As Christmas approaches, every employer begins to think about the kind of staff party they want to throw for their team. But it’s not an easy job – there’s just so much to consider and limitless opportunity. And, sure, having endless choices isn’t a bad thing, but it can be super overwhelming when it comes to finding the right option that’ll suit everyone.
But what could possibly beat your own private yacht in the gorgeous Whitsundays, with amazing views, a laid-back vibe, all complemented with incredible food and amazing service? Check out the best of the Whitsundays for your Christmas staff party onboard Waltzing Matilda Sailing, and have the most unforgettable party yet…
“Had the best time of the Waltzing Matilda, thanks to Noelle and Alex! The food was fab and we stopped off in some fab locations… highly recommend for people who want a good time but not party party!”
Christmas Staff Parties in the Whitsundays: full day sail
If you’re up for a proper sail for your team with time to escape the grind and enjoy the white-sand beaches of the Whitsunday Islands as well, book a full day sail. You’ll have time to kick back on the deck, experience what it’s like to have the sails up, and a knowledgeable local skipper looking after everything, and come back with plenty of photos, stories and memories to share.
You’ll sail around the islands, relax at Whitehaven Beach and Hill Inlet and you’ll have plenty of time for lunch ashore with the crew putting on amazing food, to enjoy a few drinks and to dive in for a swim at one of the dozens of breath-taking swimming spots through the island.
Just look at how delicious that shore-side spread is!
“Wow best time ever on board the old girl Waltzing Matilda. Only complaint is time went too fast. Food was great thanks to Doug for looking after us and Cap’n Damien for making us feel at home on board legend!! Also saw dolphins and the snorkeling was great…liked the way everyone was encouraged to join in the sail. John n Lesley cheers guys!!”
Christmas Staff Parties in the Whitsundays: half day sail
If you don’t have the time for a full day out, book a half day sail on Waltzing Matilda where you can sail to the inner islands, go snorkeling in the fringing reef, and enjoy a relaxing few hours on deck. With Airlie Beach so close to the islands, there’s loads to see even in that timeframe, especially considering the rich marine life that exists below.
Just pop on your party shirt, sunnies, grab a drink and step abroad!
Your employees will absolutely love the chance to escape the city and take a breath of salty, fresh air under the sun this Christmas.
Just look at how much fun these ladies had!
“Highly recommend 100%. Jamie & Sara gave 14 of us an absolutely fantastic experience. Jamie a great Skipper, very informative, passionate in his role as skipper & caring. Sara the perfect off sider was extremely efficient, provided delicious food (plenty of it) & quite the comic, her “BIG” personality provided us with lots of laughs. Nothing was an effort for Jamie & Sara. Waltzing Matilda is well appointed, comfortable & very well organized. I would do the trip again tomorrow. Thank you.”
Christmas Staff Parties in the Whitsundays: sunset sail on Waltzing Matilda
If you’re looking to spend a day or two in Airlie Beach for your Christmas Staff Party, a sunset sail is just the thing. I mean, who hasn’t dreamed of sailing into the sunset with a beer in hand and some good company? Even your most disheartened employee won’t be able to resist the good vibes this’ll give them.
Late afternoon is one of the most magical times to be out on the water and nothing beats sailing, especially when you have a local skipper on your side who knows all the best views and where to see them…
“Had such a lovely trip! This boat was cosy and comfortable and the crew were so lovely! Would do it again in a heartbeat and recommend to anyone wanting to have a great time!”
Christmas Staff Parties in the Whitsundays: 3-hour sail
If you can’t handle a full half day sail, Waltzing Matilda offers sails as short as 3 hours. It’s the perfect way for you to enjoy your Christmas staff party, while sailing the coastline of Airlie Beach. It’ll give your employees a super healthy dose of escapism, without having to wedge out an entire day to the trip.
Don’t worry, you’ll still get to catch all the sights and sounds of the Whitsundays, without having to worry about entertaining the crowd for too long!
“Absolutely amazing time. So relaxing!! Food was fantastic and Alex and Noelle were so welcoming and funny. Two thumbs up.”
