The Whitsunday Islands are an excellent place to bring your children to learn about a diverse range of educational (and fun!) topics. We welcome school groups year round to experience the magic and majesty that is the Whitsundays.
Sail aboard our maxi former racing yachts and learn how the wind and tides affect boats. Help hoist the sails and learn how to read the wind. From tidal charts to hands-on learning, our experienced crew will be happy to share their knowledge of the local area and sailing.
Learn about geology and how it has shaped, and continues to shape, iconic Whitehaven Beach. Take your school group on a walk up Hill Inlet to view the shifting play of sand and sea – and you might even spot some local guannas on the way.
Snorkelling provides ample opportunity to learn about the diverse ocean life that calls the Whitsundays home. You are sure to spot a wide variety of fish – and if you’re lucky a turtle or two. During the June-September months the humpback whales travel through the region.
The atmosphere of being out on a boat and learning, mixed with the fun of swimming and snorkelling, means that students and parents alike enjoy the process of learning.
