Chartering a yacht in Queensland

Whitsunday Escape, your home of Queensland yacht charters

If ever were was a place for Queensland yacht charters, it would have to be the Whitsundays. The Whitsundays is famous around the world as one of the world’s best sailing playgrounds.


Why are the Whitsundays famous for sailing and boating?

The Great Barrier Reef protects the Whitsunday islands from ocean swells, meaning the sea is very gent because there are barely any waves, certainly nothing you could surf. Leave the surfboards at home!

The winds are generally very mild, with steady southeast tradewinds of 10-15 knots being the most typical.

The 74 islands of the Whitsundays provide further protection from wind and swells, and offer countless bays and anchorages to tuck into at night for a restful sleep.

The islands offer an endless number of places to explore too, with world-famous beaches like Whitehaven Beach. There is amazing snorkelling on the fringing reefs that surround all the islands as well. You can fish, snorkel, sunbathe, swim, bushwalk, relax, beachcomb, explore, or simply do nothing at all, that choice is entirely up to you.

The water is the most amazing shade of aqua blue, and the lush green islands with sand or coral beaches provide a stunning backdrop for your Queensland yacht charter holiday photos that will make everyone jealous back at home.

If you’re dreaming of a Queensland yacht charter, the Whitsundays must be your destination of choice.
