Few locations are as ideal for sailing as the Whitsundays, the tropical gateway to the Great Barrier Reef. Deserted inlets and welcoming harbours are never far away in this island paradise, where calm waters make for smooth sailing on the inner reef.
The choice of Whitsundays sailing vessels is huge, with multi-sailed schooners and tall ships, racing maxi yachts and catamarans. Sailing is easy in the Whitsundays, so learn the ropes if you are a novice or gain your skippering qualifications in the world’s best sailing waters. Join a day cruise, sip champagne on a romantic sunset sail, hoist the mainsail on a self-skippered bareboat, or organise a fully crewed private charter for a leisurely week-long meander from island to island.
Sunsail Yacht Charters
Embark on an exciting day (or longer!) of both adventure and relaxation by sailing through the Whitsunday Islands on a Sunsail Yacht Charter. Choose either one of our monohulls or catamarans ranging in size from 32 ft to 50 ft, set your own itinerary (or allow one of our highly experienced skippers to take you to the best areas) and explore the delights of locations such as Whitehaven Beach at your own pace.
Steady Sailing Ships
Catamarans are easy to sail, stable vessels with plenty of deck space for soaking up the Queensland sunshine. Coast to Whitehaven Beach to test out that famous white sand, drop anchor in a sandy inlet on one of the Whitsundays’ 74 islands or snorkel with angelfish on a coral reef.
Whitsundays catamaran hire gives you the freedom to set your own course or sit back and relax with a fully crewed or skippered charter. Bring your own provisions or organise a fully stocked charter for carefree sailing in the Whitsundays.
