A few words from some of our happy customers

luxury yacht airlie beach

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.

We had the best day despite the weather. Captain Scotty was a legend and took the kids out tubing for hours! They had so much fun with him!! If it wasn’t for his high energy for the water sports, it could have been a pretty average day for the charter - he’s really such an asset to NISI!

Skipper yourself.

The term bareboating (aka bare-boating) simply means hiring one of our extraordinary sailing catamarans without a crew, a captain or any provisions. We’ll be teaching you to do all of this yourself. YES ! – You become the skipper. But don’t worry, we teach you everything you need to know to confidently set sail (or motor) around the glorious and Ancient Ngaro Sea Country of the wonderful Whitsunday Islands.





So how does bareboating work?

We provide a world class boat, you choose to become the skipper, you select your crew (family / friends), and you provision the vessel for the charter holiday and experience of a lifetime – In doing so you charter the boat under a Bare-Boat hire agreement and take our yachts out sailing yourself. An inspiring experience. Our Skipper Yourself Bare-Boating option, is our most popular.

Portland Roads – Sailing the Whitsundays offers the industry’s leading boats at the best price for those wanting to ‘do it themselves’ in paradise.

Bare-boating is perfect for the experienced sailor or repeat customers to the amazing Whitsundays. A full briefing is provided (and included in you charter pricing) to ensure you are at a competent level before departure. Additional training can be given if you are a bit rusty…

The briefing is so thorough that even novices can give this a go – Your briefing includes Navigation, Safety, Boat Handling, Water Safety, Boat Rules, Sailing, Motoring, Anchoring, Mooring and Emergency Safety Management Systems. After your briefing, if you are still not 100% confident, we offer additional sail training, which many of our novices pre-book to maximise their holiday enjoyment and safety.

Do I need a license to go bareboating?

No, you do not need a licence or experience. We are so excited and very committed to helping anyone new to sailing get out and onto the water. Adventure Still Lives. We are passionate – We are professional. In our caring hands, anyone can respectfully learn to handle any of our extraordinary sailing vessels. 

We will always be Fair and Friendly with you. And Fabulously Fascinated by our World Heritage Listed backyard; Australia’s Great Barrier Reef and the Ancient Ngaro Waters and Islands of the Wonderful Whitsundays.

MiLady Luxury Cabin Yacht Charter in Airlie Beach, Queensland

Your trip around the Whitsundays will be an amazing experience that will give you memories to last a lifetime. The boat is a comfortable home away from home and the destinations are truely awe-inspiring. The skipper is knowledgeable and experienced, and you will feel safe in his hands: whether that is when sailing, stand up paddle boarding or snorkelling (with electrified shark repellant). On board dining is also a true gourmet experience, from the fresh local sea food to baked and BBQ delights. If you want to cruise the Whitsundays in a luxury private yacht, you can’t go past this boat experience.

Catch the breeze on a family-owned topsail schooner for a daily sail to Whitehaven Beach one of the most photographed beaches in the world. Morning tea on board and lunch with all dietary needs catered for. Disembark at Tongue Bay and spot the turtles. Walk up to the Hill Inlet lookout and marvel at those turquoise and pristine white sands of Whitehaven Beach. Then jump back on board and hoist the sails or chill on deck. Learn how to belay a cleat on a traditional tallship. Lunch on board before we head for one of our favourite snorkelling spots. Spot the Maori wrasse and the beautiful fringing coral and teaming fish life. Slip into our daily sunset sail on beautiful Providence V. Free glass of bubbles and nibbles (bread, fruit, cheese, dips) and sail across Pioneer Bay and watch the tropical sunset with its famous pastel shades across the water.

The Whitsunday Islands are nothing less than a tropical paradise. From pristine Whitehaven Beach to Hamilton Island , the Whitsundays offer breathtaking beauty around every bend. If you’re looking for a relaxing holiday on the water, the Whitsundays offer soft, sandy beaches, secluded bays, serene inlets, and incomparable sunsets. Perhaps you’re looking for more of an adventure on your next holiday? There is no lack of activities to be enjoyed, both offshore and onshore. Swimming, fishing, snorkeling, bushwalking, exploring the islands, kayaking … there are so many ways to take advantage of the local natural resources during your Whitsunday Yacht Charter holiday.

According to  The International Ecotourism Society , ecotourism is defined as “responsible travel to natural areas that conserves the environment and improves the wellbeing of local people.”

