Party Boats in the Whitsundays

If you want a holiday with plenty of socialising with a young, fun and festive crowd in a party atmosphere, then the Whitsundays is the place to be! Here in the Whitsundays, you can enjoy a social atmosphere both on land and on the sea, with plenty of boats that cater to a younger, livelier crowd, as well as plenty of places to hang out on land.

The typical party boat in the Whitsundays is for those aged 18-35 who don't mind staying in shared accommodation, as most boats only have bunk style sleeping arrangements. They will want to meet plenty of fellow travellers that are also eager to socialise and hang out, as these boats generally host a social crowd that want fun, action and adventure!

With a fun, entertaining crew which often host evening games and after-dark parties, you can look forward to both days and nights full of fun. There is always great music and adventurous activities such as snorkelling, sailing, diving, stand-up paddleboarding and hot tubs (depending on the boat), so the party-seekers can look forward to every minute full of fun!
