Overview
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.

Nothing short of amazing! The crew are fantastic humours guys who know exactly what there doing. The hole experience will never be forgotten. The snack platter with a range of fruit, crackers and cheese was spot on with complimentary drinks. The boat is very clean and well

What a great way to spend a lazy afternoon with a gorgeous sunset cruise. Nothing better than enjoying lovely drinks and nibbles whilst under sail! The crew are really friendly and informative and great to chat to. We had three generations onboard from 5 to 58 and we all loved

That's great news. Whenever we get asked what age should guests be, we find it hard to answer. Good to know everyone enjoyed it.
