Unique 40th Birthday Ideas in the Whitsundays


We all have ideas of doing something special for that magic milestone – the 40th birthday! You absolutely should celebrate it; everyone is deserving of a celebration in their honour now and then! and this is especially true when reaching such an important milestone. Now, just imagine on the day of your birthday. You’re on a deserted island, sipping your favourite beverage, surrounded by people you love. Not a care in the world! In the Whitsundays this dream can be a reality, and doesn’t cost the Earth!

It’s a given that the Whitsundays are magnificent. All you have to do is google Whitehaven beach to be bombarded with drool-worthy images, that would make anyone wish they were there. And you could be.

Finding the right style for you

This celebration is all about you, so if it’s not your style it’s not going to work. If you want an intimate celebration with a few of your nearest and dearest – that’s what you should do. If you want to include everyone you’ve ever dreamed of and celebrate for a week, so you should! We have a range of different sizes and styles of vessel. They can all be moulded to fit specifically with your wishes.

Visit the Whitsundays your way

With any vessel you choose there are many parts that can be upgraded or tailored to suit you. Perhaps you’d like to alter the itinerary or the menu to make it more to your liking. For example, maybe you fancy a more extravagant menu, upgrade to receive the finest meals, or if you know you love seafood, upgrade to a seafood menu. We can also pre-arrange any drink orders with the bottle shop, and have them brought down to the boat before your departure. Another thing less for you to have to worry about!

Walk the Whitsundays

Our favourite ideas for your 40th birthday:

Whitsunday Blue – the perfect yacht for an intimate getaway.

With 4 private cabins on board, you and your closest friends can all go away together and still enjoy the privacy of a well-appointed cabin each. The large open foredeck, comfortable seating area at the back and large saloon provide plenty of entertainment space. Find your own way to use the space. The two crew on board with you will help with any queries and will leave you wanting for nothing more.

Solway Lass – The most unique vessel for a 40th to remember!

The jewel of the Whitsunday’s Horizon. Absolutely perfect for larger groups or multiple families to get away together for a completely unique holiday. Younger ones won’t have a spare second as they go from activities to activity, allowing the adults time to relax. With a large, flat deck it is even feasible to get the older generations to join the celebration on Solway Lass.

Prima – a versatile, family orientated boat for quality time together!

The perfect vessel for a few families to get together and enjoy a wonderful family holiday. You’ll still enjoy the privacy of private cabins and the luxury of four bathrooms. A large saloon dining area means you can share meal time together easily. With a separate drinks fridge specifically for you to use how you wish. The party can keep going!
