Youth Camps & Educational Groups
For a School Camp, Excursion or Study program with a difference, private charter a yacht or two and enjoy an outdoors educational voyage of discovery around the Whitsundays. Whether the outcome is for personal development, or part of a specific course or curriculum, we will tailor the charter to meet the required educational outcomes.
We have years of experience taking school and educational groups on Sailing Tours around the Whitsunday Islands. Our experiences are unique and tailored to meet the needs of the group and the learning outcomes, whether the focus is marine biology, learning to sail, learning to snorkel or dive, personal development, bushwalking on the islands, or team building activities, such as racing Maxi Yachts.
School Camps range in duration from day tours up to 7 nights, depending on the group and the itinerary to be covered. Our yachts offer a moving class room and while many of the tours will stay around the main islands of the Whitsundays, itineraries can also take in the Outer Barrier Reefs, or travel south to Mackay and the southern most section of the Whitsunday Islands.
Whether the group is small or large, up to 150 students, because we have access to 18 yachts from small to large, we can make up a floatilla of yachts for the group. We can manage all facets of the planning including local transfers, flight connections, itineraries, menus (including special diets) and the more challenging tasks such as student risk assessments and marine and national parks permits. We can also supply crew with Blue Card authorisation and are happy to help from inception through to post tour briefings.
