Whitsunday Island Resorts

When you charter a yacht through Australia’s Whitsundays, you have the opportunity to enjoy some of the Island’s world-class resorts.

Scattered throughout the natural beauty of the Whitsunday Islands are several world-class resorts. Fortunately, four of the resorts welcome charter yachts, giving people on sailing holidays the opportunity to enjoy their amazing facilities.

Stopping over at a resort for a day or to stay for a night or two can be a great addition to your bareboat charter. You can swim in the resort pools, dine out, go shopping and even enjoy activities such as ten-pin bowling, nature park exploring or a day of water sports.

For convenience, you can arrange for us to deliver or pick up your vessel from any of the resort islands, meaning you can start or end your sailing holiday from within the islands. Fees apply, please chat to us about adding this additional service to your booking.

 

Hamilton Island Pool resorts Whitsundays

Hamilton Island

Hamilton Island is a very popular inclusion on our bareboat itineraries. Whether you’re a family looking for kid-friendly attractions, a group of mates looking for a night out or a couple looking for rejuvenation and relaxation, Hamilton is the island resort with something for everyone.   

Overnight stopovers are allowed in the marina and attract a berthing fee. You will need to book your berth at the marina before arriving. You can do this over your boat’s radio or using your mobile if you’re in an area with reception.

The island's airport has flights arriving daily from major state capitals. Due to the airport, many charterers opt to start their bareboating holiday from the Hamilton Island Marina, arranging for their vessel to be either picked up or dropped off.

Daydream Island resort Whitsundays

Daydream Island

Daydream Island has recently undergone a $100 million redevelopment and this family-friendly Island is better than ever! New additions to the island include a small marina, a cocktail bar you can swim to and the largest outdoor aquarium in the world – the Living Reef Aquarium - complete with interactive displays within a fantastic discovery centre for all ages.

When you stay overnight at Daydream, you need to book and stay at the accommodation on the island as opposed to sleeping on your boat which gets berthed at the marina. Daydream encourages day visitors for those who don't want to book a room, however, you will still need to book your boat in at the marina.

If you are doing a day trip to a resort island, be sure to have arrived at your night's anchorage by 4 pm for your evening radio check-in with our base.
