Whitsunday Islands Yacht Charter Information

A Whitsundays yacht charter offers safe anchorages and coves as well as a cruising ground sheltered by the Great Barrier Reef. While weather can vary, March to May brings the strongest winds, August and September are the driest months, and the wet season is generally January to March. The Whitsunday's dazzling bright blue waters are teeming with all kinds of wildlife. Boasting around 74 islands in the chain (only six of which are inhabited), the Whitsundays provide yacht charterers with everything from secluded anchorages to great nightlife.
