DAILY SUNSET SAIL
ON BOARD PROVIDENCE V
Our classic sunset sail welcomes you onboard with a glass of bubbles and takes you out across the bay where we catch the breeze and set sail. We love engaging with our guests an offering them to a chance of hoisting a sail; take a turn at the helm and learn about sailing a traditional vessel. Or if you prefer, just relax and chill with a drink from our fully licensed bar and nibble on our freshly made platter of bread/cheese/dips and fruit.
You might also like a day sail across to Whitehaven. What better way to save energy than catch the breeze across Whitsunday Passage through Hook Passage to Whitsunday Island. Walk up to Hill Inlet lookout and then down the glorious Whitehaven Beach from where you can snorkel on the fringing reef.

SAIL WITH US AND PROTECT THE REEF
Our vision is to honour and protect the World Heritage UNESCO listed Great Barrier Reef, the only living organism to be seen from space. The biggest threat to the Great Barrier Reef is climate change. We pride ourselves on caring about the environment and have been eco-accredited by Ecotourism Australia. We are also Healthy Heart partners with the Whitsunday Regional Council counting our carbon emissions so we can reduce our carbon footprint.
We don't sell bottled water. We have a minimum of waste onboard and use biodegradable plates and recycled wrapping. We have the latest environmental toilets. We handed back a tourism award because it was sponsored by the coal giant Adani. Best of all - we have a low carbon footprint - we use our sails when we can.
Want to help protect this beautiful reef? Our latest tailored cruises focus on preserving our coral and reef for future generations. Jump on board and get involved in saving this amazing life and helping it to recover.
