How can you resist?

Hours: 8am until 6pm


Airlie Beach Day Sailing is a new boutique owner/operated Gourmet Day Sailing experience for a maximum of 10 guests. Adults only except for private charter.
Indulge in the peace and tranquility of sailing the Whitsundays and soothe your palate with the delicious gourmet lunch prepared from scratch by the most amazing chef.
A day tailored to suit guests and Mother Nature combined with low guest numbers make this a truly personal experience. No two days the same though each as special as the next.
Owner/skipper Dale's years of experience and passion for sailing is obvious and contagious. He is more than happy to let you take the helm or trim the sails! Or just relax and enjoy the views surrounding you in the heart of the Great Barrier Reef.
If you are looking for an authentic experience in an idyllic location with good company and great food then look no further.
All food and light beverages included. BYO alcohol for the sail home. Great memories guaranteed!
