This was my first experience as a solo traveler and I was a little hesitant. No need! The crew were extremely welcoming and proved to be experts in their roles throughout the trip. The 4 bed cabin is small but the bed is comfortable enough and you spend very little time in the cabin other than to sleep. I shared... More

This trip has great potential of being one of the best travel activities you'll experience: you get to sail with an over 100 years old ship, see the Whitsunday islands, visit Whitehaven beach, snorkel, dive (one around 30 minutes dive as an option, costs extra) and jump from the boat with a Tarzan swing. Solway Lass is also one of... More

We spent 3 days on a cruise around the Whitsundays island. We had a great time onboard Solway Lass, the crew was young and friendly, we met a lot of new nice people from different countries and we had a lot of meals during the day!! The cruise was very relaxing but also interesting and funny! Really recommended!

My best friend had her wedding on here, and it was without any doubt, it was the best place to do it. With a back drop like this, you'd think it can't get any better. Your so wrong, it DOES! The staff are so professional, and the ship, she is so magestic and magical. I will be booking her again... More

The Sulway Lass, if you are after 5 star cruising this is not for you. We had the onsuite cabin, very small and dark. This is not important, the crew professionally guide you into the workings of this old girl. The sailing was a thrill, engines off and back we go 114 years. The snorkelling and agenda was all wind...

Solway Lass is a very old boat, built in 1902. Therefore do not expect first class accommodation but in saying that it is very comfortable and we had one of the 2 cabins with an ensuite which we found essential as we are a couple of oldies. The crew were amazing and did everything they could to make our trip... More

We just had a 3 day trip through the Whitsundays on this magnificent ship. The crew was very helpful and did their utmost to make this trip unforgettable. The captain and his crew knew al the great snorkeling spots. The food was excellent, the atmosphere was great and we had lots of fun. Don't expect a luxury yacht; the cabins... More
