Whitsunday Islands

Whitsunday Islands Yacht Charter

One of the most beautiful archipelagos in Australia, the Whitsunday Islands are best explored via water. Consisting of 74 islands between the northeast coast of Queensland and the Great Barrier Reef, the majority of these stunning islands are uninhabited, making for the perfect tropical island escape. Natural landscapes here vary from luscious, rich rainforests to winding hiking trails to pristine sandy white beaches with sparkling lagoons. Offering the ultimate exotic seclusion, a Whitsunday Island yacht charter will ensure you and your guests are able to relax and unwind under the sun in full peace and tranquillity. As only four of the islands within the chain are populated, you will have all the privacy and natural calm you are looking for while basking in all the region’s natural glory. The namesake island of the archipelago, Whitsunday Island, is home to one of the most stunning beaches in the world, Whitehaven beach. Only accessible via boat or helicopter, the sand here is 98 percent silica, which makes it so white, it seems almost unreal. Anchor nearby and spend the day soaking up the sun on this 7km stretch of paradise beach. One of the cleanest beaches in the area, enjoy swimming in the warm, turquoise waters before drinking a cocktail or two on the deck of your charter yacht.

Hook Island:

The perfect place to enjoy some scuba diving and snorkelling, head to Hook Island. Offering sheltered anchorage, its calm and tranquil waters are ideal for all types of water sports. Choose between Manta Ray Bay or Butterfly Bay; both offer outstanding swimming, snorkelling and scuba diving spots. Then head to Nara Inlet and go inland to explore ancient Aboriginal caves adorned with paintings.

Hamilton Island:

One of the four populated islands within the Whitsunday archipelago, Hamilton Island is home to a luxury resort, spa, several world-class restaurants and an 18-hole championship golf course. The perfect stop during your charter to indulge in some premium relaxation, enjoy a pampering session at the spa, or a round of golf or two. The resort also offers a range of water activities to enjoy, from kayaking, swimming or snorkelling.

Border Island

Offering some of the best snorkelling in the area, head to Cateran Bay by Border Island. A ‘Green Zone,’ protected from fishing and anchorages, it is teeming with marine life. Anchor outside of the reef-protected area and take the tender out to enjoy snorkelling through the vibrant coral reef. Alternatively, head ashore and hike across Border Island. Its highest peak offers unrivalled views of the area.
