Bareboating Whitsundays


What does it mean to go bareboating?

When you hire a luxury yacht bareboat, you create an itinerary and plan your destinations within the Whitsundays. You are the skipper of the vessel and you invite your friends or family to experience a unique, luxury style of holiday. When you step off the plane at the Whitsunday Coast Airport you are then a short shuttle transfer to Abell Point Marina Airlie Beach where you will be greeted with a smile from our friendly team at Luxury Yachts Whitsundays. Your provisioning can be catered to your needs and be delivered to the marina on your day of departure.

What will I experience if I go bareboating on a Luxury Yacht? Imagine you step off the plane and your airport shuttle is there to greet you. A short ride to Abell Point Marina, where you are greeted with a smile from your friendly and experiences briefer.

Luxury Yachts Whitsundays

Our packages include a comprehensive vessel briefing, complete area briefing and local knowledge tips, plus mooring and anchoring skills. Depending on your skill level we allow a minimum 3-4 hours to 'teach you the ropes'. When the briefing is completed you are ready to go bareboating. No marine licence is required by you in Queensland..

Cast off your lines and motor out of the marina as you are now the captain of your own bareboating adventure and ready to explore the Whitsunday islands. Visit the stunning Nara Inlet and the Aboriginal caves nestled in the mountain at the top end of the Inlet. This is accessible by dinghy (supplied with every vessel). Travel to a secluded bay with fringing reefs and explore the underwater coral gardens and tropical marine life. Your choice of destinations are endless. 

Luxury Yachts

Experience star-filled nights in tranquil anchorages. Visit secluded bays and explore rainforest tracks and national park lookouts with stunning views. Sun yourself on world famous Whitehaven Beach or snorkel the fringing coral reefs of the Great Barrier Reef Marine Park. If that’s too much, just simply kick back and relax and enjoy the luxury and quality time with loved ones and friends.
