2-Day Whitsundays Sailing Adventure: Summertime
From US$285.48
Rather than take a too-quick helicopter or boat tour of the Whitsunday Islands, take your time exploring them with this 2-day sailing trip. Sail between islands, beaches, coves, and reefs on a ketch sailboat. Two days to explore the islands leaves enough time for kayaking, snorkeling, short hikes, and group meals cooked on board.
What to Expect
Sample Itinerary Only
Trips Depend on Tide and Weather Conditions. For two days and one night you'll get to explore the glorious Whitsundays and explore the best parts of the islands. With the opportunity to snorkel, kayak, sail and bushwalk, you'll explore the spectacular marine park from above and below the water, taking home memories to last a lifetime. Depart Airlie Beach and sail across to the Whitsunday Islands, lunch is usally served before heading over to visit the spectacular Whitehaven Beach and Hill Inlet Lookout. Enjoy some time to swim or walk on the white silica sands. Help pull up the sails to enjoy a sunset sail to your anchorage for the evening. Dinner is served and everyone can sit back, relax and enjoy a cold beverage.
Summertime offers 2-person inflatable kayaks that give you a chance to explore the marine park in a whole new way. Paddle your way around the calm coves of crystal clear bays and see the coral and fish from above, enjoying the luxury of your comfortable kayak as a group. Or enjoy snorkeling in a beautiful location and see a range of different fish species and corals. Followed by a buffet lunch before sailing back across the Whitsunday Passage to Airlie Beach.
