What to Expect

Jump on board for a day to remember! This exciting Whitsundays' sailing tour visits the iconic Whitehaven Beach on Providence V, a 62 ft gaff-rigged schooner classic tall ship. She is one of the only boats of her kind that regularly sails to Whitehaven as well as offering sunset cruises. Learn how to hoist a sail or simply chill on deck in style. 


This is a barefoot experience, so kick off your shoes and leave them with the crew. They will return them for the Hill Inlet walk, but then it's shoes-off again until your disembark at the end of the day. 


The journey departs from Airlie Beach, with a tasty morning tea served as you traverse between the islands of this picturesque part of the world. 


Making a path to Whitehaven Beach, the adventure includes the chance to walk to the Hill Inlet lookout, for breathtaking vistas across this famous waterway, with its maelstrom of turquoise and whites that look more like a painting than real life. 


Then, enjoy some time on Whitehaven Beach, with your toes sunk deep in the white silica sands. Cool off with a refreshing swim in the clear waters, and tick off another item from your travel bucket list.


Jump back on board for lunch as the crew takes you out to a fringing reef for snorkelling around some beautiful coral teeming with fish. You'll even have the chance to see turtles and spot dolphins, plus, in July and August, you might be lucky enough to see some whales as they migrate through to calve in the warm tropical waters.


At the end of the day, on the way home, you can choose to help out with the sails and belay a cleat or two or simply chill on deck. There's a licenced onboard bar, so you can enjoy an ice-cold beer or glass of wine to finish off a perfect day in paradise.
