Lady Enid recreates that classic age of yachting enjoyed in the 1960’s when sailing was more about elegance and chic than corporate sponsorship and carbon fibre. The experience of sailing to Whitehaven Beach on this beautiful and rare classic gives...more

We are a couple in our 70's and couldn't have had a better day out. The crew were both funny and informative. The food was amazing and we got to do a bit of everything (sail, beach swim, walk to a lookout and snorkel). Very...More
The day started with a pick up from our accommodation right on time, and a warm welcome at the marina by the crew. Lady Enid is majestic looking, a classy lady indeed. The on board safety briefing by the skipper Dave was serious but humorous...More
great yacht; small group of people; we have been lucky to have a good wind to be able to sail; very nice snorkeling spot with lots to see; the crew is fantastic and have provided us a great service throughout
There are no words to describe this amazing experience. I’m more than happy that I chose Lady Enid to see the Whitsundays. It was just a perfect day. The crew was amazing, they made this day special. Thank you for that!
Had a lovely day sailing on Lady Enid. Staff were extremely helpful and friendly. Food was good and plenty of water to keep hydrated. Whitehaven beach was beautiful and swimming was lovely. Sailing is a bit slower so if you want heaps of time on...More
This was a great experience. The crew were friendly and very accommodating. Sailing is by no means the fastest way to get out to Whitehaven Beach but it’s a really cool experience. You won’t get the maximum amount of time out there but it’s great...More

The bubbly on the return journey is 1 glass and included in the price. There is an option to purchase an alcoholic drink during the sail out to Whitehaven and also with lunch! This is a quality sail, for couples and not a party boat. The sailing is the main part of the day, probably an hour snorkelling and anchored uo for a further 45 mins for lunch. After that a sail to Whitehaven and approx 69 mins there! The sail back to Airlie is about 3 hours (if I remember correctly) depending on tides and weather. It is an amazing sailing experience. Hooe you go for

Thank you for your message.
Unfortunately you will not be able to make it in time and we cannot guarantee we will be back in time for you to catch your return transfers. I have tried ferries, helicopters and an island taxi service and it is not logistically possible. And the tour does not allow enough time for us to go to Hamilton Island.
We only operate out of Hamilton Island on a private charter basis.
I am sorry we cannot help at this time. Enjoy your time in the Whitsundays.
