christmas sailing trip/in whitsundays


We're thinking of visiting queensland over the xmas/holiday period. Do the 2/3/4 day/night sailing companys still operate over christmas eve / christmas day? will the area have plenty of tourists this time of year or be desserted?

We did an early January sailing trip one year and yes it was quite busy. You have to make sure you get to moorings early if you specifically want to stop at popular spots. Moroings at resort islands are limited and may needed to be booked in advance. Be aware too that it is quite hot and steamy and some boats don't have air conditioning. Also you will need stinger suits for snorkelling/swimming that time of year - usually available from your hire people. Enjoy your trip.
