Here’s why you will love exploring the Whitsundays on the Derwent Hunter Day Sail Whitsundays Day Tour

Derwent Hunter was built in 1945 by the Wilson Brothers, shipwrights from Tasmania, out of blue gum and strong Tasmanian oak. She has had a long career on the water but for the past 25 years has enjoyed the sheltered waters of the Whitsunday Islands.

The actual itinerary will vary as this is a REAL sailing adventure. You are invited to assist the crew to raise a sheet, or simply relax and watch the stunning scenery of the Coral Sea. Throughout the day your crew will ensure you enjoy the vibrant coral reefs, spectacular tropical beaches, and scrumptious foods on offer for your adventure. Many of our winter guests are lucky enough to spot the humpback whales that call the Whitsundays home, and year-round keep your eyes peeled for sea turtles and the large rays that sometimes leap from the water.


Derwent Hunter Day Sail Tour Plan

The courtesy bus is available to transfer you to the southern end of Abell Point Marina and your departure point for your adventure aboard Derwent Hunter.
Set sail across the Whitsunday Passage and take this opportunity, if you wish, to learn what it takes to crew a sail boat. By 10:30am morning tea will be served as you cruise into the anchorage point for your snorkelling spot. Your crew will choose the perfect place for the weather conditions to ensure you have the best experience possible.

Your cruise will also include the opportunity to step ashore one of the beautiful 74 Whitsunday Islands. Sink your toes into the soft white sand and laze in the warm tropical sun before returning to Derwent Hunter for your scrumptious buffet style lunch.

After everyone has eaten, make your way back to Airlie Beach. Here is another opportunity to learn the ropes, or, for a more relaxed afternoon, purchase a drink from the licensed bar and enjoy a cheese platter with the wind in your hair.

The courtesy bus will also be available to return you to your Airlie Beach accommodation from the Abell Point Marina berth.

Please Note: This is a sample tour plan; your itinerary is based on the weather and tidal conditions experienced at the time of travel.