Ecotourism is important to us at Queensland Yacht Charters, and in fact, we are a certified Ecotourism Company.  Ecotourism  is alive and well in the Whitsundays.


We acknowledge the Traditional Owners of country throughout Australia and recognise their continuing connection to land, waters and culture.

We pay our respects to their Elders past, present and emerging, especially the Ngaro, Juru, Gia and Biria of the Whitsunday Islands and surrounding areas.  Read More

Skipper Your Own Yacht

No license is required for a Yacht Charter in the Whitsundays, unlike other locations Worldwide, however some experience is essential.

To charter a sailing vessel, you will need to have sailing experience and be competent in handling a sailing vessel in most conditions.

On the morning of your Charter we do a comprehensive boat and area briefing and if you feel that you are not comfortable captaining your own ship, we are happy to arrange for a Sail Guide for your Charter.

If you wish to do nothing at all on your holiday, and leave the work to us, we can also arrange a hostess/cook and crew.

Welcome Aboard - Airlie Beach Sunset Cruise

Once settled on board Lady Enid, you will receive a complimentary glass of Aperol Spritz.

Our crew will introduce themselves and show you where to stow your bags and shoes (it’s best to go barefoot on the boat when warm enough).

You will be given an introduction to Lady Enid’s features and a safety briefing on sailing out from Coral Sea Marina at Airlie Beach.

Sunset Sailing - Where to?

Once out of the Coral Sea Marina, the crew will hoist the sails.

You can freely move around the vessel and take advantage of the cushioned seating.

 With a maximum of 24 guests on board, well below our capacity of 36, you will be sure to find a quiet spot to yourselves to relax and soak up the ambiance.

Lady Enid crew will point out various points of interest and discuss the history, flora and fauna of Airlie Beach and the Whitsundays for those who are interested.

What's on the Nibbles Menu?

A selection of antipasto including prawns, crackers, cheese and antipasto is served as a share plate per couple. Individuals and groups will be given a plate to suit.

Order another drink from our licensed bar.

Choose from a selection of beer, wine, sparkling and soft drinks. 

Feel the wind in your hair, as you enjoy the cooling breeze of a sunset sail around Airlie Beach.

Marvel at the beautiful sunset over the hills to the west of Airlie Beach and surrounds.

Then once the sun has set, watch as Airlie Beach lights up after dark.

Cruising Back into Airlie Beach

Once the sun has gone down, enjoy the lights of Airlie Beach at night, before Lady Enid sails home to Coral Sea Marina.

When we dock at Coral Sea Marina, you will find The Garden Bar & Bistro right at the top of the marina arm: a beautiful spot for a drink or dinner (bookings recommended).

Or walk a few hundred metres to the north village to Sorrento’s Restaurant, and onwards along the boardwalk to Coral Sea Resort, and the main street of Airlie Beach.

Taxis are also easily booked to pick you up from outside The Garden Bar, under the portico at the Coral Sea Marina South Village.

Luxury Escapes Guide to Airlie Beach & the Whitsundays

Introducing the world-famous whitsundays — a place of protected turquoise waters, unforgettable scenery, extensive marine life and natural wonders..

luxury yacht airlie beach

At the heart of the Great Barrier Reef, just off the beautiful tropical coast of Queensland, you’ll find the Whitsundays — a group of 74 jewel-like islands ranging from well-developed holiday hubs to mostly uninhabited national parks. Among them you’ll find tropical havens such as Hamilton Island, Hayman Island, Daydream Island, Long Island and Hook Island — each offering their own stunning scenery, beautiful discoveries and unique snorkelling and diving conditions.

Back on the mainland you’ll find Airlie Beach — a relaxed resort town known for its palm-fringed beaches and aquatic adventures. Launchpad to the Whitsunday Region and the Great Barrier Reef, Airlie Beach offers plenty of action, as do northern country gems such as Bowen, Collinsville and Proserpine.

The Whitsundays is an unmatched playground for adventurers and resort-loungers. Australia’s dreamiest destination is home to turquoise water, sheltered coves, white-sand beaches, abundant marine and plant life, and endless gems to discover. Don’t miss one of the region’s major drawcards — Whitehaven Beach. Considered one of the most beautiful beaches on earth, its 98 percent silica sand is so white it appears surreal.

