Whitsunday Island Yacht Charters
Chartering your own private bareboat or crewed yacht from Hamilton Island, Airlie Beach, or Cairns & the Great Barrier Reef is now easier than ever! We can package your complete holiday, including airfares, a bareboat or crewed yacht charter, as well as any pre/post charter hotel accommodation that you may require.
The Whitsunday Islands were originally formed by volcanic action, but after the last glacial period about 30-50,000 years ago, the sea level rose, leaving the higher coastal peaks as islands.
Today, these islands are considered to be among the safest, most beautiful cruising grounds in the world. The 74 islands offer year round sailing in typical trade wind conditions.
The Great Barrier Reef to the east of the islands protects them from ocean swells and the close proximity of the islands to each other and to the mainland, make for safe, easy passage making.
Right in the middle of the group is Hamilton Island, with its own airport, 4 star resort hotel and yacht harbour.
Flight duration to Hamilton Island is from Sydney - 2:10 hrs, Melbourne - 2:40 hrs, Brisbane - 1:20 hrs and Cairns- 1:00 hr. You will step almost literally from your plane onto your yacht.
Then set off on your cruise among the islands. The islands, mostly unspoilt National Parks, have 10 resorts which vary from 5 star luxury to old style cabins.
The peace and isolation of the uninhabited anchorages can be contrasted with dinner and frivolity ashore.
(no sailing experience required!): spend 3 nights sailing the stunning Whitsundays onboard a magnificent 46-ft catamaran with a maximum of 8 guests, fully equipped with skipper & host. Following your 3 nights on the water you will be ready to check-in to the stylish 5 star Beach Club Resort on Hamilton Island for 3 nights of land luxuries.
