Whitsunday sailing options to package with Fraser

So you’re looking to tick Fraser Island off your bucket list? Why not combine your Fraser Island tour with a Whitsundays sailing adventure? It is a great way to save money and the best bit? You can leave part or your entire package open dated as you travel freely along Australia’s stunning east coast!

 

The Whitsundays are made up of 74 stunning islands that can be reached by boat from the mainland of Airlie Beach. Airlie Beach is located around 950km north of Rainbow Beach – the gateway to Fraser Island. If travelling by Greyhound many backpackers will take an overnight bus between the two locations, or stop by the town of 1770 or Emu Park for a few nights to break up the long bus ride. Here are some options for your Whitsunday sailing tour.

 

Day Tours: If you are really short on time then a day tour through the Whitsundays may be the option for you. There are a number of sailing tours on offer, ranging from fast paced adventure boats to easy sailing yachts, catamarans or schooners. Day tours include a visit to Whitehaven Beach, one or two snorkelling spots on the Great Barrier Reef and a bush walk to Hill Inlet Lookout.

 

Overnight Maxi Racing Yachts: If a fast paced adventure is your style of travel then a maxi racing yacht will be just what you are looking for! There are 2 day / 1 night, 2 day / 2 night and 3 day / 2 night options available. The yachts include onboard accommodation and you may even get a chance at sailing the boat yourself. All overnight tours include meals, snorkelling and some have an optional scuba dive. On an overnight sailing tour you will get to experience more of the islands and have more time to chill out on Whitehaven Beach. You will get to visit a number of snorkelling spots and walk away with new friends.

 

Party Boats: there are a number of 2 day / 2 night party boats that sail the Whitsundays – one of our favourites being the Atlantic Clipper – a large schooner with 3 levels, a waterslide and onboard Jacuzzi. Fun! The boat caters for 52 people and you can BYO alcohol. Although it may be a ‘party’ boat – the crew onboard tailor the vibe to the group and organise a number of games that will sure to have you form life long friendships. New Horizon is a slightly smaller and more chilled out alternative to ‘The Clipper,’ with an onboard cinema, see through kayaks and a jumping board! Both boats include meals, onboard accommodation and a visit to Hill Inlet Lookout, Whitehaven Beach, a number of reef snorkelling spots and optional scuba dives.

 

Catamarans: Nothing says luxury like a Catamaran and there are a number of boats to choose from – ranging from 1 day to 3 day trips. Like the other overnight sailing boats, the Catamarans are fun, social and include onboard accommodation, meals and a visit to all of the amazing sights on the Whitsundays!
