  • Airlie Beach: 2-Hour Sunset Cruise with Sparkling Wine

    1. Airlie Beach: 2-Hour Sunset Cruise with Sparkling Wine

    Depart from the Coral Sea Marina in the Northern Village, which is only a short walk from the main street of Airlie Beach. You will cruise around Pioneer Bay and then get up close to many of the points of interest along the Airlie Beach coastline. If you are lucky, you will be able to spot turtles on the way, and on Wednesdays you can see the locals on their weekly yacht race. Watch a picture-perfect sunset and observe Airlie start to light up at dusk, whilst enjoying a glass of bubbly.  The Sundowner is a fully covered purpose-built catamaran designed for socializing. Unlike a yacht, it has a flat surface and no trip hazards. There is ample room to move, and high heels are welcome. Plenty of seating is available on board, and every seat has a great view of the Ocean.

    It was such a beautiful end to our week! The views are worth it, hosts are fantastic! There's space at the back of you want some quiet but even surrounded by a hens and few big groups which felt like a party boat I still was able to enjoy some peace and enjoy the atmosphere and take everything in. Definitely book it was so great and just a wonderful experience!!!! 5 stars!!!!

  • Airlie Beach: Sunset Sail to Whitsundays

    2. Airlie Beach: Sunset Sail to Whitsundays

    Embark on an adventure and set sail on a 2-hour sunset sail across the bay. Be welcomed on board with a glass of bubbles.  Relax on the green cushioned seats on deck. Help pull up a sail, or two if you feel like it or just chill on deck and take in the tropical sunset.  Enjoy some snacks on the platter consisting of crusty bread, cheeses, fruit, and dips. This experience is perfect for a romantic evening and a journey to remember. Experience the boat Providence V that was in a Hollywood movie called Survive the Savage Seas and is one of the most picturesque sailing boats in the Whitsundays. The boat is built from North Queensland timber and is a replica of the old Grand Banks fishing boats,  a Bluenose or Gloucester schooner.

    A relaxing beautiful experience from the welcome drink and cheese platter, to the good company and helpful crew.

  • Airlie Beach: Fly & Sail Package

    3. Airlie Beach: Fly & Sail Package

    Enjoy a scenic afternoon in the Whitsundays including a reef and island scenic flight flying over the iconic sights in the Whitsundays, including Whitehaven Beach, Hill Inlet, Heart Reef, Airlie Beach and everything in-between. Followed by the flight, head out on the water for a beautiful sunset sail on classic tallship, Providence V. Your 2 hour sunset sail includes a glass of bubbles, cheese/dip and fruit platter. This flight and sail package boasts: • 60 minute reef and island scenic flight with guaranteed window seats • 2 hours on the Providence V Sunset Sail • A complimentary glass of bubbles • Cheese and dip platter • Courtesy bus transfer to the airport from GSL shop • Courtesy bus transfer to the marina after flight

    The flight over the outer Great Barrier Reef is an absolute must and was absolutely fantastic and awesome. I must say I never really understood what we have at our doorstep here in Australia. Our pilot (think his name was Liam) was very knowledgeable and experienced. The cruise on the tall ship was great and the feeling of the wind taking you along was exhilarating. With the trip out to and back from the airport near Prosepine it ends up quite a big day but one well worth it.

What a great way to wind up our stay at Airlie Beach. Very embarrassingly I couldn't read my map properly and we got lost at the wharf and delayed the adventure but the boys were very understanding and helped us out, waiting until we hobbled our way to the correct place, going above and beyond the cause to give us a sailing experience to remember always. W

Recommend the sunset cruise as one of your first activities in Airlie. We went on our first night there and it was the perfect introduction to Airlie before we started venturing further out to the islands. The crew are lovely and it was very relaxing having a chat and taking in the views while enjoying the bubbly and nibbles.

The owner went above and beyond to ensure we didn’t miss out due to our taxi not turning up. The Skipper, Adrian was extremely knowledgeable and friendly and his deckhand, Oscar was very helpful. Overall it was a lovely, relaxing experience, which we highly recommend.

Amazing day out! The crew Sean and Ian were fun and knowledgeable. Took us to some amazing locations. The trip was smooth and relaxing!

This was a lovely two hour trip out on the water and seeing sun set so beautiful
