One of the finest ways to discover the Whitsunday Islands is aboard the stylish sailing catamaran Whitsunday Blue, designed to accommodate only 4 couples in private ensuite cabins.
The inherent stability of a catamaran means you can relax and unwind in comfort as your host and professional skipper guide you around the calm anchorages of the magnificent 74 islands.
This is the ultimate getaway, as you meet new friends and are taken to exclusive beaches that the larger cruise ships cannot access. Enjoy sumptuous gourmet meals prepared by your on board chef and delight in the aromas of freshly brewed local coffee. Snorkelling, fishing and kayaking are all available, or simply enjoy a good book and a quiet relaxing sail. With Whitsunday Blue's shallow draft, the vessel can back right up to the beach, each hull has transom steps for easy access in and out of the water.
At night watch the stars dance across the heavens on the comfortable foredeck or enjoy a good movie on the large outdoor home theatre in the aft cockpit. Enjoy the freedom and splendour of a Whitsunday sailing holiday on board the stylish Whitsunday Blue.
Whitsunday Blue offers private double ensuite cabins
