The Whitsundays are also known as one of the premier fishing destinations. Between tropical islands, saltwater creeks, rivers, and freshwater lakes you really are spoilt for choice.
Known as one of the seven wonders of the world, the Great Barrier Reef is a necessity on your bucket list. One experience you cannot miss while visiting is Heart Reef, a stunning natural composition of coral in the perfect shape of a heart.

Whitehaven beach is frequently voted as one of the top beaches in the world. With its pristine white sand that stretches over seven kilometres, you’ll soon realise why people from all over the world come to visit. As the largest beach in the Whitsundays, this dreamlike paradise is unlike any other in Australia. It continues to be untouched by pollution and inhabitation, allowing its beauty to keep flourishing year after year.
Some other well-known favourites on the east coast and Great Barrier Reef include Hayman Island, Hamilton Island, Lizard Island and Lord Howe Island, all offering pristine white sand beaches and incredible adventure experiences from your yacht.
Spring is when the Whitsundays really show off, with consistently sunny weather, low humidity, and perfect conditions for swimming, snorkelling and diving.
The high season is between September to November with the low season being January to March. During June to August, you can witness pods of humpback whales as they arrive to give birth, socialise and mate.
