Basic boating experience is essential for you to enjoy your holiday and for your safety. While we will give you extensive briefings on arrival, these are not "learn to sail" courses.
Going boating without knowing what you're doing is no different from going scuba diving without being able to swim!! A short course prior to coming to the Whitsundays can teach you all the basics and if you haven't been boating for a while, a refresher course can just add that extra bit of confidence so you can relax and really enjoy your charter holiday.
Its good fun and if just two of you are planning a charter, then we especially recommend you both get some practical experience before coming up to sail the trade-winds. Contact these organisations for information:
