When you only have 2 days to see all of the Whitsundays, speed matters! Siska will ensure that no time is wasted as you sail at true racing speeds from one incredible destination to the next.

Siska's racing history is legendary! She came second in the Fastnet Race having sailed the last 300 miles with a broken boom. Siska won the Parmelia Race from England to Perth, which celebrated the 150th anniversary of the foundation of Western Australia. It is estimated that Siska has sailed around 140,000 nautical miles from its launch until arrival at the Whitsunday Islands in December 1992. During this time, Siska won two Sydney to Hobart Yacht Races along with circumnavigating the world twice.

HRH Prince Charles crewed on Siska when she set the fastest time defeating world champion Kioloa and was first overall at Cowes in the Queen Victoria Cup against 329 other entries. Your crew will enjoy sharing many a tall tale with you, detailing Siska's legendary history.

Siska has a myriad of winches and sailing gear that allow her to sail at top speeds. Guests are encouraged to assist on board, including hoisting and trimming sails, or taking the helm, but are also welcome to sit back and watch as the crew as you make your way around the islands!

Whitehaven Beach Siska From above

Whitehaven Beach and Hill Inlet lookout

Journey to the North Eastern side of Whitsunday Island to Whitehaven Beach. Whitehaven Beach is a massive 7kms in length and has the purest silica sand in the world, making it soft, cool and one of the most unique beaches along Australia's East Coast. While on Whitsunday Island, take a guided bush walk up to the ever-talked-about Hill Inlet Lookout to see the stunning swirling sands below, not found anywhere else in the world. Don't forget to bring your camera as this will be a view you will want to capture forever!

Snorkelling

Not only will you get to experience snorkelling in the aqua blue waters of the Great Barrier Reef Marine Park, but you will also get a first-hand viewing of the reef's exotic marine life and coral species. The most renowned snorkel locations are at the Northern end of the Whitsunday Islands, typically around Hook Island and Hayman Island. The experienced crew on Siska will determine the best snorkel locations based on the current weather and tidal conditions to deliver you the best underwater experience possible!

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. You should also ensure your travel insurance will cover special circumstances including weather events preventing guests from travelling to their tour departure destination and cancelled flights due to unforeseen circumstances.

We strongly recommend that you have travel insurance, especially during the wet season.

In the unlikely event of your trip being cancelled or stood down, all guest communication is required to go through our Online Store via telephone or email.

It was the thing I ever experienced. The tour was so nice and the crew were amazing. The told us everything about the whitsundays and took us to the secret beach as well. The food was so good as well!! Would really recommend this tour to my friends. Thank you so much
Megan Sharp, 23 Nov 22
Had the best time, Jamie, Zak and Finn were great and had so much knowledge on the island. It was interesting seeing them sail the boat, putting the sails up and down even if there was no wind! The trip was very relaxing and chill and we snorkelled in the best spots.
Jamieson Flanigan , 13 Nov 22
I surprised my partner with this trip for his 21st and we both absolutely loved it! The crew made sure we were all having fun, learning about the Whitsundays and eating... plenty! Snorkelling spots were so special, and the islands we sailed were epic. We’ve come away with so many new friends too??
