There’s something truly special about boating. The open waters, the fresh sea air, limitless views without any walls.
Fraser Island Boat Charters allows you to explore the region’s waters at your leisure with skippered charters or bareboating and three vessels to choose from.
The beauty of a skippered charter is the opportunity to sit back, relax and take it all as Scott Whitcombe, or one of the other skippers from the team do all the hard work.
On the other hand, there are plenty of benefits to bareboating too.
“We give you a full briefing, takes a couple of hours to show you throughout the boat,” Scott said. “Show you how to sail, how to motor, how to navigate, how to use the radio, everything.”
They also have a new fishing charter on offer so whether you’re after relaxation or action, you’re covered.
With magnificent Fraser Island as a backdrop, you can’t go wrong. Not only is it a visual feast, but the island creates a windbreak meaning there are many spots you can find shelter from the wind.
“Behind Fraser Island, behind Woody Island, behind Little Woody, you can go down the Great Sandy Straits, you can go into Ungowa,” Scott said. “You can go as far south as Tin Can Bay and as far north as Rooney’s Point.”
The freedom isn’t limited to the water either. With so many islands all along the Great Sandy Strait, it’s a case of anchoring up where ever you please.
The highlight of staying aboard overnight though has got to be the sunset over the water. Then again, you have the gorgeous sunrise to look forward to as well.
