Wasting no time at all, your 2 day and 1 night adventure cruise begins at 8am, departing from Coral Sea Marina. During your two days, you will cover around 90 nautical miles or 160 kilometres. You will begin by sailing across the Whitsunday Passage to Blue Pearl Bay off of Hayman Island. Next you will sail around the southern side of Hook Island, pass through Hook Passage and speed sail your way to Cataran Bay on Border Island. Afterwards, you will head to the northeastern side of Whitsunday Island to Whitehaven Beach, where you will take a guided bush walk up to the ever-talked-about Hill Inlet Lookout. Don't forget to bring your camera as this will be a view you will want to capture forever. You'll get to enjoy the amazing beach below, taking time to swim in the warm shallow waters. Your crew will proceed to find you a nice and protected anchorage site for a night of fun. In the morning, you will make your way back to Airlie beach, where you will pass along the western coast of Whitsunday Island, through Hook Passage and follow the eastern coast of Hook Island, passing the Molle Islands.

"Loved my trip on Hammer, I had never sailed before but they literally showed us the ropes! Crew made it extra fun, especially our skipper Ellen, really loved the nachos!"
Diane
"I went on Hammer with a couple of friends while in the Whitsundays, I had never been proper sailing before! It was a perfect mix between fun and social and relaxing but also adventure and the crew definitely made it even better. You can get involved with the sailing and see how the proper racing yachts can go so fast. Loved escaping the real world for a night too."
Emily
"I really loved the sailing and was given the chance to steer, awesome crew and would recommend to all my friends."
Jennifer
"I had a wonderful time sailing around the Whitsundays with Prosail. The crew (Clancy, Molly, Sas, and Yasmine) were SO great - helpful, relaxed, and a lot of fun. The food was top notch. I have a ridiculous number of food allergies, and they were able to accommodate them graciously with no fuss, being very mindful of cross contamination. I highly recommend booking one of their tours!"
Stephanie C
"I booked for this boat with one of my friend without knowing how it was going to be. It was totally amazing. The crew was really nice and fun. The fact that a girl is running the boat is really nice too. Her name is Saskia and she is really nice. She's calm and make us feel really safe. The other members of the crew, Clansy and Jay, are amazing too. (GIRLS, BE READY - they are really sexy, funny and they are cooking the food... Wow!). The food was really good by the way. Enough for everyone and everything was really fresh. Another good thing is that they take the time to choose the right spot for the snorkelling. Also, they are often giving information about what we are seeing or about the boat. Really interesting. If you are hesitating, you should totally book with the Hammer! And hope that you are going to have these amazing people with you for your trip!"
Annabelle Marcoux
"Excellent crew, excellent vibe, excellent food, EXCELLENT. 10/10 would recommend!"
Dan Sawyer
"My friends and I have just come off The Hammer 2 day/1 night sailing adventure and could not even believe how beautiful it was and how much fun we had! The crew were hilarious and extremely responsible, we all felt really safe and comfortable around them. The food was delicious and so much if it, with 2 breakfast, 2 lunches, 1 dinner and a bunch of snacks being included (NACHOS for afternoon tea anyone?). The bathrooms and showers aboard The Hammer were always clean, and to be honest we didn't even need the showers as we were in and out of the beautiful ocean so often. We saw so much marine life including sea turtles, parrot fish, and beautiful coral gardens, and we fed these massive batfish of the side of the yacht where they would come close enough to touch! If you chose to sleep on a bed rather than on the deck (not me) it was comfortable and a good temperature to sleep in. I slept on the deck and listened to my hilarious group belt singing and having an amazing time while I was laughing, and looking up at the full moon above and all of the stars! All in all, an absolutely INCREDIBLE experience and one I will recommend to everyone I come across. Cheers guys!!"
Georgie
"Booked the 2 day 2 night on the Hammer boat... The boat was awesome. There was cabins below deck to sleep but it was beautiful weather so we chose to sleep on the deck underneath the stars which was amazing. The crew were awesome, took us to a few of their special snorkelling stops and fed the fish (they even found us a Nemo fish). Nicki even took us to his secret beach near Whitehaven Beach! I was worried travelling solo that I would be by myself but the people on the boat were awesome, the crew were really friendly and facilitated a fun social scene (shout outs to Jared, Georgie and the crazy Brazilian guys!) All around, a great trip. Definitely worth the money. Only downside was the trip was the trip had to end!!"
Nic
"We sailed on 'Hammer' with Ellen, Dani and Niko. They were a fantastic crew and the sailing was incredibly fun."
Maddison M
"Thanks for a brilliant 2 days sailing on Hammer - I had a fantastic time! The islands were beautiful, the crew were fun, friendly and professional and the boat was clean and comfortable and we had a great time sailing it. It was also a great opportunity to meet some really lovely people... Thanks again!"
