Memorable Airlie Beach Boat Tours Set Sail from a Vibrant, Fun Town

We want to share our passion for sailing with you on our Airlie Beach boat tours. Whitsunday Sailing sets the standard for adventure and service in trips leaving from Airlie Beach. Read how we excel in making your journey memorable.

Tips Regarding Airlie Beach Sailing

There are many reasons to begin a sailing adventure from Airlie Beach. Its subtropical climate means you can enjoy the weather year-round. Read more about why Airlie Beach will become your favourite spot for an extended vacation after returning from an adventure with us:

  • Whitehaven Beach is one of the most recognised beaches in the world. It is situated on Whitsunday Island and is accessible from Airlie Beach by helicopter, boat or plane. Why rush to the location in a motor-powered vehicle when you can sail quietly through the beautiful waters to reach your destination?

  • Airlie Beach is the entry to the 74 Whitsunday Islands. Before you leave and upon finishing your sailing adventure, the town offers a plethora of restaurants, bars, shops, and accommodation lining the main beach. The main reason people visit Airlie Beach, however, is because of the access it provides to the Great Barrier Reef.

  • Conway National Park is close to Airlie Beach. Before setting sail from the harbour, visit the park and enjoy the secluded beaches, tropical rainforest, the open forest, and the mangroves. 

What sets Whitsunday Sailing Apart from the Crowd Regarding Airlie Beach Yacht Hire?

We are an environmentally friendly  enterprise with a small carbon footprint. We care deeply about the experience of those who set sail with us and enjoy what we do. We aim to be the best in Airlie Beach boat tours: 


  • Our passion is to honour and protect the Great Barrier Reef, which is threatened by climate change. We provide chilled water rather than bottled water and use recycled paper cups. Our lunches come with minimum wrapping, and our toilets are environmentally friendly.

  • Our business is family-owned and operated, and our children all learned to sail the two yachts we own. Grant’s daughter works on board as a deckhand. Our work is our passion, and we pass that enthusiasm to you.

  • Our crew stands above the rest. You’ll read in published reviews that they are welcoming, accommodating, and knowledgeable. They consistently work hard to make your experience memorable.

Whitsunday Sailing has an accessibility policy and we aim to be inclusive and welcome all guests irrespective of disability. (Please see additional info below)*. We welcome all guests of all abilities and ages including infants to enjoy sailing with us. 

We welcome guide dogs on board for visually impaired guests and our crew have been trained to cater to both visually and hearing impaired guests. We allow wheelchairs and strollers on board as long as they are collapsible and can be safely stored. 

*Please note our vessels are not suitable for guests considering the day sail who are solely reliant on a wheelchair as the toilet (head) on both vessels are downstairs off the saloon and only accessed by the stairs and it is a 9-hr sail. Also, we would not be able to take the wheelchair to Whitsunday Island for the walk to Hill Inlet. Our sunset sails however are shorter (2 hours) and may be considered suitable for those reliant on a wheelchair if it can be stored below.
