Samurai Whitsundays Tour Information
Sailing on an ex-racing yacht is one of the most invigorating holiday activities you can experience. Samurai Whitsundays runs two days 1-night tours of the Whitsundays Islands. Departing from Airlie Beach, you spend your holiday exploring the coral-filled bays around the islands and visit the jewel in the region’s crown, Whitehaven Beach. All Samurai guests will get to experience Hill Inlet Lookout on the Northern end of the beach; here you will see the famous swirling sands in the inlet. The boat was refurbished last year and sleeps 23 guests comfortably in a mix of share single and double beds. Samurai was one of the final boat designs to sail on its side and lean far over. If it’s an adrenaline-filled two days, your after….this tour is for you!
