A few words from some of our happy customers

yacht charter whitsundays

The Ackinclose Family

This was the holiday of a lifetime. When we returned, we immediately got off the boat and walked straight into the office to book again for the following year.

We had an absolute blast. And really the boat was the centre piece of that. It was everything we could have asked for; spacious, luxurious, comfortable, plenty of water storage and fridge/freezer space, room to spread out, great cooking facilities, plenty of lounging areas and a hot shower and comfy bed at the end of every day.

Perhaps most importantly it allowed us to ‘choose our own adventure’! This holiday had it all…. turquoise waters, swimming, snorkeling, fishing, isolated beaches, white sand, incredible walks, beach combing, whales, dolphins, turtles, tropical fish, and some high sea adventures! It’s one thing to visit the Whitsundays, it’s another altogether to holiday ON the Whitsundays. Being on the water 24/7 is an experience unlike any other… it was pure joy!

We loved being on our own (the perfect covid safe holiday really!), enjoying each others company and everyday being an adventure. Not to mention relaxing and unwinding with the most amazing scenery and sunsets. This is a holiday you and your children will remember forever!

Billy & Friends

Thank you again to the Whitsunday Escape Crew for another amazing experience in the magnificent Whitsundays. We had a wonderful 10 days onboard the Seawind 1260 Volare, which kicked off with a great brief by Amee who was very thorough and very knowledgeable about operating Volare safely.

Throughout the charter the support from the ops team is first rate. Whether you want to know where the best place to overnight for the conditions, or if you need some advice about the boat, they will always go the extra mile to ensure you have the best holiday possible. Shoutout to Jordans mobile outboard repairs that paid us a quick visit in Stonehaven to help sort us out.

The absolute highlight for this trip was the time we had all of Whitehaven Beach entirely to ourselves for a few hours on a sunny afternoon. A magical moment that is unlikely to be repeated.

We’re already booked in for our next charter with Whitsunday Escape over Christmas and can’t wait to get back up there.

The Patel Family

We were first time ‘bare boaters’ and a little nervous about going out to sea in a million-dollar catamaran but Whitsunday Escape couldn’t have been more helpful providing boating information and ensuring we had the prerequisite knowledge.

Big thanks to Lachy for his ‘pep talk’ to my crew before we set off.

Best family holiday ever and we loved every minute.

Boat owners can have the best of both worlds; An income, plus private access to a professionally maintained boat in a world-class sailing destination.

How a Whitsundays bareboat charter works

A bareboating charter in the Whitsundays does not include a professional crew. You and your family or friends hire a fully equipped yacht or catamaran and operate the vessels yourselves. While on a bareboat charter, you decide your itinerary and the pace of your holiday – where you anchor each night and what activities you do around the Islands.

Some people have incredibly adventurous bareboat charters focused on sailing, resort hopping, hiking and snorkelling. Others prefer to make their Whitsundays sailing holiday a relaxing escape, enjoying lazing on pristine beaches, curling up with a book, unplugging and living onboard at a slower pace.

No qualifications are required to hire a bareboat in Queensland. Everyone receives a comprehensive briefing on how to operate their vessel safely and if needed, help is never far away. Our team are there to support all of our guests on their Whitsundays sailing adventure.  If you’re feeling unsure about your ability to handle a boat, you can hire a sail guide for an hourly or daily rate to make sure you’re confident with skippering the boat yourself.

What does it cost to hire a yacht in the Whitsundays?

The cost of hiring a yacht and sailing the Whitsundays depends on the time of year, the type of boat and the number of people you want to sail with. We’ve made it simple to get a quick quote; Put the dates you want to charter a yacht into our simple online booking system.

Bareaboat Yacht Hire in the Whitsundays is a Certified Ecotourism Holiday

Whitsunday Rent A Yacht is recognised as a Green Travel Leader by Ecotourism Australia, having held ECO Certification for over 10 years.

Queensland Yacht Charters

Whitsundays and the Great Barrier Reef

Sailing whitsundays 74 whitsunday island wonders.

Experience the best of Whitsunday’s Sailing, around this beautiful group of uniquely Australian tropical islands located inside the Great Barrier Reef and first navigated by Europeans in 1522. Lying between 20° and 21° south, you will find it today just as magnificent as it was then. These rugged islands are covered in lush tropical vine forest and are surrounded by brilliant clear blue and turquoise waters teeming with tropical fish, turtles, dolphins and whales and manta rays  in winter.

The Whitsundays are one of the few places in the world to combine nature at its unspoiled best with your choice of civilisation – from 6 star sophistication to a hammock on the beach. Aboriginals of the Ngaro tribe plied these island waterways in their bark canoes for millenia. Some remnants of this unique indigenous maritime heritage are still visible and accessible on several islands. So, when you are standing in front of the cave on the hillside above Nara Inlet, looking out at the peacefully anchored yachts to the lush vine forest across the water, let your imagination run free to thousands of years ago. The thought will come to mind “the Ngaro people certainly knew how to pick a good spot”.

Today in this special World Heritage area, Queensland Yacht Charters member of Dream Yacht Charter offers you a floating home with which to explore this treasure trove of islands. Still pristine and uncrowded, the protected waterways, beaches, coral reefs, vine forests and resorts are easily accessible and awaiting your appearance.

We offer you custom itineraries starting from a 5 night minimum, based on our Team’s extensive local knowledge, from which to explore the Islands and get the best out of your Whitsunday’s Sailing holiday.

