ISail Whitsundays is proud to offer a real sailing experience on a modern yacht in the Whitsunday Islands National Park. “Blizzard” is built by the world renowned Beneteau shipyard and is sleek, light and safe. Sail Whitsundays specialises in small group nature experience which are both relaxing and fun. Sail the Whitsunday Islands with a max. of 10 guests over 3 days covering 2 nights. Epic scenic sailing, Whitehaven Beach, the Hill Inlet Lookout, amazing wildlife and snorkelling.
Our friendly skipper picks you up from the meeting area in the northern precinct of Abell Point Marina, just 8 minutes walk from the center Airlie Beach. After being shown your cabin, the boat heads out to sea and you can enjoy your first sail. Sit back, relax, have a drink and get to know your fellow sailors. Snacks get served after sundown. The crew gets busy cooking dinner after you have reached your anchorage for the night. This is usually somewhere central in the Whitsunday Island group in a bay protected from waves.
Sleep in and wait for the coffee smell to wake you up for breakfast at around 7am. Once breakfast is packed away the boat will head to a good spot to snorkel. This could be Border Island or in one of the bays of Hook Island or somewhere else; this could also happen in the afternoon after visiting Whitehaven Beach and Hill Inlet Lookout. Your skipper will brief you about snorkelling, gear and marine life. A rescue tender boat will be with you throughout your entire snorkelling time. In the afternoon after lunch, you will arrive at Whitehaven Beach. Pack your beach bag and camera, the view from the Hill Inlet Lookout is always fantastic and afterwards, there is plenty of time to hang out on the super squeaky white fine sand of Whitehaven. Another boat voyage will take you to the nighttime anchorage for your second night. Enjoy the scenery of the islands and some snacks.
Meals: Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner
Sleep in or get into breakfast early in order to maximise your activity time on the last morning of the tour. Relax and sunbake aboard or enjoy a watersports activity. Snorkelling is also on the agenda. Or dig into morning tea, or catch up on taking pictures. Take a last jump of the boat before we start heading back to Airlie Beach. An exciting sailing session (depending on wind conditions) brings you back to the mainland. After a journey of around 3 hours you will step onto solid ground again where your crew will be wishing you farewell and Ahoy. Congratulations, you are a sailor now.
