Learn all about the astonishing 4-day Whitsunday Explorer tour

Whitsunday Explorer tour

Whitsunday Explorer offers so much more and is truly designed for those of you that love exploring the Whitsunday Islands. The tour is conducted on Solway Lass our 119-year-old tall ship.

This trip is different, you’ll see more and do more than any other Whitsunday’s sailing trip.

The idea for the trip came from the success of the Walk the Whitsundays program which has run since 2019. That trip as the name suggested focusses on walking a diverse range of QPWS tracks mainly on Whitsunday Island and South Molle Island.

We had a number of guests suggest that instead of walking all over the place could we design a trip that reached some of the out of the way destinations that people don’t see on a shorter trip or when bareboating. The answer was yes and so Whitsunday Explorer was born.

Whitsunday Explorer cruises south of Hamilton Island and visits the rarely experienced islands of Lindeman, Shaw and Thomas.

The focus of the trip is to unwind, relax and escape the winter. In June and July 2021, we have added two dates for the 4 day 3-night cruise. See dates here.

Our guests are generally over 50, active and enjoy connecting with nature.
While walks, snorkelling, paddle boarding and the Tarzan rope are all scheduled activities, you may also prefer to lie on the sand, read a book in the bow net or stroll down the beach. It’s you holiday, so choose whatever activity suits you on the day.

Nights can we spent star gazing or selecting a glass or wine or cocktail from the bar. Solway Lass offers a range of accommodation to suit you, your friends and family. This trip is especially suited to solo travellers.

So, if you can’t face another winter in the cold at home, come join us for a trip full of amazing sights, whales and opportunities to make new friends and lasting memories.
