What We Like

Enjoy full control of your itinerary regardless of what package you choose - tailor your journey to your preferences and opt to sun bake on one of the many pristine beaches of the Whitsunday islands, explore the incredible coral reef of the shallow waters or shop up a storm on Hamilton Island - a world of options and stunningly beautiful landscapes await!

Time your sailing adventure around the time of the year that suits you - witness the spectacular whale watching season from June to September - the calm and protected waters of the Whitsundays create the ideal environment for Humpback and Pilot whales (and occasional Migaloo) to give birth to their young - as a result, magnificent whale sightings are extremely common

Sail through the Great Barrier Reef and tick one of the 'Seven Wonders of the World' from your bucket list - invest in an underwater camera (a disposable one will do) to capture the incredibly colourful fish and stunning coral formations of the reef's remarkable ecosystem

Your voucher constitutes a deposit on the sailing experience - your full payment isn't due until 90 days prior to your departure date (please organise payment and payment installment plans with Portland Roads on securing your travel dates)
