Get involved with the maxi sailing, hoist the sails, grind on the winches, helm the yacht or just relax and experience the fascination of the Whitsundays Islands and its rich ocean life.
Your sailing voyage commences the moment you step aboard one of our sailing maxi sailboats departing for Coral Sea Marina, Airlie Beach – the gateway to our Tropical Islands and the Great Barrier Reef Marine Park. These famous 74 Islands are made up of coral reefs, lush rainforest, velvet green covered peaks and unoccupied islands shimmering in an azure sea and all concentrated into a range of only 100 nautical miles.
You will sail past the many islands as our experienced crew navigate from the helm, snorkel spectacular coral reefs, laze on the world’s best beaches and personally meet an overwhelming array of sea life.
Prosail’s new 4 days and 3 nights voyage sailing tours can also consist of a stopover to the OUTER REEF where you will weigh anchor and snorkel amongst untouched reef and aquatic life in some of the clearest and pristine water in the world.
The crown jewel for the Whitsunday Islands is Whitehaven Beach. Made from 98% silica sand this 7km long beach is situated on the southeastern side of Whitsunday Island.
With Prosail Whitsundays you will navigate from Airlie Beach to this iconic white beach. You will get to walk on the natural cool sand and play in crystal clear waters; we also visit Hill Inlet Lookout, a viewing platform. This walking track is accessible from tongue bay and takes around 15 minutes to trek to the viewing platform.
Our Sailing Tours pride themselves on spending maximum time on Whitehaven Beach. Each tour spends at least 4-5 hours exploring the beach, viewing platform and stunning inlet. Our friendly tour guides are always there to answer questions and show you the best the beach has to offer.
Who are We?
In February 2018 well-known adventure sailing company Prosail Whitsundays was taken over by two young local sailors Tommy Gallagher and Josh Wilde.
Two great mates who worked their way up the ranks in the industry, starting out as hosts cooking the meals, on to deckhands trimming the sails and then navigating as certified skippers. They now have almost 15 years’ experience in this style of product between them and are the newest and youngest operators in the area.
Together with their awesome team, their aim is to offer the best overnight experience in the Whitsundays.
“Our knowledge of the Whitsundays, the industry and these epic sailing maxi yachts means we actually know what does and doesn’t work out there, we really care about the quality of our tours and do everything we can to make sure every passenger who steps on board is having the best time possible”
