This breathtaking view from here lets you see all 7 km of the beach as well as the world famous swirling sands that form the inlet


During your 2 day tour, you will get at least 3 opportunities to snorkel the coral-filled bays on the coastal fringes of the islands. Here you can see turtles, Maori wrasse, batfish, parrot fish, clown fish (Nemo) plus plenty more! in most bays, the coral starts close to shore and is easily accessible by the small tender boats. For the nonconfident swimmers, there are noodles and flotation devices available for safety.


The crew is more than happy to teach you the basics of sailing. Get involved helping the crew hoist the mainsail and headsail. The qualified team on board will give you lessons, and if you’re lucky you may get to stand at the helm and steer the boat towards your next destination.

Please advise guests that the sooner they speak to us in regard to possible delays the easier it is to find suitable options for our guest

TRAVEL INSURANCE The Operator strongly recommends that guests have travel insurance to:

  • cover valuable items (eg. Cameras, Luggage)
  • protect against unforeseen flight or coach cancellations, road closures or late arrival into Airlie Beach for any reason which subsequently leads to missing the scheduled departure time,
  • cover medical conditions that may occur during carriage, and the associated extra costs of accessing medical care around the islands, including returning to port or emergency air evacuation.
  • cover against an emergency where you need to return to port urgently, eg. a family member becomes very ill,
  • cover against full ticket refunds, including the agent commissions component.

Please ensure that the guests understand the details of the cover included for the Travel Insurance to ensure that it covers the above, for their peace of mind.


Guests should note that sailing, snorkelling and aquatic activities can be a dangerous and while our crew will make every effort to ensure guest safety, Explore Whitsundays and the Operator cannot be accountable for actions of guests that are beyond crew control. Guests will be required to complete a pre-departure questionnaire, and sign a travel agreement during the check-in process. Guests should be aware that marine stingers and other marine life live in the oceans. The Operators have the applicable Shipowners insurance to cover public liability for our guests and staff. A Copy of the certificate will be forwarded if required.


The Operator reserves the right to alter the tour or the itinerary of any of its tours and organise alternative carriers to those advertised if necessary. The Operator will always consider the safety of guests and staff and as a result, some of the Whitsunday Icons may not be visited if the wind, visibility or wave/tidal conditions are not suitable or parts of the park have been closed by the managing authority. If it is raining, our tours still operate, as the guests can still experience the Whitsundays, including swimming and bushwalking. If the winds are light, the tours will still run, however, it will be necessary to use the motors on the boats to get to the stops around the islands. We do not provide any guarantee that the winds will be consistent and from the correct direction to make sailing always possible. The Whitsundays is deemed partially smooth waters and tours will only be cancelled if the Regional Harbour Master closes the area due to gale warnings or the Operator deems it unsafe to travel. If tour cancellations are necessary and ticket balance payment or pro-rated refunds are approved, the amount being paid for the ticket to the operator will be refunded. Explore Whitsundays does not cover additional costs over or above the ticket amount. We do not guarantee a refund of the travel agent commission component or any other costs associated with the guest’s travel arrangements.


Where we do not meet the minimum number of guests to operate a service, it may, therefore, be necessary to cancel a scheduled departure and to offer an alternative TOUR of a similar or higher standard, or alternatively refund the amount being paid to the operator for that tour. We do not guarantee a refund of the travel agent commission component. Where a tour of lesser standard is arranged, any difference in the ticket prices will be refunded.


While we cater to basic diet requests, eg. Vegetarian, guests must be aware that in confined space on yachts with limited resources we may not be able to meet all guest needs. Special food or diet requests may incur an extra local payment.


Guests are asked to limit luggage as storage on yachts is minimal. Guests should pack in soft-sided bags, NO Trolley bags, please. Tours on Solway Lass, guests will be provided with a soft bag to pack-in at check-in. Guests with luggage to the store can store at our check-in office for a small fee. Guests should pack in a small soft bag with no zippers.


The Operator has the right to refuse to board of guests who arrive intoxicated or who appear to be under the influence of illegal substances. While on Tour, Guests must abide by instructions from the Crew. Guests must also abide by the Law and public nuisance, harassment, abusing our staff or anti-social behaviour will not be tolerated. Guests who refuse to follow instructions and jeopardise the safety and security of Crew, Guests, Themselves or the Vessel may be restrained and / or removed from the tour. All associated costs of removal will be borne by the guest and no refund of ticket monies will be provided.


Because many of the tours we offer are low guest numbers and some with 2 crew, it is very important that the guests have basic English understanding. Guests will spend time snorkelling and swimming and it is critical for their safety that they follow the instructions from the crew delivered in English, while they are participating in the activities. If customers cannot understand English, it is important that a companion travelling can speak English and translate for the non-English speaking guest. We do have snorkelling summaries in other languages, which are provided for guests to read. If guests have any concerns at all, please contact us before departure and speak to the operator before departing.


Are accepted for 2 days 1 night and 2 days 2 night Maxi Sailing and our 3 days 2-night Adventure Sailing. Vouchers are valid for 12 months from Issue Date.

Please advise guests travelling on Open Dated Vouchers to book 14 days in advance. The earlier guests book their tour, the better chance they have of getting the date they request.

Guests should email res@explorewhitsundays.com or ph: 07 4967 7555 with their booking travel date request. Guests will need to quote their booking reference number at the time of making the request.


We will always try our best to accommodate our guest’s cabin requests, however, due to operational issues we can never 100% guarantee that the requested cabin or bed will be available. In the situation where a class of cabin is not available and if a downgrade was the case, a refund of the difference in ticket price would be made. Where multi-share cabin classes are advertised and ticket prices are the same, we cannot guarantee the number of beds in the Multi-Share cabin. Where multi-share cabin fares are selected, and the guests do not wish to have other guests in the cabin, the only way to guarantee the cabin for the sole use of the party is to pay for the additional bed in the cabin.


The Operator will ask guests to vacate their accommodation and pack up their luggage on the final day, to allow commencement of accommodation servicing.

For 2 Day 1 Night, 2 Night and 3 Night Tours, on the final morning after breakfast, guests will be asked for their linen and may be asked to pack up their personal belongings

All guests are kindly requested to check in 48hours prior to departure. This can be done online at Explore Whitsundays Website or in person at Shop 1, 4 Airlie Esplanade, Airlie Beach. Guests will need to collect a boarding pass from the Explore Whitsundays Reservations Office in town minimum 2 hours before departure. If the guest has any questions, they can call: 07 4967 7555.
