Our Charter Base

Coral Sea Marina Airlie Beach

Whitsunday Escape’s Charter Base is in Airlie Beach

Whitsunday Escape is located at Coral Sea Marina at the NORTH end. From the roundabout, walk along the pedestrian zone past the kiosk and our office is directly above the dive shop.

It is just a short 10 minute stroll along the beautiful boardwalk to the town centre of Airlie Beach.

Airlie Beach is convenient and offers a full range of services:

  • Accommodation
  • Shopping Centres
  • Dining & Nightlife
  • Free Activities

We recommend that you arrive the day before your charter commences and stay overnight on your boat at Coral Sea Marina. This will give you time to unwind from your travels and explore the area, do your shopping, load the boat, and familiarize yourself with your boat before your briefing.

Coral Sea Marina Resort

With the recent acquisition of the Coral Sea Resort, Abell Point Marina has merged and re-branded to create the exciting new hub now known as the Coral Sea Marina Resort.

The merger marks the beginning of a new era for the marina and with the addition of a 77 room hotel, the Coral Sea Marina Resort will become a premier Australian tourism destination.

Coral Sea Marina Resort was awarded the first 5 Gold Anchor Global Accreditation in the world in 2016, providing benchmark standards for the international marina industry in terms of customer service, innovation and first-class marina facilities. In 2019, Coral Sea Marina Resort was awarded Marina of the Year 2019/2020, as well as Major Tourism Attraction at the Queensland Tourism Awards and Superyacht Business Service Provider of the Year in 2018 and 2017 respectively. All three accolades are testament to the quality experience you can expect when visiting Coral Sea Marina Resort.
