About
Sail the waters of the Whitsunday Islands like pioneers of the past on a traditional gaff-rigged schooner. Take in the sunset over the islands and blue waters in the best possible way: from the deck of a boat. Munch on light snacks, sip a glass of sparkling wine, and snap photos of your friends or family in front of a fiery sunset over Pioneer Bay, Airlie Beach, and Hamilton Island.

Highlights
See a Whitsundays sunset from the deck of a traditional gaff-rigged schooner
Learn about sailing and maritime history by helping the crew raise the sails
Sip sparkling wine and nibble on provided appetizers
Return to shore in plenty of time for dinner
What to expect
After a full day of activities in Airlie Beach, make your way to Abell Point Marina to meet your departing sunset cruise. Step aboard the traditional gaff-rigged schooner, where you receive a glass of sparkling wine to kick off the trip. As the boat departs for Pioneer Bay, lend a hand to raise the sails if you like, or just sit back and relax. Traveling on a boat allows for the best possible views of the sunset, Airlie Beach, Hamilton Island, and Pioneer Bay. Be sure to have your camera ready to snap photos in between snacking on the provided appetizers. After the sunset, the schooner drops you back at your departure point in plenty of time for dinner.

Terrible captain/skipper
Mar 2021 • Couples
Booking process was quick and easy. Dealt with Graeme who was helpful and friendly. We were really looking forward to our sunset cruise on board the Providence.

Then we arrived at the meeting point and the Skipper/Captain (unsure of his name) was extremely rude and condescending when a few people in the group asked questions. It was so bad that we decided not to board the boat along with 2 other groups.

It really seemed like this man had been doing the job to long and had lost is passion and patience. He did not treat us with respect and it actually quite upset me when we left.

We contacted the office for a refund and Graeme gave us a full refund which we are thankful for.
Unfortunately wont be sailing with this company while that skipper is still there.

Best way to end your day.
Apr 2021 • Friends
An enjoyable experience no doubt. The kids (young pirates) had a blast at the wheel and looking for other pirate ships.
I did however find the snacks a little underwhelming as the photos on TripAdvisor were a lot different to what we experienced. Although the trip was more about being out at sea watching the sun set, it would have been nice to have enjoyed a complete hospitality experience.
That said, I cannot find fault in the cruise!

Very good trip
Apr 2021 • Couples
A great trip and friendly crew . I would have liked it to be under sail a lot more instead of a motor all the way to the island. After all I did book a sailing ship not a motor boat.in saying that the trip was worth it the sights were amazing. Rob & Christine.

Excellent way to watch the Sunset
Friendly staff, beautiful yacht, great experience. We did this last October and decided to go out again with friends. Due to Covid19 the platter isn't provided at the moment but the individual plates are still great.

Couldn’t recommend Whitsundays Sailing Sunset Cruise More
Feb 2021 • Couples
My partner and I were fortunate enough to get to go on Providence Whitsundays Sunset Sailing Cruise. We both thoroughly enjoyed it and couldn’t recommend it more. Not only is it affordable, but everyone receives a complimentary champagne when boarding and a cheese platter. The workers are extremely friendly and ensure everyone is having a great time. Their kindness and humour allowed us to enjoy every part of our cruise. My partner and I both agreed it was by fair the best thing we did on our whole trip to Airlie Beach.
