Aussie Adventure Sailing – Whitsunday Marine Academy

Aussie Adventure Sailing has no fixed itineraries for their sailing holidays. All the crew are qualified professionals, providing guests with gourmet meals and sharing their knowledge of the local ecology. Guests are given the opportunity to have a ‘hands on’ experience by helping the crew with the workings of the yacht. Or you can simply sit back, relax and enjoy the voyage of discovery in the World Heritage Listed Region. Explore the fringing coral, coves, harbours, inlets, beaches and bays of the beautiful Whitsunday Island.

Aussie Adventure Sailing’s Classic Adventure sailing yachts enable you to relive a piece of maritime history whilst at the same time enjoying the ambience of time and the space and grace of their era. Experience the adventure and romance of discovery under sail on an Aussie Adventure Sailing Holiday in the Great Barrier Reef Marine Park.

Aussie Adventure Sailing has many contemporary sailing vessels in their Adventure Sailing category, providing professional, fun filled, three day sailing adventures in the protected waters of Australia’s premier cruising ground, the Whitsundays Region of the Great Barrier Reef.

Touring Options

Learn to Sail – Whitsunday Marine Academy

Learn to sail in Australia’s premier sailing ground, the Whitsunday Islands with its premier sail training school, the Whitsunday Marine Academy. The Whitsunday Marine Academy conducts various maritime courses and is accredited by Yachting Australia and International Yachtmaster Training (IYT).

A variety of courses are conducted on the Academy’s approved sail training vessels while you enjoy the adventure and discovery of a three or six day cruise through the magnificent waters of the Whitsunday Islands. Numbers are limited (maximum six students) and the focus is on the course syllabus and learning to sail. On these cruises there is a little less time dedicated to other tourism activities, leaving more hands-on time to practice your new found sailing skills. Courses available are from Introductory through to Yachtmaster and the more adventurous might wish to enquire about our regular mile building coastal passages.
