Walk & Sail the Whitsundays

The Ultimate Whitsunday Escape

The Ultimate Whitsunday Escape.from $1,450.00pp

The Whitsunday Islands are located in the protected Whitsunday Islands National Park. They are home to some absolutely fantastic walking tracks, including the Ngaro Sea Trail. Being that they aren’t connected to the mainland, the only way to access the island tracks is by boat.

The Explore Whitsundays team has combined the best of a popular Whitsundays sailing cruise with the added opportunity to explore these beautiful and remote walks.

Walk the Whitsundays is longer than a usual charter in the Whitsundays, meaning you can cover a larger area and spend plenty of time getting stuck into the walking tracks to enjoy the views.

You will have an extra crew member with you acting as your knowledgeable walking guide and with limited passenger numbers, the tour is more personal and flexible.

The majority of our walkers are 40+, active and share a passion for adventure and the outdoors.

You will still get to visit all the places that make the Whitsunday Islands famous – Whitehaven Beach and Hill Inlet lookout. No Whitsundays tour is complete without seeing these unbelievable places! You will also have plenty of opportunities to snorkel on the fringing coral formations of the Great Barrier Reef that are located in a safe anchorage around the islands.

Limited availability for 2021, with only a few charters planned. This is because the tour can only be done during the winter months when weather conditions are most favourable. The tours are also dependent on the right tidal conditions for access to the walks.

Walk the Whitsundays package in the region and is exclusive to Explore Whitsundays.

Itinerary

SAMPLE ITINERARY:

Your package starts as soon as you land at the Whitsunday Coast Airport (PPP) with your complimentary Airport Transfers taking you to your accommodation (if you arrive earlier) or direct to the marina if arriving the day of departure. You are then invited to meet your fellow walkers and the team from Walk the Whitsundays. The Meet and Greet will include welcome drinks and light snacks before boarding Solway Lass for your Dinner Cruise.

Get ready to board Solway Lass for your Dinner Cruise where you will cruise out and anchor with the Airlie Townships lights as your backdrop. Enjoy dinner under the stars and maybe enjoy a drink from the onboard bar.

The next morning, start your day by waking up in your cosy cabin, before making your way up to the top deck where you will enjoy a hearty breakfast while sailing to your first island walk. Arrive at South Molle Island for a walk to Spion Kop Lookout and back. After lunch on board, start cruising again, with a stop for your first snorkel. Cruise to your overnight anchorage.

The next day starts early for breakfast and a transfer to the island for the Whitsunday Peak walk. After taking in the stunning views and making your way back down, enjoy lunch back on the boat as you cruise to Tongue Bay. Take the short bushwalk up to Hill inlet lookout and time to explore the north end of Whitehaven Beach. Cruise to South Whitehaven Beach for overnight anchorage.

The next day, enjoy breakfast on board and your morning coffee before being transferred to the beach. Walk to Chance Bay and take time for beach activities. Cruise to Border Island for a short walk and then the first snorkel opportunity. Cruise to Saba Bay for another snorkel. Travel to your overnight anchorage.

On the last day, we make one last early rise for breakfast and the Whitsunday Cairn walk. After taking in the amazing views, climb back down for lunch on board. Finally set the sails one last time and head back to Coral Sea Marina, Airlie Beach for 3 pm.
