing Holidays

When planning a sailing adventure, there are many questions you should be asking yourself and we can help you answer them! Are you looking for relaxation or adventure? Is scuba diving something you definitely want to do as part of your sailing tour? Do you want to visit the Outer Great Barrier Reef and experience open water conditions or would you rather enjoy the reefs surrounding the islands that offer more protected and calm conditions? The absolute beauty of a Whitsunday Sailing holiday is that you can combine all your expectations into one exciting holiday never to be forgotten. Doing your research prior to booking and seeking assistance from the Sailing Whitsunday experts will ensure that you get on the most suitable vessel that meets all your needs. We want your entire Whitsunday Sailing holiday to be relaxing right from the start. So let us know what you are looking for and we will make sure your dream holiday comes to life.

Relaxing and comfortable boats

For a more laid back holiday, you should consider choosing a more stable sailing boat; a vessel that is not about high speed or thrilling sailing. For the perfect relaxing holiday, you might consider going on board Solway Lass or one of the luxury catamarans including Whitsunday Blue, Adventurer or On Ice. All of these vessels are designed to pamper and give you that relaxed cruising experience. 

Vessels for the adventure seekers

There is an abundance of action sailing adventures here in the Whitsundays. There are dozens of boats from different fleets with different itineraries and features. You are able to find day one night as well as two night tours, all with competitive and fluctuating prices.

On a budget or tight on time? Hop on a 2 day, 1 night thrill seeker vessel like Siska.

Willing to pay more for better value? With a few more dollars to spend, you can get on board a 2 day, 2 night vessel like British Defender.

Are you a sailing enthusiast? Your most enjoyable experience might be found on a vessel with a few less people. We would highly recommend you to consider Eureka, Solway Lass or Southern Cross - all awesome sailing boats with thrill as the aim.

Hear and see the ocean fly by as your vessel leans over into the power of the wind; cutting through the seas, you will be awed by the power of fast sailing. A true adventure sailing experience.

Vessels for adventure seekers with an added experience

With not everyone wanting to sail, there are a few options for travellers to choose from if they just want to see as much of the islands as possible and would prefer not to lean over on a sailing vessel. A few boats carry extra toys like paddle boards, deck spas and kayaks. We would highly recommend Powerplay as a great choice if you would like to experience the islands on a fast twin hulled catamaran but also have the addition of fun watertoys. 

Sail and dive boats to the Outer Great Barrier Reef

Our most popular tour for divers looking for an Outer Great Barrier Reef tour is on Kiana. Kiana venture out to dive the Great Barrier Reef and provides an island sailing experience. Scuba dive amongst the vibrant coral and abundant marine life in the Outer Reef. A true adventure experience that combines diving and sailing together. Both private cabins and shared accommodation styles are available.

Party boats for backpackers

Airlie Beach and the Whitsundays islands are well known destinations for the typical backpacker circuit. The vast majority of overseas travellers will tell you that the Whitsunday sailing holiday was the highlight of there Australia holiday. If want a young and fun party atmosphere, you must consider the vivacious Atlantic Clipper - a fun experience that combines activities together with an active nightlife aboard ship. Clipper carries around 50 passengers and offers as the perfect social scene for backpackers. If you prefer smaller groups of young fun adventurers then we would recommend Tongarra , Habibi or a maxi fun adventure on a boat such as British Defender.

The Whitsundays truly are a wonderful area for sailing, Let the aquamarine water bedazzle you with colour and our pure white beaches will create memories to last a lifetime. Our island paradise is well worth considering for your next sailing holiday.