Ask our team to tailor your visit to suit you, whether it’s Fishing, Snorkelling, Bush Walking, Paddle-boarding, Playing Pirates with the kids or Watching for Whales that takes your fancy or perhaps something a little less strenuous like kicking back in a calm beautiful bay in a sunny spot with your favourite book or saluting the sunset with a glass of Champagne and as night falls bearing witness to the moon and millions of stars so visible without all of the City lights – make the most of it – with us as your guide.

The Ultimate Guide to Choosing Your Ideal Yacht Charter Service

A re you dreaming of gliding through the crystal-clear waters under the endless blue sky? Do you crave the freedom of charting your course across the open sea, with the only sound being the gentle slap of waves against your yacht's hull? If your soul yearns for the ultimate adventure on the waters, then a yacht charter service could be your beacon in the night.

It's not just the rich and famous who charter yachts anymore. The popularity of yacht rental Dubai has soared as more people seek to escape to the seas for a vacation that's a cut above the rest. But with the plethora of options available, choosing the right yacht charter service can seem as daunting as navigating the high seas in a storm. Fear not, as this ultimate guide will steer you towards selecting the yacht charter service that perfectly suits your needs and dreams.

Understanding Yacht Charter Services

Before you set sail, it's important to understand what yacht charter services are and the unique experiences they offer. A yacht charter is essentially renting a yacht for a period, along with its crew if you opt for a crewed charter, to explore your chosen waters.

From the Caribbean to the Mediterranean, and the Pacific to the Indian Ocean, yacht charters can take you virtually anywhere there's water. You can choose to relax and enjoy the pampering of a luxury yacht, or you might prefer the challenge of captaining your own course on a smaller, bareboat charter.

Types of Yacht Charters

Yacht charters come in various flavors, each tailored to different tastes and levels of experience.

Bareboat Charters

The purest form of sailing freedom, bareboat charters, are for seasoned sailors who want to be the masters of their destiny. You'll be responsible for the yacht's navigation, steering, and safety, and must possess sufficient experience and qualifications.

Crewed Charters

If you fancy a hands-free vacation where all you need to do is relax, eat, and explore, a crewed charter is for you. You can choose the level of service with a crewed charter, from a skippered yacht where the captain takes the helm, to a fully crewed luxury liner with chefs and waitstaff to cater to your every whim.

Luxury Charters

For the ultimate indulgence, luxury charters offer opulent accommodations, fine dining, and a service level that rivals the best hotels. These charters often include amenities like on-board spas, private beaches, and a fleet of water toys to play with. A dinner cruise Dubai offers an unforgettable evening of gourmet dining, unparalleled views of the illuminated skyline, and a unique perspective of the city's architectural marvels from the tranquil waters.

Factors to Consider When Booking

When you're ready to book a yacht charter, it's vital to consider the following factors to ensure you select the right service for your needs.

Your budget will largely dictate the type of yacht charter available to you. Remember to consider all costs, including the charter fee, fuel, mooring fees, food, and any extra activities or services you might want to include.

Destination

Where you want to sail is a significant decision. It could be a serene bay in the Mediterranean, a bustling port in the Caribbean, or a remote island in the South Pacific. Consider the season, too—some regions are best visited during specific months to enjoy the most favorable weather.

Yacht Size and Type

Consider the number of people in your party and the type of experience you're after. Do you want a sailing yacht or a powerboat? How many cabins will you need? A spacious catamaran might be perfect for larger groups, while a sleek monohull might be more fitting for a romantic escape.

Crew Expertise

The expertise and personality of the crew can make or break your charter experience. Research the charter company you're considering to ensure they employ skilled and congenial staff.

Top Destinations for Yacht Charters

The world is your oyster when it comes to yacht charters, and here are some of the top destinations that entice sea lovers from all corners of the globe.

The Exotic Whitsundays

The Whitsunday Islands in Australia offer a breathtaking array of coral reefs, white sandy beaches, and clear turquoise waters—paradise on Earth.

The Warm Caribbean Seas

The Caribbean has long been a favorite for yacht charters, with its myriad islands offering something for everyone, from the festive lifestyle of Saint Tropez to the tranquility of the British Virgin Islands.

The Rich Culture of the Mediterranean

Sailing the Mediterranean promises a blend of history, culture, and luxury. You can hop between the ancient ports of Greece, the chic French Riviera, and the rugged coastline of Croatia.

Preparing for Your Yacht Charter Adventure

With your yacht charter booked and your destination selected, the final step is preparation. Here are some tips to ensure you're ready for the adventure of a lifetime.

Plan Your Itinerary

While spontaneity has its charms, having a rough itinerary will optimize your time and ensure you don't miss out on any must-see spots or events in your chosen destination.

Pack Wisely

Space is precious on a yacht, so pack light, and pack right. Comfortable, practical clothing and footwear are a must, along with essentials like sunscreen, hats, and gear for water activities.

Know the Rules of the Sea

Familiarize yourself and your party with the sailing regulations of your destination. This will ensure a safe and legal voyage and help prevent any unexpected surprises.

By meticulously going through the selection process and diligently preparing for your voyage, you can turn your yacht charter into the adventure of a lifetime. Whether you're seeking the solitude of the open sea, the serenity of a remote island, or the sophistication of a coastal city, the right yacht charter is waiting to whisk you away to your watery dreams. Bon voyage!
