Skipper guides

Limited sailing experience? Let one of our skipper guides show you the sights of the Whitsundays while you sit back and relax.

Boat Briefers and Sail guides 

You will receive a comprehensive boat and area briefing with a qualified boat briefer when you arrive at Shute Harbour. The briefing will include a thorough introduction to your vessel, it's fittings and your cruising area. Our briefer will assist you in planning the ideal itenerary and show you how to manouvre your vessel. If you prefer that our boat briefer accompanies you as a sail guide for the first few hours of your charter until you are confident, we can arrange this too. Pricing is available on request.

Overnight skipper guides

If you have limited experience in sailing or boating, and would prefer to sit back, relax and enjoy your Whitsunday adventure, then taking a skipper guide with you on charter is the way to go. Our qualified and experienced Skipper guides will be happy to sail, motor and anchor the vessel for, whilst providing a wealth of local knowledge of our beautiful charter area. A skipper guide will be happy to provide some pointers on sailing and allow you and your crew to be as involved as you like with the sailing of the vessel. A skipper guide will require their own cabin on board the vessel, and to be included in your provisioning.

For total indulgence a hostess can also be arranged for an additional cost (please note the hostess will also require their own separate cabin and to be included in the provisioning).
