Leave all your worries on the dock as you step on board the beautiful sailing yacht, White Swan. The charm and character of the boat, teamed with the relaxed pace of the trip, makes for an indulgently lazy tour. Smaller groups generally mean it is quieter, with a more leisurely feel on board.
White Swan has a beautiful timber interior, which has been maintained to an extremely high standard, with modern amenities such as air conditioning and a big screen TV. Guests can help set the sails, have a turn on the wheel and get some awesome sailing photos. For interested guests, a complimentary ‘Introduction to Sailing’ component can be provided.

Below is a sample itinerary:
Leave your worries in the marina as your skipper takes the helm and guides you to the Whitsundays. Sail to your first overnight anchorage for a swim and snorkel over the fringing coral reefs. Enjoy some nibbles and a drink as the sun sets over the islands before dinner is served.
Wake up to a beautiful island vista all around you. Enjoy your breakfast as you head to Tongue Bay. Be whisked over to the island for a guided bush walk through National Park land to Hill Inlet Lookout. Take in the breathtaking views of the world-famous Whitehaven Beach, then walk down to the beach itself and experience the fine, white sand for yourself. Once back on the boat, head north past Hook Island and find another anchorage in a beautiful secluded bay to have lunch. Then time for a snorkel; see the bright colourful fish, maybe meet George the Maori-Wrasse or find Nemo. Then head to your overnight anchorage in one of the many bays in the northern end of the islands. After dinner talk about your favourite parts of the day with your new friends.
Early rise for breakfast, and take one last chance to swim or snorkel over the fringing coral reefs, maybe spot a turtle if you’re lucky. Then set sails and make way back to Airlie Beach, arriving at the Abell Point Marina on the 3rd day.
