8 Tips to have the most romantic bareboating holiday
Looking for a romantic holiday experience you’ll never forget?
Book a bareboat charter holiday with Whitsunday Escape. We can help you choose the right boat, and a suitable itinerary, so you can have a wonderful getaway with the one you love.
Cruising the Whitsunday Islands on your own private boat, on your own itinerary (or no itinerary!) would have to be one of the most romantic holidays, where you can really reconnect and relax with someone special.
1. Book a luxury yacht for two
Whitsunday Escape have several beautiful smaller boats that are perfectly suited to couples. While many boats CAN take up to six people, you’ll find two is quite common, and you can handle the boat easily on your own, after your pre-charter briefing with us of course.
2. A seafood platter on the water, and a bottle of your favourite champagne
Order your seafood platters for delivery from our fantastic local suppliers Whitsunday Provisioning or FISHI. You can choose from numerous options and they will deliver to your boat. Coral Sea Cellars can deliver your drinks too. Check out their online shop.
3. Book a romantic seaplane or helicopter flight for two
For the ultimate Whitsundays experience, take to the skies. A scenic flight over the islands, Whitehaven Beach, and the magical natural formation of Heart Reef is a sight to treasure for the rest of your life. Many romantics choose to propose on the beach or in the air during a scenic flight, it’s certainly a story you and your partner will be retelling for the rest of your life.
4. Talk to your briefer about the most romantic Whitsunday destinations to visit
With such a huge area to explore by bareboat, there are lots of anchorages and beaches that you can literally have all to yourself.
5. Book a spa treatment for two at an island resort
Hamilton Island has a wonderful day spa, and following the reopening of both Daydream Island and Hayman Island, there are even more options to choose from.
Airlie Beach has dozens of spas, and you could start off the holiday with a relaxing treatment before you even get on board your boat, if you prefer.
6. Take each day as it comes
There’s no pressure to be anywhere or do anything, and you can literally wake up and make a decision what to do every day as the mood takes you.
7. Organise provisioning
When you book a pre-packaged meal plan from Whitsunday Provisioning, Airlie Providores or Slice of Nature Food, everything is done for you, making it nice and relaxing. Provisioning packages will be delivered so you don’t have to go to the supermarket or worry about what meals to make.
8. Relish the quality time
Away from digital distractions, phones, TV, work, and other people. You can focus on conversation, books, old-fashioned board games or card games, and lazy midday naps, followed by cheese platters and drinks.
