Sailing the Whitsundays - Maxi Sailing

  • 1Day(s)
  • Trip Code: STGZC2SF

The best way to explore these 74 stunning islands is on board one of the many sailing boats that depart from Airlie Beach. There are a number of different types of boat to choose from depending on whether you are looking for a more intimate experience, an adventure on the high seas or a party boat. Max Sailing is great fun and high on the adventure scale! Maxi's are large yachts over 22 metres in length and their sheer size and power makes for a memorable sailing experience. With large groups of between 22-28 young people between the ages of 18 and 35 years, don't be surprised if there's a bit of a party in the evening!

Day 1 Whitsunday Islands

With everyone at the mercy of nature's temperamental behaviour (whether it's tide, winds, or just drizzle on what was meant to be a sunny day), make sure you tell the crew if you have a particular place you want to visit so they can do their best to fit everything in. Be ready to depart at 8.30am from the marine and float on over to the Whitsunday Passage, past Hook Island and world famous Whitehaven beach. Enjoy a few hours doing what you do in paradise - sunbathe, swim, walk and just relax on the sandy beach. In the afternoon, sail to Border Island for an overnight stop.

Day 2 Whitsunday Islands

After an early morning sail to the northern end of Hook Island, jump into the warm waters for a spot of snorkelling around the fringing coral reefs. Refuel with a delicious lunch and then set sail for Airlie Beach, where this mini adventure ends.

Day 1-3

The durations differ as well with trips from 2 days/1 night up to 3 days/3 nights and everything in between. You will also have a choice of departure dates or you could leave your trip open dated - just be sure to call in advance when you are more sure of your plans to booka space on the boat of your choice. Ask your STA Travel Expert which option best suits your budget, requirements and itinerary. Why Maxis rule; they are the Formula 1 of yachts and faster than vessels can go when under motor so you get to see more of the Whitsundays (as long as the winds are blowing!) As the name would suggest, they're also among the largest yachts - two London buses end to end will fit on the deck. Plus Maxis are spacious downstairs with more than 2.5m headroom. The layout is open plan with dorm-style bunks or open doubles.
