Solway Lass is an enduring image of adventure, romance and exploration. For those with a spirit of adventure, there is no greater thrill than living aboard on a majestic tall ship. In a world-first experience you can experience the tall ship Solway Lass and explore the region’s hidden coves and deserted beaches as Solway Lass transforms into the Whitsundays Floating Hotel and becomes your home away from home.
