Our staff love boating and are passionate about the unique beauty that is the Whitsundays. We spend our holidays on boats and the passion and knowledge becomes evident with every query you ask.
The ‘Stay Aboard’ option is an economical way for you and your crew to settle in, provision your boat and enjoy the local restaurants and clubs before setting sail the next day.
We offer our briefing at Abell Point Marina as early as 8am to all our charterers.
Whitsunday Escape is unashamedly the industry leader in Skipper Yourself Bareboating and the envy of our competitors. Our growth is directly accountable because of the dedication, passion, knowledge and loyalty of the Whitsunday Escape team and owners alike.
Not only does Whitsunday Escape deliver on our promises. We can also deliver your boat to any of the Resort Islands (such as Hamilton Is, Hayman Is, Daydream etc).
Whitsunday Escape has been in operation for over 28 years. Many boat owners reinvest with new boats, which has seen the Whitsunday Escape fleet grow from 20 boats to what is now the largest fleet in the Whitsundays.
Whitsunday Escape has won numerous awards; including the Australian Tourism Award Winner, for the category of ‘Unique Accommodation’.
Whitsunday Escape has the largest cruising area for bareboats in the Whitsundays. The cruising area covers all the popular sights to see, and many beautiful places you probably haven’t heard of – yet!
Whitsunday Escape’s charter base is located at Abell Point Marina. With supermarkets, bottle shops, a dive shop, parking areas and kiosk all at the marina it makes a great location to start your holiday.
Whitsunday Escape owns and maintains 12 swing moorings outside the marina at Abell Point which are free of charge for our charterers.
From our first inquiry to the last of the administration, the Whitsunday Escape crew were absolutely fantastic. They are very customer focused, helping us with a couple of tricky invoicing and timing things with no trouble at all. Every time we called to check on something, they were helpful, friendly and very knowledgeable about all aspects of the operation. When came the time to take “Lady L III” out, she was ready for us and we enjoyed the first night in the marina to get used to her. Tim’s briefing was outstanding – perfectly targeted to our knowledge and delivered in a great relaxed and friendly style (as was the debrief when we returned). Our holiday was sensational and whenever we had a question, Whitsunday Escape was there on the radio with a helpful answer. The boat was superb – she handled like a dream, she was well equipped with everything we needed, and she offered loads of space to spread out. We have already recommended Whitsunday Escape to some of our friends, and will certainly return to them in the future. Totally recommended from every perspective.
We had a wonderful trip and had the best time ever, I can’t wait for the next holiday with Whitsunday Escape. The vessel was very spacious, comfortable, it was very easy to sail and it is very stable.
