    It is the responsibility of all passengers travelling to advise both your travel agent at the time of booking and vessel check-in agent before boarding of any medical conditions including food allergies you may suffer from.

    You need to allow adequate time to check-in prior to the specified departure time.

    It should be noted that adventure travel involves risk. Whilst we make every effort to safeguard clients, we cannot be responsible for personal injury or loss due to the actions of our clients which are beyond our control. We highly recommend that all clients have travel insurance covering illness, injury, loss or damage to personal belongings and not being able to travel on the confirmed date of departure.

    The Service Operator reserves the right to limit courtesy transfers to select local accommodations. Private residences or Airbnb properties may be asked to meet at the closest confirmed location. Failure to meet at the specified pick-up location may be treated as “No Show”, for which the Client Cancellation Policy applies.

    Accountability/Misconduct:

    All Service Operators have the right to provide client feedback and to cancel bookings based off of feedback from other Service Operators. 

    Please enjoy your travel experience in a kind and responsible manner.

    Sailing Whitsundays/Mr Travel will treat this as any normal client cancellation and therefore the cancellation fees stated in the Client Cancellation Policy will apply.

    Reviews by our Sailing Whitsundays customers

    Gerry Walden, 14 Jul 23
    We went back in June. We had a mixed day eg the engine failed twice and there was a strong smell from the toilet. The sailing was good. Glad to see things have been sorted out.
    Leonie Sanderson, 02 Jun 23
    We loved it! We chose the Lady Enid as a birthday celebration for a friend visiting from Sydney (we're 'new' locals). From the very beginning with tea and coffee, scones and jam and cream, it was special. We ended with antipasto and sparkling and an amazing sunset! Brilliant day.
    Katie Badger, 17 Jan 23
    It was certainly traveling to Whitehaven in style! The boat was spectacular
    Francesca Kelly, 10 Jan 23
    The boat is absolutely gorgeous! Bit more expensive than other tours but definitely worth the extra
