Sailing in the Whitsundays isn’t just a beautiful experience thanks to its white sand beaches, dense rain forest and marine life: it’s about the entire journey and all the many adventures you’ll find along the way. Your options really are limitless when you sail the Whitsundays with Waltzing Matilda Sailing.
Travel the peaceful way, without the noise of large engines. Enjoy the sails against the sky, the small group atmosphere and the excellent service. And fall in love with sailing the Whitsundays.
Visit Whitehaven Beach
Just imagine waking up in Whitehaven beach, with the sounds of warm waves gently lapping the shore and the feeling of sinking your feet into the brilliant white silica sand with time to enjoy the stunning environment, long before the crowds arrive.
That’s the kind of experience we want you to have at Whitehaven Beach. With an overnight charter with Waltzing Matilda, you’ll experience the indulgence of Whitehaven beach in the most private and authentic setting possible.
You’ll be able to explore the Hill Inlet – a stunning inlet where the tide shifts the sand and water to create a beautiful fusion of colours – before the crowds and take pics of the gorgeous views at the new lookouts, without any interruptions.
It makes for an incredibly luxurious experience of one of the most popular tourist destinations in Queensland – one that you won’t want to miss.
Enjoy a sunset sail
The best part about sailing the Whitsundays is the breath-taking sunset views across the islands. It’s an experience like nothing else and, when it comes to sailing with Waltzing Matilda, we’ll make sure it’s something you won’t ever forget.
Our experienced skipper knows the best time to see the sunset and the best coral viewing locations for the conditions, so your time is not wasting looking around trying to sort out where you are, and where you should go.
We treat you like a valued guest and that’s important. You’re there to be looked after and to enjoy yourself and all the Whitsundays has to offer.
In fact, our sunset sails are so popular that they’re becoming the go-to for many wishing to host bucks parties, hens nights, family group outings and even work parties.
With catering included, incredible service, stunning views, and local experience, you won’t have to worry about anything other than breathing in the taste of peace as you float along the water.
“I spent the most amazing days on Waltzing Matilda as part of my backpacking trip around Australia! We saw the most incredible nature, went snorkelling, took an evening swim and enjoyed the most beautiful sunset from the stillness of the water (hard to capture that experience in a picture). I even got to steer the boat! At night, the stars were clearer than I’ve ever seen before due to lack of light pollution”
