There are so many benefits to choosing a sailing holiday in Queensland. The Great Sandy Strait, Hervey Bay and Fraser Island makes for some incredible views, white sandy beaches, crystal blue waters, beautiful islands and world-class sailing.


Fraser Island is one of the seven natural wonders of the world, making for some prime exploring. Immerse yourself in the seemingly never-ending landscape of beaches and marine life. Or, spend an afternoon soaking up the sights on the deck. Picture bright blue water contrasted with lush green coastline and coloured sand hills, views you will never forget. Chartering a yacht to sail the Great Sandy Strait offers tranquillity, adventure, and stunning beauty.


The biggest benefit to sailing around the Fraser Coast is that it’s less busy than the tourist hotspots of the Whitsundays, meaning you get to experience the tranquillity of the area while soaking up the sun on your own vessel, surrounded by peace and quiet.


There is no lack of activities when sailing the Great Sandy Strait and the Fraser Coast. Nature is abundant and you are sure to see some incredible marine life, including turtles, dolphins, manta rays, and even humpback whales from July-November! Sailing offers an interactive natural experience, as you can get incredibly close to nature from the comfort of your own private luxury vessel.


Visit the sites of shipwrecks and abandoned jetties in the southern waters of the Great Sandy Strait, or cruise around the sheltered bays and endless beaches of the northern waters, the perfect destination to do some fishing or devour a book in the sun.


Sailing the Great Sandy Strait and Fraser Island waters is very easy to navigate and safe. We are here to help you tailor your package to ensure you feel comfortable and confident. Whether the idea of yacht hire in Hervey Bay sounds like a walk in the park or beyond what you feel like you could handle, we are here to ensure it is smooth sailing. Feel free to call us to discuss your options. We want this to be your ideal holiday!
