Providence V is a 62-ft gaff rigged schooner which offers day and sunset sails in the Whitsundays. DAY SAILS Catch the breeze on a tallship and set sail to Whitehaven on a traditional tallship. Snorkel on the way back at one of the best spots in the Whitsundays. Walk up Hill Inlet to photograph one of the world's most photographed beaches. Lunch on board before we head off to Dumbbell Island for a beautiful snorkel with colourful coral and teeming with fish life. Afternoon fruit platter as we head homewards. Fully licensed. Learn how to belay a cleat, sweat the mainsail or just chill on deck and snorkel . We supply all snorkelling gear and stinger suits. SUNSET SAILS EVERY EVENING Slip into the sunset in style on our trademark sunset sail. Complimentary glass of bubbles and nibbles - what a perfect way to begin the evening.

What a great day! In style on a schooner to Whitsundays. Sun was shining, never seen coral so close. Lunch and afternoon fruit were delicious. And on our way back home I was behind the wheel for a while. Thx Kieran and Connor!
