Sail the Whitsunday Islands

Imagine waking up in a secluded bay, framed by the beaches and trees of an uninhabited island. You can don your wetsuit and fins, grab a snorkel and goggles and hop in the water for a quick snorkel before breakfast. Get in Contact with us NOW to create a wonderful journey for you including this experience!

The Whitsundays share the same latitude as the Fiji Islands and offer tropical weather virtually all year round

Sailing through the famous 74 islands of the Whitsundays gives you a new perspective on a spectacular area. Visit secluded bays and inlets to experience the beauty of nature with hardly another soul in sight. Enjoy stunning sunrises and sunsets over uninhabited islands, and visit spectacular locations and famous landmarks amongst the islands of the Whitsundays.

The tropical islands are fringed with coral reefs and white beaches, and feature numerous secure anchorages. The outer Great Barrier Reef provides protection from ocean swells providing calm sailing.

Options to either skipper yourself or crewed yachts provide those with no sailing experience an opportunity to enjoy the pleasures of sailing in the Whitsundays while someone else does the work for you. Take part in any of these adventures from hoisting the sails to feeling what it's like to be at the helm of one of these graceful sailing classics, or if you prefer, you can lie back and relax and let the crew do all the hard work for you.

You can visit dozens of superb anchorages where you can snorkel or dive, swim, stop off on the beach for a rest, go for a bushwalk, visit Aboriginal caves and check out the spectacular lookout at Hill Inlet, overlooking world famous Whitehaven Beach.

Spend a night or two in the marina at Hamilton Island, and make use of the restaurants, pools and day spas.

We’ll help plot you a course to a luxury escape.

Experience NZ Travel has great customer service! They are much easier to deal with and will actually call and talk to you unlike several bigger travel agencies contacted before choosing who to go with. Their sister company Experience Australia is just as great, and they easily work with each other to plan both parts of your trip at the same time if you are going to both countries. Very pleased with the service and customizability I had with both agencies. I will definitely use them again in the future!... READ MORE
