Solway Lass is a beautifully preserved tall ship with a rich history that you’ll feel the moment you step onboard. Today, she provides leisurely sailing tours around the islands. Expansive deck space, a licensed bar, air-conditioned cabins, and comfortable saloon ensure guest comfort.

There is a fun rope swing, glass-bottom boat, and stand-up paddleboards adding to the excitement and adventure. You can help pull up some of the impressive 11 sails or take a turn on the helm. Whatever your age, Solway Lass is sure to deliver a unique experience and life-long memories.

  • Depart from the Coral Sea Marina at 4.00pm and sail to your first anchorage of the trip in Hook Passage in between Hook and Whitsunday Island.

  • Get involved with setting the sails (optional)

  • Enjoy the first sunset of the trip as you sit back and relax, floating across the Whitsunday Passage and meet your fellow holiday makers.

  • Have breakfast whilst on the move to Tongue bay, the gateway to Whitehaven Beach.

  • Take a short, guided bush walk up to the Hill Inlet Lookout to take in the 7km stretch of the remarkable Whitehaven Beach below you. After taking in the breathtaking views, walk down to the beach itself and feel that silica sand between your toes.

  • Sail north to one of the beautiful bays in the area where you can kit up with snorkelling gear and  jump in to explore stunning coral reefs. The vibrant, tropical fish will welcome you into their home.

  • Sail onwards to stop in a secluded bay to the golden hour as the sun sets over the Whitsundays. During dinner get stuck into a conversation with your new-found friends whilst on deck under the stars.

  • Rise early for breakfast for one more chance to snorkel in a nearby bay and see the fringing reef for the final time, maybe spot a turtle if you’re lucky.

  • Set the sails for the final time to make your way across the Whitsunday Passage and arrive back into Airlie Beach at 1.00pm.

This boat has a range of cabin configurations to suit all travellers, whether you’re a family a group of friends, a solo traveller or a couple.

Prices start at $529pp
