Choose your Experience


Experience the adventure of sailing around a World Heritage listed region. Lush tropical islands, turquoise waters and pristine beaches will be your view, the sound of water racing past will be all you can hear and scrumptious meals being prepared will be all you can smell. This is all a part of the adventure of sailing. Join in and help the crew or sit back relax and let them take you to destinations that will delight your senses.


Whitsundays Sailing Adventures accommodates the demand for scuba diving with our live aboard sailing vessel Kiana. Sheltered coral reefs, challenging swim throughs, massive coral structures and overhangs with amazing fish tropical life, turtles, mantarays and gropers.


The Whitsunday Islands are a snorkelling paradise with coral gardens, warm crystal blue waters that are clear enough to see every subtle colour on coral or a fish's tail.

Sea Kayaking

The Whitsundays would have to be one of the world’s most ideal paddling playgrounds. Experience a unique guided kayak adventure with a ECO friendly exploration of the islands as you glide quietly into hidden inlets or secluded beaches.


The Whitsundays consists of 74 islands - only eight of which are inhabited. They are surrounded by one of the world’s seven natural wonders, the Great Barrier Reef. This magic region will have you spellbound - pristine beaches, lush rain forests and dazzling waterways, in fact there are so many reasons why the Whitsundays is known as one of the greatest aquatic playgrounds on earth.

Cruising for Couples

Your sailing adventure in the Whitsunday Islands of the Great Barrier Reef will probably be a once in a lifetime experience, so go on and spoil yourself with a private double cabin on one of our large, comfortable, well appointed yachts.

Dreaming of an Exotic Vacation? Try Sailing Whitsundays or Diving the Whitsundays!

Is there anything that a day in the great blue outdoors cannot cure?  How many summer mornings have you wished you could be out sailing Whitsundays instead of doing absolutely anything else? The Whitsunday Islands are the ideal location to do just that! 

These beautiful islands offer the most scenic spots to create the perfect vacation for you and your loved ones. Let your hair down, bask in the sun and breathe in the fresh sea air as you enjoy the variety of experiences we have in stall for you.

We all need an escape from routine every now and then so give yourself a much needed therapy session (nature style) amongst these gorgeous Whitsunday islands. We have daily departures, so you can jump on board a scheduled tour or ask our staff about a private charter.

The Whitsundays is a group of islands a little off the coast of Queensland and is approximately nine hundred kilometres from Brisbane. The Whitsunday islands are believed to have been named after the Whitsunday passage that was discovered by Captain Cook. These islands are not only unchanged from humans for the most part but are also surrounded by one of the seven natural wonders of the world – The Great Barrier Reef.

We are lucky enough to have two kinds of reef around The Whitsundays. We have “fringing reef” which is coral reef that grows in the shallow waters surrounding the Islands. We also have what is called the Outer Reef which is several hours away from the mainland and furthest Islands.

Whitsundays Sailing Adventures operates out of Airlie Beach which is also known as “The Gateway to the Islands”.

It is a popular destination among tourists who travel to see the wonders of The Great Barrier Reef and the North Queensland coast.

Sailing Whitsunday will be the adventure of a lifetime and provide memories that will last forever.
