Our Whitsundays 1 Day Tour Sailing promises a magical experience that combines adventure, relaxation, and the awe-inspiring natural wonders of this iconic destination.

Explore Whitehaven Beach and Hill Inlet Lookout

Feel the breeze as we glide across Whitsunday Passage through Hook Passage to the stunning Whitsunday Island.

Embark on a short walk to the Hill Inlet lookout, where you’ll capture the spectacular views of swirling white sands and turquoise waters—a sight that will leave you in awe.

Dive into the underwater wonderland

Spend time lounging on the unique silicate sands that never get hot. Dip into the crystal-clear waters, soak up the sun, and let the beauty of this paradise wash over you. On our return journey, dive into the fringing coral reefs teeming with vibrant marine life. Snorkel among colourful corals, playful fish, and, if you’re lucky, spot graceful turtles and dolphins. In July and August, you might even catch a glimpse of majestic whales as they come to calf in the warm winter waters.

Relax and Indulge Onboard

Whether you’re an experienced sailor or a curious novice, you can help out with the sails and learn the ropes. Or simply chill on deck, enjoying the serene sea breeze and stunning views. Indulge in a delightful picnic lunch onboard, accompanied by morning tea and afternoon fruit. Savor the flavors as you relax and soak in the beauty around you. A fully licensed bar is available for those who wish to enjoy a refreshing drink.
