A Whitsunday Escape

Bareboating in the Whitsundays is what holiday dreams are made of! It’s just you, your boat, and the wide-open waters of this magnificent region. There are so many pockets of paradise to explore and the best part is that you can adventure at your own pace.

The team at Whitsunday Escape have an incredible fleet of sailing catamarans, yachts, and power boats available for hire. Before you set off, they’ll take you through a thorough briefing, so you can ‘captain’ confidently.

The Aquila 44.3 is one of the powered vessels that has all the creature comforts of home, and then some! There are 3 spacious cabins, 3 ensuites, a modern kitchen with all the essentials, a barbeque, plus umpteen seating and lounge areas to while away the afternoons. But arguably the best feature is that your view is ever-changing!

The beauty of bareboating is that the Whitsundays is quite literally your oyster! Langford Island is a tidal sand cay, sheltered by Hayman Island. The reef surrounding the island is home to hundreds of tiny fish keen to say hello! You can also follow a short track up to the island’s lookout, where you can drink in the beautiful views of Stonehaven Bay.

Blue Pearl Bay is just a short distance from Langford Island and makes for the perfect spot to pull up for the night. There is something magical about watching the sunset, whilst barbequing dinner with nothing but ocean and nature surrounding you!

If you’re the type of traveler that loves to choose their own adventure, then bareboating will be right up your alley! If you’re keen to do some research before you hit the water, The 100 Magic Miles is a great source of information.
