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

We then chose to go on Solaway lass who travel around the islands and you can snorkel/dive on the fringe reef which by the way was best snorkelling I've ever experienced even though it was overcast. All the crew were friendly and could not fault anything they did. They let everyone know where we were going every step of the... More

We just completed a 3d/3n trip on the Solway Lass and loved it. It is a beautiful old ship, especially when the sails are up. It was clear that a lot of thought went into planning the itinerary (where to moor, when and where to swim, snorkel and hike, when to eat, etc.) and the crew was very good at... More

Just returned from a spectacular 3d3n cruise on the beautiful solway lass, a truly majestic lady. This is a 100 years of history hard work and is absolutely stunning under sail. From airlie beach there are numerous sailing options but for me this boat is unrivalled. I didn't want a party boat, as I had taken my dad who was... More
