How to stay at the Acclaimed Hamilton Island Marina


With award-winning restaurants, activities for all ages and a vibe to match the best resorts around the world, don’t miss stopping off at the Hamilton Island Marina during your bareboat charter.

Blerth your rented yacht at the Hamilton Island marina during your sailing holiday around the Whitsundays Island and be given access to a world-class resort facility.

Hamilton Island offers activities for those wanting to break up cruising the untouched Whitsunday Islands so they can indulge, shop or dine. Practically speaking, it’s also possible to stop in at the marina if you’re on an extended charter and you need to refuel, get supplies, do laundry and access the internet.

The marina offers an option to stay the night while sleeping on your vessel or if you only want to stock up, you can pull in for an hourly rate and then head off to a different anchorage amongst the islands. We explain the logistics below.

If you are in the process of arranging your bareboat adventure with Whitsunday Rent a Yacht, talk to our team about pre-booking your place at the Marina.

 How to stay at the Hamilton Island Marina on a bareboat charter

Booking a berth is required before arriving at the marina. Book ahead through the reservations team at Whitsunday Rent a Yacht or ask our team in the radio Scheds to book a berth for you.

When you arrive, you will need to radio in and follow the directions given. The on-water marina concierge staff will guide you to your allocated berth and assist with lines at the dock. The marina staff will fill you in on the resort and the facilities you’ll have access to, such as the pools, showers and laundry.

For overnight berths, check-in is 11.00 am onwards on the arrival date and check-out before 11.00 am on the departure date. Early check-in or late check-out is subject to availability, and additional hourly charges apply.

Casual berthing is also available on an hourly rate; a great option if you want to shop for supplies, fill your water and dispose of waste then head off to your next night’s anchorage.

If you are visiting Hamilton Island over school holidays and Hamilton Island Race Week, please book well ahead of time.

Beginning your bareboat charter from the Hamilton Island Marina

Hamilton Island Airport takes direct flights from Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane and Cairns, operated by Jetstar, Virgin Australia and Qantas.

Whitsunday Rent a Yacht offers a delivery service,  bringing your charter vessel to the Hamilton Island Marina so you can start your bareboat charter from there – subject to availability & additional fees. 

The marina is walking distance from the airport terminal, so accessing your boat is convenient. There is also an island transfer service if you prefer not to walk with your luggage.

Our briefing instructor will meet you at the marina to explain how to operate your vessel and take you out for your first sail. Remember, if you feel unsure about taking a boat out on your own or would like to hire a skipper, we offer sail guide services to fit your requirements.

Starting a sailing holiday around the Whitsundays from Hamilton Island is an exciting option for charters. You can extend your holiday to enjoy the island before or after your sailing holiday, you’ll save on travel time to the mainland, and your whole holiday will be entirely based in the Islands.

To make things run even more smoothly, consider contacting one of Whitsunday’s provisioning companies to deliver meals and supplies to your boat. Alternatively, there is an IGA and essential shops at Hamo.
