Solway Lass – Whitsundays Sailing

[wpv-view name="product-shoutbox-promo" wpvprchildof="625"]

2 Days and 2 nights – includes 1 night in a 1 bedroom apartment pre / post sailing.

Sail away on the fabulous Solway Lass sailing the Whitsundays Islands.  You can join in and assist on board to set the massage sails or sit back and relax to soak up the sun and the beautiful views.  A licensed bar is available on board for an afternoon cocktail, a refreshing beer or a glass of wine.

Day 1 – check in and be ready by 4.30pm at Abell Point Marina where you will board and be sailing to your first overnight stop.  Light supper served so best to have a meal late afternoon.

Day 2 – (B,L,D) After breakfast it is off to Tongue Bay and the wonderful walk to Hill Inlet.  Have your camera’s ready as this is where you will get the best photo opportunity of Whitehaven Beach! Lunch is served back on board Solway Lass and then it is off to sample the white cilica sands and crystal blue waters of Whitehaven Beach (1 hour).  Overnight anchor will be in the Hook Island group near Stonehaven.

Day 3 – (B,L,D) Breakfast is served!  Time to sample the waters and put on the snorkel to view the underwater world of fringing coral reefs and sea life.  Hopefully, a turtle or two may say ‘hullo’.  Try the optional scuba diving if you have not experienced it before.  Lunch is back on the boat and then sail away to Blue Pearl Bay or Langford Reef for another snorkel before heading home to Airlie Beach.

Solway Lass is one of Australia’s most famous Tall Ships

Built in Martenshoek Holland in 1902 and first registered in Hamburg Germany. Solway Lass was Sydney’s Tall Ship from 1985 until 1999 sailing up and down Sydney Harbour twice a day. In 1999 Solway Lass was purchased by Australian Tall Ship Cruises of Airlie Beach and today Solway Lass is maintained in beautiful condition and provides cruises of the Whitsunday Islands.

The large decks on Solway Lass provide our guests with plenty of room to move about and for those who would like a “Hands on” sailing trip, our guests are invited to join in hoisting the sails and having a turn sailing Solway Lass.  Guests who prefer to just find their own deckspace to sunbath, relax and take in the magnificent views of the Whitsunday Islands, as you sail by Whitehaven Beach, Hayman Island, Hook Island, Hill Inlet and Nara Inlet.  One thing’s for sure, people sailing on other vessels in the Whitsundays will be taking photos of Solway Lass as she sails by with square sails, jibs and mainsails set.
