Providence V is a 62-ft gaff rigged schooner which offers day and sunset sails in the Whitsundays. DAY SAILS Catch the breeze on a tallship and set sail to Whitehaven on a traditional tallship. Snorkel on the way back at one of the best spots in the Whitsundays. Walk up Hill Inlet to photograph one of the world's most photographed beaches. Lunch on board before we head off to Dumbbell Island for a beautiful snorkel with colourful coral and teeming with fish life. Afternoon fruit platter as we head homewards. Fully licensed. Learn how to belay a cleat, sweat the mainsail or just chill on deck and snorkel . We supply all snorkelling gear and stinger suits. SUNSET SAILS EVERY EVENING Slip into the sunset in style on our trademark sunset sail. Complimentary glass of bubbles and nibbles - what a perfect way to begin the evening. Combine with a gourmet dinner package at either Coral Sea Resort or Barcelona Cafe. We also offer private charters which include Christmas parties; Hens N Bucks; Corporate Charters and Weddings. We are fully licensed. Providence Sailing welcomes you on board.

We have never been out on a sailboat before, we were worried we wouldn’t like it. But we absolutely LOVED it and have been recommending it to everyone we’ve spoken to.

So good to hear. The Whitsundays are all about sailing and surely the best destination in Australia to catch the breeze and sail amongst the islands. Many thanks for your enthusiasm.
