Why You Should Charter a Superyacht in Australia’s Whitsunday Islands?

21 November 2022

Discover why chartering a luxury yacht in the Whitsundays, Queensland, is the best way to experience paradise on earth.

The Whitsunday Islands are located in the heart of Australia’s Great Barrier Reef Marine Park, making them ideal for a destination of relaxation and discovery on board your next charter yacht.

Chartering a luxury yacht allows guests to enjoy the 74 islands and fringing reefs without worrying about driving or navigating. Each charter yacht comes with a highly qualified captain and crew.

Guests will have access to secluded beaches, boutique hotels, and exclusive resorts with pools, restaurants, bars, and more. Among the deluxe places to stay, our top pick of resorts is qualia on Hamilton Island.

Being the gateway to the Great Barrier Reef, the warm waters of the Whitsundays have abundant marine life and coral. With over 600 species of coral to explore while snorkeling or diving. A new addition to the diving experience includes the Ngaro Underwater Sculptures, a foundation to support reef health and resilience. The sculptures provide a habitat for marine life and organisms to attach themselves to. The project currently has 401 corals growing in raceway nurseries. The sculptures also offer a unique snorkelling attraction for many people chartering a yacht in the Whitsundays.

After diving on the Ngaro sculptures, guests can take their diving to new levels by exploring the underwater world at the Outer Reef. The Outer Great Barrier Reef, often referred to as Bait Reef, is approx. 30NM from Hayman Island. This experience is always weather dependent, making it extraordinary for the guests who visit here during their charter

The region is also home to the famous Whitehaven Beach, which is 7km long and made up of 98% silica sand. The sand is unique, not only because of its pure white colour, it also never gets hot under your feet!

When guests want to add a wow factor to their charter itinerary, a scenic flight over the reef is always a popular option. You have limitless flight options, including a journey to the heart reef or even landing on Dent Island for a round of golf on the 18-hole championship course!
