The idea of lying on a luxury yacht in the sunshine, surrounded by rich blue tropical ocean and remote islands may seem unobtainable to most of us. However, if this is your type of happy place, then you’ll be pleased to know that it is actually easier and more affordable than you think. Make this fantasy a reality by skippering your own yacht on a ‘bareboat charter’ in Queensland’s sublime Whitsundays, one of the world’s most prestigious and beautiful sailing destinations.
On a bareboat charter, the tropical waters of the Whitsunday Islands can be yours to enjoy uninterrupted and on your own terms. Bareboat charter comes without a skipper or crew, so you can set your own course and learn some new sailing skills whilst soaking up the serene beauty of the Whitsunday Islands. There are lots of companies in the Whitsundays who specialise in bareboat charter hire and you don’t need to have sailing experience to get out there and enjoy a memorable sailing holiday with friends and family at your own pace.
Hire a yacht or a motor boat if you’re not up for the challenge of sailing. Training and tuition is provided before you leave, as well as all the information you need about the area and suggested itineraries for your holiday. The Whitsundays is a very safe sailing destination as it is sheltered from the ocean by the Great Barrier Reef and islands which provide calm, natural anchorages.
Bareboating is a perfect family holiday experience, and the whole family will enjoy the pure white sand beaches, swimming and snorkeling in the crystal waters, and the freedom and adventure of sailing.
Most charter boats are available for a minimum of five nights, and seven nights is recommended to unwind and explore all that the Whitsundays has to offer. Bareboat sailing gives you the freedom to determine how much or how little you want to do on your holiday. Spend the entire time at sea, or moor up to one of the Whitsundays many island resorts for a little land based pampering. However you decide to spend your bareboat Whitsundays holiday, it will be a truly unforgettable experience and a holiday with a difference.