Whether you come for the tranquil scenery, to sail the rarely ruffled waters, snorkel with the whole ocean at your fingertips or simply sink your toes into a fusion of white sand and iridescent water, there is a Whitsundays experience for you.

Why not check out Luxury Escapes Guide to Hamilton Island for more inspiration.

Please note that due to current restrictions some operators may be temporarily closed. Check their websites for the most up-to-date information.

Featured escape

Things to see and do, enjoy a quick dip in the airlie beach lagoon.

Located on the foreshore of Airlie Beach, Airlie Beach Lagoon is the perfect spot for a day of relaxation. Providing an environment that is completely safe from stingers all year round, this patrolled haven was constructed on a raised breakwater, allowing excellent views of the Coral Sea and Whitsunday Islands. As well as featuring several pools for all ages and fitness levels, this man-made watering hole is surrounded by lush grassy knolls and landscaped gardens, perfect for a spot of sunbathing. Best of all, there is no admission fee.

Get away from it all on the Honeyeater Lookout Trail

Home to some of the most diverse and impressive landscapes in the world, Australia is spoilt for choice when it comes to spectacular hiking destinations. Located just outside the Whitsundays, the tropical refuge of Conway National Park features one of the finest: the Whitsundays Great Walk. If you’re not quite ready for a 30-kilometre hike, tackle just part of the walk with the shorter Honeyeater Lookout Trail. Winding through a magnificent tropical setting and past seasonal creeks, this two-hour return walk will eventually lead you to a lookout offering magnificent views beyond Cannonvale, Dryander National Park and the Whitsunday Islands.

Cool off at Cedar Creek Falls

Located halfway between Airlie Beach and Proserpine, Cedar Creek Falls is a spectacular waterfall set in a natural rock amphitheater. Surrounded by white cedar trees, Alexander palms, wild orchids and dry eucalypt forest, the clear water of the famed rock pool is an easy walk from the carpark. Don’t forget your swimmers! After a refreshing dip, take to the lookout, a 20-minute return, easy-grade track offering incredible waterfall views. You can also venture deep into the ancient Conway National Park to Cedar Creek Falls — on the lookout for unique flora and fauna — on a Rainforest & Waterfalls group tour.

Get up close to the Great Barrier Reef with Cruise Whitsundays

The Great Barrier Reef, Whitsunday Islands and Whitehaven Beach are regarded as some of the most unique and incredible natural wonders in the world. With Cruise Whitsundays, you can explore the region’s hidden corners, uninhabited sand cays, small islands, exotic sea life and pristine reef systems, all in complete comfort. Accompanied by expert guides on purpose-designed and built expedition ships, you’ll be brought closer to remote sites and natural habitats in the most immersive and educational experience possible.

Go barramundi fishing at Lake Proserpine

There are over 4,000 species of fish in Australia, but the elusive barramundi is the one everyone wants on the end of their line. Cast a line at Lake Proserpine — also known as Peter Faust Dam — from the shore or aboard a boat, any time of day or night (barramundi bite all year round in both fresh and saltwater), and benefit from the recent barra-boom. Everybody has an opinion on the best way to catch barra, so if it’s your first time, join a tour or charter and be shown everything you’ve ever wanted to know.

Take a walk on the wild side with a crocodile safari

When you need a break from the Great Barrier Reef, head inland with a Whitsunday Crocodile Safari — a one-of-a-kind nature experience that will get you up close and personal with native birds, mammals and reptiles. Departing from the Proserpine River, you’ll join professional local guides to explore the region’s marine mangrove ecosystem and discover the unique wildlife and vegetation of the estuaries and wetlands. The best part? The safari will also introduce you to a float of saltwater crocodiles, basking in the sun, swimming, or just plain hanging out. Do not worry, you are in safe hands.

Top places to eat and drink

Grand view hotel.

Craving simple but delicious food in a laid-back setting? A visit to the Grand View Hotel is an absolute must. Situated one block back from the pristine waters of McCanes Bay, this iconic pub has kept a loyal following watered and fed for over 100 years and is one of the region’s premier destinations for relaxed dining. Be sure to arrive hungry, as this old Queenslander still delivers exceptional local cuisine and outstanding service. Pub quiz trivia: the Grand View Hotel has been destroyed twice (by fire and cyclone), and starred as the Aussie Territory Hotel in Baz Luhrmann’s ‘Australia’.

