Welcome to the Whitsundays!

Southern Cross Sailing Adventures has been providing sailing holidays through the Whitsunday Islands since 1985. 



During our Whitsundays sailing tours guests can get involved and learn the sailing basics, there is time to bushwalk on the islands and feel the sand between your toes.  Snorkel and swim on the islands fringing coral reefs.  


The Whitsunday Islands are in the centre of the Great Barrier Reef Marine Park and today 66 of the 74 islands remain undeveloped and in their natural state. Try snorkelling at the amazing fringing coral reefs teeming with marine life, located at Border Island, Hayman Island or Hook Island. Langford Reef is a sand spit surrounded by coral reef which many turtles cruise around feeding and then rest on the bottom between the coral bommies. Coral bommies are coral structures with gaps in between and typically sand on the bottom in the gaps.  

Whitsunday Islands

Snorkelling in the Whitsundays is helpful for weaker swimmers or first time snorkellers because the reefs extend from the edge of the islands and the guests can swim just a few metres to the shore when they want to have a rest. Indeed, in many of these locations if you stand on the edge of the beach in waste deep water you can see coral and fish.


Other amazing locations such as Border Island, which is a beautiful anchorage and gets its name from its location .... Then how about a unique opportunity to stand on a sand spit in the night under a sky full of stars... these experiences are sure to create envy and bragging rights with your friends. New for the Whitsundays is a short scenic walk at Langford Reef with views to Hayman Island and Hook Island and the Whitsunday Passage. Plus see the Whitsunday Bottle Tree which is native to the Whitsunday Coast and Islands. The latest news from Queensland National Parks has a new viewing platform overlooking Hill Inlet and Whitehaven Beach.
