Six Mother’s Day Ideas when Bareboating

Should your Mum be lucky enough to be chartering with us this Mothers Day, treat her to the royal treatment she deserves (or keep this list handy for when you’re next on charter to let her know she’s loved year round!). There are many ways to honour all the wonderful things Mum’s do for us, but here are a few ideas to make sure her day is a special one…

Cruising

1. TAKE MUM ON HER OWN PRIVATE SUNSET CRUISE

Pretend Mum is your VIP guest on board for the day! Mum can lounge on deck sipping champagne while you sail her around the beautiful islands & let her take in the stunning Whitsunday sunset, without her having to do a thing.

2. PACK A PICNIC & DROP HER AT HER OWN SECLUDED BEACH FOR THE AFTERNOON

Order a delicious picnic hamper from local caterers, Peach & Pear, find one of the many untouched beaches and drop Mum there to have a moment of peace to herself with champagne & cheese on the beach.

3. TREAT HER TO A SPA DAY AT HAMILTON ISLAND

The luxury of Hamilton Island stretches to its two spas that offer a full menu of body treatment delights. Nothing says ‘relax’ like an hour-long massage followed by a poolside cocktail.

4. BREAKFAST IN BED? NAH, BREAKFAST ON DECK!

Things are a little different on a boat and that saying ‘same, same, but different’ applies here.  The front tramps of our catamarans are the perfect outside bed to serve mum a scrumptious Mother’s Day breakfast & take in the endless ocean views while enjoying it.

5. TAKE TO THE SKY FOR AN UNFORGETTABLE VIEW

Give mum a James Bond experience & book an Air Whitsunday Seaplane tour with the thrill of an at-sea pick up, directly from your boat. Mum will be whisked away by sea plane & flown over the islands & reef with different tour options to include a snorkel at the outer reef and landings on Whitehaven Beach.  A truly unique Whitsundays experience for someone some truly special & deserving!

6. BOOK A TABLE AT ABELL POINT MARINA’S HEMINGWAY’S RESTAURANT

The newest addition to the marina’s South Village, this chic restaurant oozes island luxury & the food matches with its award winning Australian fusion menu. Along with sweeping views over the marina, it will only be a short stroll (or roll) back to your boat in the North Village. And the best part? Everyone gets to enjoy this celebration feast!
