Here’s why you will love exploring the Whitsundays on board Summertime
A classic timber ketch handcrafted in South Australia back in 1945. Since then Summertime has been beautifully restored and is the ultimate in sailing comfort. Modern refits have included a DVD/PC system, fully air conditioned throughout and a fresh water jacuzzi. Relax on the spacious decks with areas to snooze in the shade or soak up some sun. Ask your skipper to explain some of the navigational equipment and sailing aids as you cruise from one island to the next, or even take the helm and experience being captain for a while!
From the wheelhouse you step down into the saloon which is spacious and comfortable. It is an ideal place to relax in air conditioned comfort and watch a movie or the your day’s slide show of the Summertime adventures. Summertime is equipped with two large toilets and showers.
Sailing the wonders of the Whitsunday Islands on board the Summertime 2 days 1 night cruise, you will have the opportunity to laze on the famous Whitehaven Beach, snorkel fringing reef and with sufficient kayaks for all on board our friendly guide will take you on an eco-friendly exploration of beautiful hidden inlets and fringing reefs.
