Great experience, while simple cabins,wonderful crew (the best), must do while in the area. Check-in and diving wasn't well organized, with unclear and divergent info by different people.

My three days and nights aboard the Solway Lass added up to one of the greatest experiences of my life. I can't stop dreaming and talking about it. Her history is amazing, the crew is gorgeous, the food delicious and the journey amazing. The places we visited were the best, including Blue Pearl Lagoon, the best place to see fish,... More

We had a week to spend in Airlie Beach with friends and looked at lots of options and decided on the 3d/3n packaged with a stay on Daydream island. Even though the weather wasn't awesome it didn't really detract from what was an amazing week. Our time on Solway Lass was memorable, different, fun, interesting, good number and variety of... More

Visited in December 2013 (can't believe I've never reviewed this until now) I was lucky to book this trip at the last minute as another one I booked was cancelled - man that was the best thing that happened to me!!! This was by far the highlight of my Australian Adventure - the friends I made I keep in contact... More

Like most people I'm sure, we were overwhelmed by the options for boat trips on the Whitsundays. A lot of them are hard to tell apart, but the Solway Lass really does stand out from the crowd. A little more expensive maybe and a little longer than some tours (3d/3n), but you really do get what you pay for (and... More

We spent 3 days and 3 nights on the ship through the Whitsunday's. Friendly and extremely knowledgeable staff made this an amazing trip. The food was better than you could expect from a small galley on a sailing ship and the crew's knowledge of the area and the ship really made the trip.

I chose Solway Lass as I had received so many great reviews from friends and other travellers. I was not disappointed. I loved each and every moment of this adventure! I chose the 3 day 3 night cruise, and it was just what I needed. Lots of time to explore the beauty of the Whitsunday Islands, and also enough time... More

What an amazing 3 days on the Solway Lass. Traveling was myself and my boyfriend. While we got socked with some rain along our trip it didn't get in the way of an amazing time. The crew was fantastic! They made sure we were comfortable and were able to create a full itinerary regardless of the less than perfect weather... More

Second time on Solway in about three years. What a great experience, to go out on a 115 year old ship. She is beautiful in an olde worlde rather than extravagant way - think polished wood everywhere and yet tiny cabins. But who cares if cabins are small, it's the Whitsundays, you should be up on deck looking at the... More
