 Kiana Sail and Dive:

Greg and Lauren Lambert Greg & Lauren Lambert have owned & operated Kiana since January 2003. Run as a family business, Greg & Lauren’s objective is to achieve as close as possible to complete satisfaction for every guest that sails and dives aboard Kiana. “We just want to give our guests one of the best experiences that they will have in Australia. We try to meet every passenger and listen to what they have to say about their experience aboard Kiana.”

 SV Whitehaven:

Dave and Jen Dave and Jen Young have undertaken to share with you their love of the Great Barrier Reefs Whitsunday Islands. Jen traded the crisp mountain air of Oregon’s Cascade Ranges over five years ago for the warmer sea breezes of the Coral Sea. While Captain Dave, with over a decades experience living and sailing the Whitsundays Islands, will ensure you will always be in the right spot at just the right time. Guaranteeing your sailing adventure will be a once in a lifetime experience. Their goal is to educate as well as entertain. Offering plenty of opportunities to learn about the islands, stars and fish. And even try your hand at setting the sails.


Brad and Bri Schulz Brad & Bri Schulz, bought Summertime in 2008 after Brad had worked in the region as a skipper for the previous three years. Brad now skippers his own boat every week and Bri takes care of the business side of things, in amongst her other duties as a young mum. Their philosophy for Summertime is fun, fun, fun, life’s short with not a moment to lose. Dive, sail and kayak a trip on Summertime is jam packed with activity followed by a soak in the hot tub with a chilled drink at the end of the day. “It’s the kind of holiday that we love to have.” A holiday cruise to remember.