Northerlies Beach Bar & Grill

Set on the shores of a bay in Woodwark, just outside Airlie Beach, Northerlies Beach Bar & Grill is an award-winning restaurant and bar that features seasonal seafood-heavy dishes cooked to perfection in unpretentious style. Find fresh, hand-picked produce plucked direct from the local area on the mouth-watering menu, plus an extensive selection of wines, cocktails and boutique beers on tap. The peaceful views across to Airlie Beach are spectacular.

KC's Bar & Grill

More than just a place to satisfy your growling stomach, KC’s Bar & Grill is a local Whitsundays institution. Nestled on the main drag of Shute Harbour Road, KC’s buzzing atmosphere guarantees a great time – but not at the expense of genuinely good gourmet pub grub. While KC’s is famous for its steaks, tasting plates of chargrilled crocodile, kangaroo, emu and buffalo are perfect if you’re feeling game for a taste of Australia.

Breeze Bar on Shute Harbour Road is the perfect spot for Sunday sessions or long lunches that lead into longer dinners. Any time is the right time to visit Breeze — however Happy Hour is probably best (between 3pm and 6pm). With a fun-loving vibe, cheery staff, a classic Australian menu and Airlie Beach’s finest martinis, Breeze Bar is a seriously energetic spot to start or finish a night – your choice.

Fat Frog Beach Café

If you like your breakfast with a side of uninterrupted water views and delicious coffee, your destination of choice should be Fat Frog Beach Café. Spacious and sun-drenched, this eclectic café is a friendly favourite among the locals — and their pooches. Serving great-value homemade dishes, ready-to-go options, fanciful slices, tarts, cupcakes and pastries, this dog-friendly spot truly offers something for everyone.

Bird’s Fish Bar

With over 30 years on the board, Bird’s Fish Bar certainly knows how to put together a fish and chip pack. Located on Bowen Marina, with great access to the finest, freshest and most environmentally conscious protein in Bowen, it goes without saying you’ll find plenty of it here. Expect all the usuals — including coral trout, Spanish mackerel, barramundi, bugs, tiger prawns and mud crab — as well as freshly made salads and potato cakes to throw on the side. Take away or choose to watch the boats in the marina from the recently renovated outdoor eating area.

Introducing the worst-kept secret in Airlie Beach: Anchor Bar. Set on a sprawling alfresco patio, this poolside bar personally helped bring ‘cool’ back to this village town’s after-dark scene. Boasting renowned DJs, delicious cocktails, an all-star menu of classics, and spectacular views of the bay and surrounding islands, this small-yet-busy bar oozes tropical holiday vibes synonymous with that enviable Whitsundays lifestyle.

Sorrento Restaurant & Bar

Perched atop the Coral Sea Marina, with sweeping views across the palm-fringed waters, Sorrento Restaurant & Bar is best known for its delectable cuisine and great local hospitality. Its downstairs bar offers live acoustic music and pub classics, while the restaurant upstairs prides itself on a full-service dining experience and Italian classics with a Queensland twist. Then there’s that view from the newly renovated Ocean View Deck — one of the best in the entire Whitsundays.

Lux moments

Head for the skies aboard a seaplane.

Enjoy a panoramic perspective of the Great Barrier Reef Marine Park from both the air and ocean with GSL Aviation. These comfortable seaplanes or helicopters depart daily to explore World Heritage-listed expanses, including the perfectly shaped Heart Reef. Ideal for all ages and fitness levels, this experience lets you travel in style with dedicated pilots and staff at your service. Other tours include a Fly and Cruise, Fly and Sunset Sail, Fly and Jetski.


The clear, protected waters of the Whitsunday Islands lend themselves to some of the best sailing in the Southern Hemisphere. Why not charter your own private yacht and let the landscape wash over you in the ultimate adventure of relaxation? Sail your dream with #GoBareboating and choose to be your own captain, leave it to a skilled skipper, see more by catamaran or get closer to nature with an Aqualodge floating villa.

Hike, snorkel and take in Whitehaven Beach all in one day

Visit the ‘Wild Side’ of the Whitsundays on a custom-built, semi-rigid, inflatable rafting vessel. Travelling at 65km/hr, this exhilarating ride will take you to world-famous Whitehaven Beach, Hill Inlet and Lookout, before spending time at some of North Queensland’s most pristine snorkelling reefs. You will also be guided on a memorable experience through the Whitsunday Island National Park and around some of its uninhabited islands — where flocks of marine, bird and animal life freely frolic.

