Description

Meet your skipper under the white umbrellas at the roundabout at Abell Point Marina North and prepare to board a magnificent tallship, where you have the opportunity to help set the sails, or just relax on deck. Sip a cup of morning tea and local pastries as you head across Pioneer Bay.

Set sail through Hook Passage to Whitsunday Island, the largest in a cluster of islands that shares the same name, and sailing past the white-sand beaches on the islands among thick, green vegetation. A serene sailing adventure makes your journey just as other-worldly as your destination.

Feel the wind in your hair and breathe in the crisp, calming smell of the ocean as we moor in Tongue Bay, and spot the turtles who often swim there.. Disembark into our tender and take a short walk up to the Hill Inlet lookout, where you can have a birdseye view of one of the most iconic beaches in the world: Whitehaven Beach. Turquoise water and golden sand intermingle to form a spiral-like pattern unlike anything you've seen before.

Spend some time on Whitehaven Beach, frolicking in the gentle waves and taking in sights of spectacular tropical scenery. Get back on the boat and savour a delicious picnic lunch as you sail to your next destination, Dumbbell Island.

Stop off at one of the Whitsunday's best snorkelling spots on beautiful fringing reefs and bustling marine life. This part of the world is known for its incredible snorkelling spots and this is a great opportunity to explore the beauty of the underwater world.

Set sail back to Abell Point Marina and munch on delightful fruit platter while soaking up more views of and catching the breeze. Reflect on your experience as you drift tranquilly back into the marina.

My first time on a sail. Love every single moment. Whithaven beach was super gorgeous. Skipper was nice to slow down and stop for us to see the humpback whale and her calf.

This trip gave me the sailing bug. From the start to finish we were treated like royalty by our skipper and first mate. The locations and route we took were first class. Food was excellent.
