In the heart of Queensland’s Great Barrier Reef, lie the Whitsundays – 74 Islands floating like jewels in the tropical warm waters of the Coral Sea.

Sail, snorkel, dive, ski or swim in the calm blue seas or take off on a scenic flight over the reef. The weather in the Whitsunday Islands is sub tropical making it perfect for beach side holidays. The Whitsunday Islands lie on the same tropical latitude as Honolulu in the northern hemisphere and Mauritius in the south. They have a year round warm tropical climate with an average temperature of 81°F .

While exploring the Whitsunday Islands, join one of our specialist guides and set sail on a snorkel or scuba adventure to explore the Great Barrier Reef, one of the seven wonders of the natural world.  Experiencing paradise is what it’s all about.  You’ll check it off of your “bucket list” and return from your adventure with memories to cherish for a lifetime.

You might enjoy cruising this glorious area on your privately chartered crewed yacht, aboard a lovingly restored traditional 23 meter square-rigger sailing ship, aboard a windjammer that was designed along classic lines of the trading schooners of yesteryear or aboard a mini cruise ship that combines the amenities of a luxury yacht with the versatility of an expedition cruise.
