Adventure, Luxury and World-Class Tropical Beauty With Salty Luxe

We recently had the pleasure of hosting Sarah and Chesh from Salty Luxe on a Charter in the Whitsundays. If you haven’t already seen the stunning footage from their trip, you can check it out @saltyluxe and read about their adventures sailing themselves through The Whitsunday Islands on the Salty Luxe Website.

Sarah and Chesh had very little experience managing boats by themselves, so they had one of our Sail Assistance sessions prior to their charter.

“The previous day we’d spent hours learning the ropes (pun intended ) with a pro to make sure we were up for the challenge. Turns out we picked everything up quickly & worked really well as a team to drop anchor & navigate etc ~ the experience was EPIC & I so recommend it! We can’t wait to do this again with our friends!”

Here’s Sarah in command of one of our luxurious Bali Catamarans.

“My face says it all. This day was beyond amazing!! It was our very first day at sea, sailing ourselves through The Whitsunday Islands.”

– Sarah @saltyluxe

We highly recommend the Sail Assistance session to all our guests if they have any doubt about being in charge of a large Catamaran by themselves. Sarah and Chesh did an excellent job of it and had an awesome experience sailing through The Whitsunday Islands on their own. We are absolutely sure you can too!

Sarah and Chesh found the experience to be a totally immersive one, where every moment was spent enjoying the crystal clear waters, stunning fish and corals and incredible white sand beaches. Picnics, cheese platters, cocktails and stargazing were also on the menu!

Why You Need To Experience A Dream Yacht Charter

While visiting Australia’s famed Whitsundays, there is no better way to discover the islands than chartering a yacht. 

Chartering your own yacht gives you:

  • Freedom to explore on your own terms and travel at your own unique pace
  • Complete privacy out on the open water
  • Options –  fishing, snorkelling, swimming and diving are all on offer
  • Adventure – Explore the islands at your own pace with your yacht serving as your home base. Hike, bushwalk or have a romantic picnic on the beach! 
  • The opportunity to bond with your loved ones. There’s nothing like teamwork, the magic of the ocean and the wonders of nature to bring you together. 
  • Get closer to nature. From dolphins to rays to sea turtles and so much more, you’d better get your camera ready

There are a variety of vessel sizes and styles to choose from, but all provide the utmost in comfort, style, and relaxation. 

A holiday on a chartered yacht is truly an incomparable experience. What are you waiting for?

Do I Need Sailing Experience?

Have you always dreamed of Chartering a Boat in the Whitsundays?

Have you thought that maybe it’s not something that you and your partner could manage together, especially on a big Catamaran? 

Think again!

The complete freedom of guiding your own vessel is an incredible feeling and you don’t need a license to charter a yacht. If you have boating experience we will let you take the reins in navigating your own journey, but if your skills are limited or haven’t been put to use in a while,  you can take one of our Sail Assistance sessions.

Both power and sailing boats are available to suit your style, so there’s nothing stopping you from getting out there on the water and having a spectacular experience unlike any other.
