1. Sail in calm waters of the tropical paradise of Australia, the Whitsundays
The Whitsundays Islands are a top sailing destination to charter a yacht because of its pristine tropical paradise. It comprises 74 islands off the coast of Queensland that you can visit to explore secluded beaches, including the famous Whitehaven Beach.

The best thing about Whitsundays is that you can take out a catamaran, motor cruiser, or sailing yacht without a license or sailing qualifications.

The Whitsundays Islands are protected by the corals of fringing reefs, which is the outermost layer of the Great Barrier Reef. Because of this cluster of corals, the area has such calm waters, perfect weather and wind conditions.

These corals also house 9000 different maritime species that you can encounter when diving or snorkeling. You can see yourself face to face with the following animals during your trip to this place:

  • Dolphins
  • Dugongs
  • Fishes
  • Sharks
  • Stingrays
  • Turtles
  • Whales

Charter a yacht in Whitsundays from June to September so you can witness the whale season. During this time of the year, Humpback whales migrate into the protected waters of the islands to have their babies.
