Things to consider when making your Whitsundays yacht charter booking

  • When booking, remember the value increases with duration – the longer the charter, the better the rate.
  • Sailing conditions in the Whitsundays are great throughout the year. However, demand for certain yachts and catamarans does vary depending on the season.
  • Usually there is a greater demand during the school holidays, Easter and around Christmas time. If you can hire a yacht outside of these holiday periods, you will get a better rate.
  • Vessel quotes exclude fuel, marine park fees and personal insurance.
  • The quoted prices on our website are for direct bookings only. Please feel free to contact our friendly staff to discuss packages, unique requirements and any questions.