See the Whitsundays from 15,000ft

Experience the ultimate adrenalin rush skydiving from Airlie Beach. After a safety briefing and short scenic flight to altitude, prepare to jump from up to 15,000 feet and revel in the thrill of freefall at over 220 km/hr for up to 60 seconds. Anyone brave enough to take the literal leap of faith will be rewarded with spectacular views of Airlie Beach and the Whitsunday Islands for up to 5 minutes under canopy, before returning to base. It doesn’t get any more exciting.

Zoom around the Whitsunday waters

Is there a better way to explore the beautiful bays of Airlie Beach and World Heritage-listed Whitsunday Island Marine Park than on the latest model jet ski? No longer just for adrenalin junkies, a jet-ski tour is the perfect mix of adrenalin and eco adventure. Better still, it is suitable for all ages as no licence or experience is necessary. Tours operate daily, and sea turtles and other marine life are often encountered when exploring the pristine waterways. Informative commentary provided by qualified guides and riding apparel is also included.

Questions Relating to Boat Hire from Airlie Beach

What is the weather like in airlie beach.

Airlie Beach is a sub-tropical environment which means fine, mild weather most of the year. There is a wet season over summer which only has occasional showers. Winter in Airlie Beach doesn’t feel like winter at all, with an average temperature of 23 degrees Celsius.

It’s possible to sail the Whitsundays at any time of year , with each season offering its unique attractions. 

Do I need a license to charter a boat in the Whitsundays without a skipper?

The need for a license will depend on the type of boat you want to hire and where you want to go. There are several considerations when it comes to a license.

  • If you want to take a self-drive boat out to the islands and Whitehaven Beach with Airlie Beach Boat Hire, you need one person to hold a valid boat license – National or International.
  • Unlicensed boats can be hired through Airlie Beach Boat Hire to fish and sightsee in designated areas. Please note that if you hire a day boat without a license, you can’t go to the islands.
  • If you hire a bareboat from a yacht charter company in the Whitsundays, you do not need a license or sailing qualifications.

Do I need sailing experience to go on a bareboat charter?

We do suggest that one person on your charter has some basic boating knowledge and we are required to have at least two crew members over the age of 18 on each vessel.

Our experienced staff will support you all the way, helping plan your itinerary, giving you a comprehensive briefing on how to operate your vessel and staying in regular contact over VHF radio.

If you are feeling unsure about your sailing experience or 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.

We also run the Whitsunday School of Sailing , which is an option for anyone wanting to brush up on their sailing knowledge or learn the basics before a charter.

How do I know what bareboat to hire?

The vessels in our fleet can accommodate up to 10 guests. You can choose a sailing yacht , a catamaran or a motor cruiser. The boat you hire will depend on your budget, availability and how many people you need to accommodate.  

To help you decide between a catamaran or sailing yacht, we’ve completed a list of pros and cons. Most families and large groups who charter in the Whitsundays opt for a catamaran.

Where can I go on a bareboat around the Whitsundays?

There are 74 Islands within the Whitsundays group with more than 40 anchorages. You’ll be able to visit secluded islands away from day crowds as well as all the Whitsunday highlights such as Whitehaven, the Hamilton Island marina and our top snorkelling sites.

Where you go will be determined by the weather and the things you want to do. We have created these suggested itineraries , however, please chat with your briefer to help customise a trip on the day you set sail.

Shute Harbour Boat Hire Airlie Beach

Whitsunday Rent a Yacht Base

Whitsunday Rent a Yacht is based 10 minutes from Airlie Beach, in Shute Harbour. Unlike other charter companies which operate from the public Coral Sea Marina, we have a private base and jetty, which gives exclusive access to our vessels and facilities.

Shute Harbour is worth a visit in its own right. The Conway Ranges National Park surrounds this tranquil haven, and the marine life is abundant here. When you hire a boat from Shute Harbour, you are instantly closer to the islands, with the nearest overnight anchorage less than an hour away. Comparatively, hiring a boat from Airlie Beach means that the commute out the islands is at least two hours longer.

If you are looking at Airlie Beach boat hire, then look no further than a bareboat charter with Whitsunday Rent a Yacht. We’re the longest operating, Australian owned bareboat charter company and hiring a boat with us means you get exclusive access from Shute Harbour.
