When you fall in love with sailing, you’ll fall hard… for the freedom and escape from daily life, the silent beauty of gliding through the water with no engine running and the simplicity found with being at the whim of mother nature’s course.

Sailing around the Whitsundays, you will be in one of the safest and most protected cruising grounds in the world. Along with offering calm waters and protected bays, most anchorages are only a few hours apart with many options to stop in between, including national park islands and resorts.
