Sailing trip on Broomstick, Whitsundays
Passengers of Broomstick are very lucky to be onboard a vessel so incredible, it was originally built to win the Cape Town to Rio Yacht Race some years ago.
Today, Broomstick continues to be an outstanding maxi sailing vessel and delivers an amazing sailing experience unlike others in the Whitsundays.
Broomstick is popular among the 18-35 crowd who are seeking fun and adventure rather than young backpackers, and her trip is great value with a varied mix of socialising and relaxation.
The vessel itself is huge in size, spanning some 22 metres and providing ample room for the 24 guests to socialise and unwinding. And when Broomstick’s sails are set by the crew (passengers can help as well) guests will experience her true speed when she gets under way.
Throughout the 2 day/ 2 night trip, passengers will get up close and personal with everything on their Whitsundays’ bucket-list including the chance to swim and snorkel alongside turtles and other marine life.
Or why not experience a scuba dive over the Great Barrier Reef Marine Park with the rendezvous scuba option for both experienced and introductory divers.
There is also plenty of beach time on the most famous beach of them all – Whitsunday Island’s Whitehaven Beach as well as a guided bushwalk to the equally popular Hill Inlet Lookout.
Back onboard, Broomstick offers plenty of room to relax on the deck or below with a spacious interior and open style layout including the shared accommodation.
The evenings are great for heading out to the huge decks with a drink and enjoy more socialising and fun festivities with the group and new-found friends.
