A bareboating holiday in the Whitsunday Islands is bucket list worthy! No formal sailing qualifications are required, not even a boat license.
Our crew picked up a 44-foot catamaran from Go Bareboating! at Abell Point Marina in Airlie Beach.
Visitors can spend a week exploring Whitsunday Island alone. It’s the largest in the group.
Cid Harbour to Hamilton Island. Overnight at Hamilton Island Marina. Enjoy sunset cocktails at One Tree Hill with amazing 360-degree views.
Hamilton Island to Whitehaven. Anchor at Tongue Bay. Jump in the tender and explore dazzling Whitehaven Beach. Take a walk up to Hill Inlet to the most photographed spot in Qld.
Whitehaven to Hook Island. Anchor overnight at Butterfly Bay, one of the best snorkelling spots. It’s a popular spot offering coral outcrops with plenty of pretty fish.
Butterfly Bay to Nara Inlet. Explore the little beaches that dot the banks of the inlet. Discover the Ngaro Cultural Site featuring ancient coastal cave paintings.
