The Whitsunday's is Australia's premier sailing destination and also the step off point for some great diving destinations.

Often compared to the Greek Islands for the beauty of the area, the Whitsundays offer numerous sailing/diving adventures which will blow your mind.

Most of the photos on this page were given to us by Ron Kootswijk from the Netherlands. Thanks for sharing them Ron.

The photos are a fair representation of a typical sailing trip in the Whitsundays but do not show all destinations.

If you are going to the Whitsundays and want to book, email us for information.

If you want to dive the Great Barrier Reef in particular email us as well.  We will send you links to info on the trips which apply to what you want to do.

The Whitsunday's have some fantastic fringing reef locations whilst the Great Barrier Reef is some distance out to sea but worth the trip as it is pristine.

Tallships, Maxi Racing Yachts, Ketch's, Pocket Maxi's the list of cruises is endless. 

Islands with resorts, deserted Islands, fish feeding, snorkelling, scuba diving, bushwalking, again the list is endless.

Captain Cook discovered the Whitsunday's in 1770.  Some of the Islands and reefs are still the same as when he was here. 

You can discover the region for yourself on a voyage of discovery.
