Home » How Long Should I Charter a Yacht in the Whitsundays?
Chartering a yacht is a wonderful experience for any length of time, but the best experience on a chartered yacht is one in which you can spend at least a week on your vessel. For yacht charters in the Whitsundays, 7 nights is the minimum amount of time you should plan to spend holidaying among these beautiful islands. With over 70 islands in the Whitsundays, there is too much to be seen on a quick trip. Make the most of your experience in Australia’s paradise. At Queensland Yacht Charters, our packages start at 5 nights, but many of our guests opt for much longer stays on their yachts, and they are always glad they made that choice. We have a hand-picked suggested itinerary you can take a look at here. This itinerary is meant for a 7 night voyage, and designed to maximise your experience in the Whitsundays–taking you to some of our most glorious island locations. But there are benefits to chartering your Whitsundays yacht for a longer period of time. Chartering the yacht for a couple of weeks, for example, allows you the opportunity to make your boat a true home. It’s a wonderful feeling to get to know your yacht so closely, particularly when you are sailing it on your own. Taking charge of the yacht for a few weeks can grant you that true Sea Captain experience. Not only that, but chartering a yacht for a longer time period allows you the luxury of spending more time simply relaxing. While many of your days can be spent in boundless activity–fishing, swimming, hiking, etc.– the other days can be spent leisurely sunning on the deck, reading, dining, conversing, and stargazing. The possibilities are endless, and your extra time at sea gives you access to all those possibilities. Having command of your yacht for a length of time ensures that you will grow familiar with the islands and have ample time to explore. You don’t want to miss any of the Whitsundays prime sites. With time on your side, you can discover the hidden coves and beaches, or find that perfect spot for the best fishing. With a Queensland Yacht Charter, you can truly make the islands yours. Contact us today and we can discuss our charter options with you. Chartering a yacht is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity which you absolutely should not miss.
