The Ultimate Whitsundays Sailing Tour for Your Australian Holiday

Experience all that the Whitsunday Islands have to offer on a sailing tour, including snorkelling the visually spectacular corals within pristine sheltered bays. Whitehaven Beach, which is continually voted one of the top 10 beaches in the world, stretches for 7 km of pure white sand, with trails leading up to Tongue Point and the famous Hill Inlet Lookout to take in the grandeur of the spectacular beauty of this remarkable beach.

Discover the Joy of the Great Barrier Reef Marine Park

If you’re keen to learn a little about yachting, Matador Whitsundays’ professional sailing crew can show you the literal ropes. Ask the skipper to show you how to sail while underway, and help hoist a sail to take you back to Captain Cook’s day.

Sit back on the deck and soak up the serenity of paradise while you enjoy the gentle motion of the yacht as it makes its way from the sun-soaked beach to snorkelling sites and back again. All snorkelling equipment is included in this all-inclusive Matador Whitsundays holiday package.

Matador Whitsundays can sleep 27 guests in shared accommodations that take you back to whispered conversations late into the night about your adventures with forays into the fridge for cold drinks and snacks.

Best trip in the Whitsundays

"I had the best time in the Matador! Best crew ever. Thank you Alex, Andrew and Cap Mark! You need to ask the Captain about his adventures! Totally recommended this trip and would definitely do it again if I'm ever back to the Whitsundays."

Best chilled experience

"Got to do snorkelling in two great spots under Andrews's guidance pointing out all the fish and trying his best to spot a turtle pity we were too slow to get to see it. Mark was a great captain with Cosmo great on the stove making us plenty of delicious food. "
