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

I loved this boat! I thought the Whitsundays was less magical than everyone said it would be. I preferred Fraser Island. But being on a boat like that is amazing! 113 years old now, the crew was really nice and friendly and Whitehaven Beach is lovely. Snorkeling and diving here aren't the best dive sites in Australia, but still nice... More

My partner and I went on the Solway Lass over new years 2014 for 3 days 3 nights. We were abit nervous having so many people on one boat (feared ot maybe a party boat) the people on board with us truly made this trip so much better then it would have already been. The crew were outstanding. Rah cooked... More

I was recommended this trip when speaking to someone back in the UK who said you have to go, originally I wasn't going to visit the Whitsundays on my trip to Oz but I am so glad I did. The trip around the Whitsundays with Cpt Shay, Ken, kris, gunny and tiff was just perfect. Everyone on board is there... More

The perfect sailing trip to have enough time to enjoy the Whitsunday islands. The boat and the cabins are big and have enough space for everyone, so you don't feel cramped like on other smaller monohull boats. We had 4 snorkel dives and there was even an option to do some diving. Of course we visited whiteheaven beach and did... More
