2 to 6 day fully catered and crewed sailing holidays of the Whitsunday Islands
We are an owner operated Pty Ltd company with a fleet of 9 vessels, ranging in size from 50ft through to 135ft.
Commencing operations in 1985 we are the longest established Sailing Operator in The Whitsundays.
In 2007, we carried just over 21,000 guests on 2 to 6 day sailing holidays.
In December 2007 we were recognised by the Great Barrier Reef Marine Park Authority and Eco-Tourism Australia being presented with the "High Standard Operators" award.
The company has three divisions:
Southern Cross Sailing Adventures, which includes ex Racing and Maxi Yachts and is predominantly 18 to 35 age group, independent travellers on a 2 to 12 month tour around Australia. Some group market, eg. educational groups, sporting groups. Tour durations are 2 & 3 days or tailored as required. Accommodation is predominantly open plan, with single bunks and double berths available.
Australian Tall Ship Cruises - Solway Lass and our deluxe vessel, Whitsunday Magic. This division appeals to a much broader market, both domestic and international customers. Guests seeking a soft adventure holiday tend to travel on our tall ship tours. Tour durations are 3 & 6 days & we believe this product allows guests to experience small ship cruising, under the romance of sail. Accommodation is share, double or twin cabins.
