Provisioning

Careful provisioning is key to the success of your Whitsundays adventure. Choose between our two recommended provsioning suppliers, who specialise in catering for bareboat charters.

Whitsunday Provisioning

Whitsunday Provisioning has more than 30 years' experience stocking boats for charter. From provisioning packages to delivery in insulated boxes, Whitsunday Provisioning delivers seven days a week including to Hamilton Island, offering:

  • Specially-designed Charter Packages

Charter Packages are the most popular option for catering. Choose from Platinum, Gold and Silver options to suit all budgets. These include main meals plus fruit, snacks, morning and afternoon teas, cakes and biscuits and pre-dinner nibbles and chocolates. All you need to add are your drinks (from the Beverage section) and possibly a pre-prepared platter (from the Platters section) or seafood upgrade. The Kids' Package - an add-on designed to work with all three packages - is for children aged 2-8.

Prices start at $27 per person per day for three meals.

If you'd prefer to build your own meal plan, the Easy Plan option is for you. Breakfasts range from continental to a full breakfast including bacon and eggs; lunches from vegetarian quiche to cooked king prawns and salad; and dinners offer pasta, seafood, chicken, steak, lamb and pork options. Simply choose the meals that appeal to you and order the number you require - you'll receive all the ingredients.
