What a beautiful Sailing Boat. The crew were very attentive and extremely pleasant to us. This was such a pleasant evening and well worth the price. There were four of us doing this cruise and I can speak for all of us, who absolutely loved this and would highly recommend.

We had champagne and a tray of nibbles, with cheese, olives and dips , bread and crackers. The sunset and islands were beautiful, and coming back to port to enjoy the twinkle of the... More

Myself and two friends joined the sunset cruise and it was absolutely amazing. Great food, great music, great drinks, great company and an absolutely beautiful sunset. We were well looked after by Lindsay and Grant and thoroughly enjoyed our time aboard the providence. Would highly recommend

I cannot recommend this experience enough. Lindsay and Grant and crew are fantastic hosts. The scenery is jaw-droppingly gorgeous, and the kids had a blast playing pirate while the grown ups chilled out. What's more is that a day sale is very doable from Townsville, where we drove down from. We left on Saturday afternoon, spent the night there, and... More

Thanks Victoria. Glad you enjoyed the day out and also glad the kids loved it. You are right about being able to do it from Townsville - we hope our many loyal guests will still come down to visit us in the Whitsundays. We've been seeing whales on every day trip. Hope to see you again. More

The sailing experience was great, with friendly crew and a beautifully restored sailing vessel. We enjoyed lovely weather, an enjoyable cruise and the food and champagne were great. The yacht offers plenty of space and a great atmosphere and hearing about her history was a nice touch. I wish we had taken the day sail, as I think we would... More

Such a great experience and great way to end our stay at Airlie Beach. We booked in for the sunset cruise and I couldn't recommend a more better company to go with. The staff were great and friendly. They take you out a bit further and the time you are out is sufficient. Perfect for couples.

It was an unforgettable day with a small group of passengers and two competent skippers. They brought us safely and smiling over a rough sea in the morning to the gorgeous place where we snorkeled with turtles and had a picknick at the beach, before we relaxed in the sun while returning to Arlie Beach. Thank you for everything, mates!

We had a sensational day out on the water and snorkelling in it with the friendly providence crew. We lucked in with the weather being calm and I suspect you wouldn't be as happy if the wind was up unless you really love your sailing in a yacht built for the 1988 Australian bicentennial tall ships Amanda. That being the... More

It's a great way to end a day, watching a Whitsundays sunset over an ice cold drink on a tall ship. They played a relaxing selection of music on board while we enjoyed a selection of cheese & dips over a 2 hour journey. Spectacular!
