Why do we love this

We love that this tour gives you the chance to explore the Whitsundays in style. Morning and afternoon tea, buffet lunch and drinks (including wine!) included? That's pretty cool. 


Explore the highlights of the breathtaking Whitsunday Islands on this full-day sailing adventure from Airlie Beach to Whitehaven Beach. Enjoy a thrilling ride aboard one of the world’s fastest commercial sailing catamarans, the Camira. Sit back and enjoy the journey as you cut through the water, ride the waves and let the wind whip through the sails! 

On this action-packed sailing trip, you truly get the best of both worlds. Style and adventure! Explore Australia’s stunning Whitsunday Islands whilst sipping on complimentary beer and wine and tucking into a delicious buffet lunch.


Start your day of discovery bright and early, with departure from the Port of Airlie at 8am. After a scenic cruise by the islands to pick up any extra passengers, unfurl the sails and let the wind take control. Speed across the crashing waves and enjoying a truly exhilarating ride through the open ocean. The Camira’s sleek lines, spacious deck and world-class engineering make her the perfect vessel for exploring the Whitsundays and Queensland’s stunning coastline.  

Enjoy a thrill-seeking ride as you cruise through the islands and onto the most famous of them all: Whitsunday Island. Here, marvel at the breathtaking pure-white sands. This really is one of the world’s most beautiful beaches. Enjoy a tasty morning and afternoon tea of chocolate mud cake, tropical fruit platters, cheese, dips and crackers and a selection of hot or cold refreshments. After 11 am, enjoy a beer or wine aboard!

You'll also have a chance to explore the beaches and bays, take a cooling dip in the turquoise blue ocean, snorkel through a myriad of colourful fish and soak up the rays of the sun on the island. Keep your eyes out for wildlife too, sightings of gorgeous loggerhead turtles and stingrays are a daily event.

After working up an appetite, tuck into a cooked-to-order BBQ lunch featuring locally sourced ingredients. Food includes steaks, sausages, chicken and fresh local reef fish and a large array of tropical salads, tortillas and assorted fresh baked rolls. 

Once you've finished feasting, take a walk and sink your toes into the spectacular white sand along 7km Whitehaven Beach. Relax for a couple of hours before you embark on the adventurous journey back to the mainland!

This day of fun even includes an all-you-can-eat barbeque on the beach, unlimited drinks and morning and afternoon tea.
