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

Have been on Solway three times in the last fifteen years. Once as a backpacker, once as a couple, and once as a family. It is a rare attraction that works well for all these three styles of vacation. Still an amazing experience on a 100yo+ tall ship. Sailing, snorkelling, trip to Whitehaven and bushwalk were all terrific. Food was... More

The Solway Lass is a boat we stumbled upon by accident, a very happy accident as it turns out. The boat is a very beautiful and very old sailing ship, older than Titanic would have been. It is fitted with a motor for general use but on at least one of the days they get the sails out and thats... More

Loved the three days we spent on Solway Lass; a boat with an interesting past and an awesome crew. We were entertained and well fed throughout. Unmissable.

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
