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 on one of our day sails for snorkelling at one of the best spots in the Whitsundays.

(Thurs/Fri/Sat/Tues) Sail to Blue Pearl for a snorkel and then relax on the sandspit at Langford Reef . Morning tea, snorkelling and lunch on the beach before swimming with the turtles. 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.

(Sun/Mon/Wed) Sail to Whitehaven. 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.

TWO-DAY SAIL: Why not combine a package with a two-day sail. Then you will see much of what the Whitsundays has to offer.

SUNSET SAILS (Thurs/Fri/Sat/Tues)

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. Combine with a gourmet dinner package at Peppers.

We also offer private charters which include Christmas parties; Hens N Bucks; Corporate Charters and Weddings. We are fully licensed.

Providence Sailing welcomes you on board.

We had the most perfect day out on Providence today. Kieron and Joel were fabulous, so easy going, polite, helpful and informative. The group of people on board were a great mix. Weather was perfect albeit we all got soaked with spray on the way! Soon dried out at Whitehaven beach though. Fabulous day and one we will always remember... More

Fantastic day on the water! Grant and Joe were excellent guides. The negative reviews state not enough time on the beach etc, but if all you want is beach time then this is not the trip for you, you're better off joining one of the powerboats that cram too many people aboard. The Providence offers a long, relaxing and beautiful... More

One of the best experience and a must do at Airlie Beach! Kieran and Josh were very kind and friendly, they had great sense of humors.There was a person who could not speak on board, yet Kieran was able to communicate with him by writing on paper or hand gestures. My heart warmed up as I saw that. Every passenger... More

Thanks Andrew. Relaxing is one of the most important parts of being out on the water and a sailing boat like Providence is the best way to experience that. No rush. Plenty of time to chill and glad the snorkelling was good. Thanks muchly for your review. More
