Enjoy the Whitehaven experience onboard Condor for an unforgettable trip and unbelievably unique beach.

Nature's blue and white masterpiece provides the perfect backdrop for your Whitsundays trip offering a unique experience to each and every lucky visitor, and you and your group will have the best photos from this lookout!
The Whitsunday Islands offer protection to the Great Barrier Reef Marine Park, making it the perfect environment for hard corals, soft corals, and fish species to flourish. Here, you may even see bucket-list animals such as turtles, dolphins, dugongs, reef sharks and even manta rays! Quality equipment is provided onboard free of charge, and your helpful crew are there to help with any questions you may have.
Condor is famous for sailing, and the popular maxi yacht is a performance sailing vessel capable of travelling at great speeds using nothing but the power of the wind. Guests are able to give the crew a hand to help raise the mainsail, set the jib, tighten/loosen sheets and take charge of the helm - Or simply sit back and relax, this private charter is your oyster!
