Home » It’s Never Too Early To Think About Christmas in the Whitsundays

It may be just the early days of Spring here in Australia, but it is never too early to start making your holiday plans. Christmas and the New Year will be here before you know it, and these are a very popular time in the tropical Whitsundays. Are you thinking of spending your holidays on the water this season?

A Beautiful Time of Year

The Whitsunday Islands are spectacular year-round, but summertime is especially sunny and glorious. The water is a delightful temperature, and you can take advantage of all the islands have to offer. The Christmas holidays are a perfect time for families and couples to plan a getaway. In fact, spots are already booking up fast, so you don’t have time to waste.

So Many Reasons to Choose a Yacht Charter Christmas

At any time of year, a bareboat charter is the ideal way to experience the Whitsunday Islands. You have the freedom and luxury to explore the region at your own pace, choosing to devote your time to leisure, adventure, or whatever strikes your fancy. On your private vessel, you’re in control of your own holiday destiny.
Chartering a yacht gives you the opportunity to be transported to another world: a serene and aqua-coloured world far away from traffic, crowds, or noise. And during Christmas and New Years, you need that escape more than ever.
Celebrate in Luxury
Our vessels at Queensland Yacht Charters provide the utmost in comfort, style, and relaxation. Whomever you are travelling with, we’ve got the perfect sailing craft to suit the needs of your group. Nothing says festive like enjoying the luxurious atmosphere of a yacht.
On Christmas morning, wake up to blue skies and sunshine. After exchanging gifts and enjoying a delicious meal, you can dive in for a snorkel, swim, or other water activity. You can fish right from your deck in pursuit of Christmas dinner. Or perhaps you’ll choose to do nothing at all, and simply lie back and take advantage of the tranquil surroundings. We have a number of options for add-ons and extras for your charter as well, including plenty of things that can help keep the kids entertained.

Great Gift Ideas

If you’re considering a yacht charter with us around Christmas and the New Year, it’s also not too early to be thinking about potential gifts for your friends and family. For couples, there’s no better gift than booking a scenic flight over our incredible Heart Reef. You can take to the skies during the Christmas holidays and gaze in wonder over the Whitsundays’ unique and natural heart-shaped reef. You can book your flight before or after your charter with Heli Taxi for a flight straight out of Coral Sea Marina Resort. Or, you can arrange to have your seaplane meet you mid-charter with Air Whitsunday.

(Almost) No Planning Needed

Once you’ve decided to book a Christmastime yacht charter, your holiday will practically take care of itself. Aside from creating your itinerary and bringing along your gifts, once you’re out sailing your vessel, there will be no worries. It’s just you, your loved ones, and the stunning Whitsundays. You can even arrange for food service to take the hassle out of shopping for your Christmas celebrations. Whitsunday Provisioning can provide all the necessary food and beverage items you need, delivering them prior to departure. If your trip extends longer than 7 days, they will even attend to your mid-trip provisions, bringing them out to your vessel. Whitsunday Provisioning caters to all dietary requirements and budgets, and can work with you to make a tailored meal plan. You can’t get more simple and convenient than that!
