Words simply cannot do this experience justice. This boat is incredible. It has such character and the crew do a fantastic job at looking after you above and beyond expectations. The cabins are cute, the food is amazing (thanks Rah!), the energy can be chilled or active depending on what you want out of it. Captain Chey did a great... More

I loved this boat! I thought the Whitsundays was less magical than everyone said it would be. I preferred Fraser Island. But being on a boat like that is amazing! 113 years old now, the crew was really nice and friendly and Whitehaven Beach is lovely. Snorkeling and diving here aren't the best dive sites in Australia, but still nice... More

The wife, 10 y/o and I wholeheartedly concur with all the prior rave reviews including awesome staff/food (Sarah is a sweetheart and an amazing chef that made sure no one went hungry, Gunny was hilarious and very attentive, Kate made sure no glasses were empty), scenery (Whitsundays-nuff said), fascinating fellow passengers from all over the globe, general relaxation/fun quotients (great...

My partner and I went on the Solway Lass over new years 2014 for 3 days 3 nights. We were abit nervous having so many people on one boat (feared ot maybe a party boat) the people on board with us truly made this trip so much better then it would have already been. The crew were outstanding. Rah cooked... More

I was recommended this trip when speaking to someone back in the UK who said you have to go, originally I wasn't going to visit the Whitsundays on my trip to Oz but I am so glad I did. The trip around the Whitsundays with Cpt Shay, Ken, kris, gunny and tiff was just perfect. Everyone on board is there... More

The perfect sailing trip to have enough time to enjoy the Whitsunday islands. The boat and the cabins are big and have enough space for everyone, so you don't feel cramped like on other smaller monohull boats. We had 4 snorkel dives and there was even an option to do some diving. Of course we visited whiteheaven beach and did... More

My fiancé and I went on the Solway Lass about a week ago for the 3 day/3 night trip. We have basically no complaints, it was the most perfect 3 day getaway! The only tiny thing we would've changed was having a little more time to spend at Whitehaven Beach, as we only got an hour to swim and play.... More

We stayed on the boat 3 days and 3 nights and had an amazing experience. The crew were great especially gunny who was funny and knowledgeable and Sarah who accommodated to my prego and dairy free needs with the cooking. We didn't get to sail much due to the lack of wind but It did mean we got to travel... More

This really is the best way to experience the Whitsundays. The boat is amazing, its great to look up and see the huge masts. Admittedly we didn't use the sails much as their was very little wind on my trip but it was still great. The crew are all really nice and a special acknowledgement goes out to Sarah who... More
