Sailing

Whether you’re a keen sailor, or just eager to feel wind in your hair as you sail into the sunset, there’s an adventure to suit in Queensland’s ultimate sailing destination – The Whitsundays. 

Bareboat

Did you know that The Whitsundays is the only place in the world where you can rent a multi-million-dollar sailing yacht without a licence? Yep, you can be your own captain and navigate the 74 islands of the Whitsundays on your very own private sailing adventure.

While bareboating is fairly straight forward and a romantic adventure your significant other can be incredible, having a larger crew will help, especially if this is your first bareboating holiday. So, assemble your crew and enjoy the fun.

Skippered boat

Be guided around the Whitsundays with your own talented skipper. Kick back, spread out and relax on the deck as you decide where to next. Do what you want, when you want.

If you’re up for some extra fun, your skipper can teach you the basics of sailing and give you a chance to get behind the wheel.

Public Tours

Ranging from budget backpacker party boats to family-friendly getaways, you can opt for a public tour instead of renting your private boat. These are perfect for the extrovert wanting to meet new friends. Plus, it’s a little easier on the hip pocket.

Sailing Events

For a week in August, the Whitsundays is adorned with sails for the Airlie Beach Race Week, a colourful week of sailing and partying. Picture long lunches and a chock-a-block full social calendar. Sailing enthusiasts, this is an event not to be missed.

You can also get involved in the Hamilton Island Race Week which has more of a foodie and fashion edge. Show me more events.
