The Beautiful Whitsundays is made up of 74 island wonders. The Gateway to the “Whitsundays” is Airlie Beach approximately 750 kilometres south of Cairns on the Tropical Coast of North Queensland.
Our Whitsundays 4 Day Tall Ship Sailing Adventure Tour will show you the best of the Whitsundays.
The 3 night Tall Ship sailing of the Whitsunday Islands aboard the 2 masted square rigged Tall Ship ‘Solway Lass’. Built in 1902 and with an overall length of 127 feet which makes it the largest Tall Ship sailing the Whitsunday Islands.
The large decks provide guests with plenty of room to move about and for those who would like a “Hands on” sailing trip, guests are invited to join in hoisting the sails and having a turn sailing.
Guests who prefer to just find their own deck space to sunbath, relax and take in the magnificent views of the Whitsunday Islands, as you sail by Whitehaven Beach, Hayman Island, Hook Island, Hill Inlet and Nara Inlet…one thing’s for sure, people sailing on other vessels in the Whitsundays will be taking photos of ‘Solway Lass’ as she sails by with square sails, jibs and mainsails set.
During your tour, snorkel the fringing Coral Reefs which extend right from the islands, swim, bush-walk to scenic lookouts, visit the magnificent Whitehaven beach.
While at anchor, try the Tarzan swing which is a very unique way to enter the water, relax out in the bow or enjoy an icy cold beer, sunset cocktails or wine from the fully licensed bar.
