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.

Billy Halliday-Scharwei, 04 Dec 20
Great boat, crew were amazing! Would highly recommend
Marta, 04 Sep 20
Solway Lass was sold to us as a pirate ship experience and didn't disappoint. We had all the sails up and went to Whitehaven, alongside snorkelling at various locations in the islands. I also got an anklet made by the crew :)
Jackson, 24 Dec 19
Wow! What a fun 3 days out at the Whitsunday Islands. My girlfriend and I just got back from the Solway Lass 3 day/ 2 night tour and had the most unbelievable experience! We saw whales, dolphins, turtles and loads of other marine life. The crew are so much fun and very knowledgeable about the Islands and the history of the vessel. It was so interesting to hear about it all. We’ll be telling all our friends to go on this tour for sure! Best part of my Australia holiday, hands down
Jack, 04 Dec 19
Great trip, plenty of food and even the chance to raise the sails. The snorkelling at Mackerel Bay was a real highlight and the Tarzan swing definitely got a good workout! Will recommend to friends
