Crystal clear aquamarine waters at Stonehaven. Huge manta-ray's at Butterfly Bay, the romance of just us two sailing around the beautiful Whitsundays. Simply breathtaking. Thank you for my Whitsunday Escape.
We would love to thank all the staff for their support in ensuring our honeymoon aboard 'Fizzle Gig' was a wonderful time, free of any stress or problems due to the lovely yacht you provided us with & the knowledge & supportive staff that assisted us with our yacht charter. We had an amazing adventure aboard F.G.
Thanks for your help too, you guys run a great service. I'm not going to Whitsundays this year as I don't have the time, but next time I do, and if any of my friends want to go I will definitely recommend you guys first.
You hold policy is really fair, and your service is great. Your overnight in the harbour option is also a great service. You also do what you say you're going to do which is very important.
Thanks again for having us. Please pass my comments onto you entire team and esp. the management.
Thank you, we had the most wonderful holiday and the 5 star luxury of the "Queen Marie" was second to none. We will definitely be back in the future. Our family has travelled extensively overseas and we all agree that sailing the Whitsunday's is the best holiday we have had. We are recommending to all our friends that they put this trip on their ‘bucket list' as a must do in their lifetime and of course we are recommending Whitsunday Escape.
Thank you again for a magical holiday!
Love the triple opening doors that open up the space between inside & outdoors. A wonderful relaxing time with family & friends enjoying the beautiful offerings of the Whitsundays.
Thank you so much Whitsunday Escape for giving us such a great yacht to sail. Things were lovely & clean, what a beautiful part of Australia to explore. Thank you for your hospitality & your kindness. We will be back.
We enjoyed snorkelling, shore activities & walks and loved the anchorages at Cataran Bay & Butterfly Bay. Fantastic even with unsettled weather.
Thanks for the awesome adventure. We loved doing business with you. Whitsunday Escape was a big part of the experience.
We definitely enjoyed the trip. We were referred to your company via personal recommendation of one of your customers, and we were not disappointed at all. We also were very pleased with the advice and assistance given to us by Frank, our assigned briefer and subsequent sail-guide on the first Monday.
The importance of the level of professional standards maintained within your company became evident when we compared how easy our holiday experience was to that of some other bareboat hirers who had gone through different chartering firms. We shall definitely be strongly recommending your company to others who have already started quizzing us about our experiences.
Please also pass on our appreciation and thanks to all your staff, including office staff and Frank.
Thank you for the confirmation that all was well on the return with Miss Polly, we found her facilities very enjoyable that contributed to an excellent time by all.
I would also like to thank Whitsunday Escape for a hassle free time from the initial contact until completion of our holiday and would not hesitate to contact you for future holiday requirements of this nature. Many thanks and kindest regards.
Catching a 6ft reef shark, teaching crew how to sail. Excellent, Awesome!! Fully turbo sick...
Excellent holiday, weather was great & we were able to do most of the activities we planned. We had a diverse group of 9 people to keep happy.
What a delight, we had a fabulous time, you have a great business with terrific people assisting.
On our return to Melbourne we have told many people why they should go sailing and charter with Whitsunday Escape, thanks for the follow up email and we will be back.
Thanks to all for a great week of bareboating in the Whitsundays. We are really happy with all aspects of the week (even though the weather was below par for this time of year).
‘Miss Polly' is a great boat (It is the 3rd Lightwave that I've chartered and by far the best of any of them) and Gerry did a good job of presenting the boat and the briefing.
We were particularly pleased with being able to stay on board the night before because it meant we could complete our provisioning the day prior and could therefore get out of Abel Point earlier than on all previous (5) charters. This means that the first day can be really useful and enjoyable instead of a rush to get to an anchorage for the night.
Once again thanks and I'll be recommending Whitsunday Escape to anyone who intends to bareboat in the Whitsundays.
I have to say that was the most relaxing week I have spent in a long time. The boat and associated equipment were first rate as was the briefing and the service.
Having lived in the Whitsundays for a while some thirty years ago it was wonderful to rediscover the beauty of the islands, and doing it on one of your vessels was the perfect way to do it. "It's something I will definitely organise again and your company will definitely be my first "port of call".
We had a great time on board her and will definitely use you guys again.
We had a great time and will definitely be back. Keep up the good work!
Thank you for your email - we did indeed have a good time and have never had any thoughts of chartering with anyone else. We will be back again.
We are now home again. We enjoyed a really great experience on our sailing trip in your waters. We thank you!
What great waters....
What great weather....
What great sailing.... Fizzle-Gig was just divine.
We fully understand why she is referred to in the Whitsundays as "The Love Boat".....say no more!
Thanks to your staff for making everything so easy for us.
Just wanted to write to thank you for providing us with such a great holiday. From our initial enquiries all the way through to the de-briefing, we were very impressed with the service you and your staff provided.
The boat was in excellent condition and well presented, and you and your staff were always very accommodating. We will not hesitate in recommending you to our friends, and will definitely be chartering with you again in the future.
Also just a big thank you for such a wonderful holiday aboard "Serenity".
This was our third trip with Whitsunday Escape- it will not be our last.
As previously, every detail was fully covered - from super-efficient booking, through to a very friendly yet professional & informative briefing with Mike, to the way the way the whole holiday went off without the slightest hitch.
Whitsunday Escape- you are a truly professional team- well done.
The overall organisation was great. The fact that we could stay in the Marina the night before worked well for us. The provisioning was great, staff very helpful, thank you.
FUNtastic! Impressive support from Whitsunday Escape. Nice radio voice, Tim. Awesome! Three generations on board and we had a great time. Lots of coloured fish.
Hope to do it again. Had the best time ever, was the best holiday! We will tell other families about the holiday.
I can’t thank you enough for such a wonderful holiday. It wasn’t just a relaxing break for my wife and I, it was also an adventure for my two boys. Every day we had so many great things to do from exploring the coastline in the kayaks, fishing, experiencing fantastic waterfalls and playing on the beaches. We caught more than 12 different species of fish, saw whales, saw lots of dolphins, scooped up bait fish off the back of the boat, enjoyed great sunsets and we even had time to spend our evenings together as a family.
The boat was great but I wouldn’t expect anything less from Whitsunday Escape who really do a great job I looking after their boats. We’re already looking forward to next time with you guys.
Brilliant! We wish we had booked for longer.
It was great and easy to do. Very clean vessel. Navigation made easy.
Fantastic. Amazing trip. Great support on radio, much appreciated!
Great holiday! Terrific boat. Will come back again when the wind is gentler and I can sail better.
Beautiful scenery, mostly calm seas and a vessel worthy of a celebrity. Thoroughly enjoyable!
Very efficient. Excellent briefing and daily advice at scheduling times regarding anchorage choices & passage crossings. A very comfortable and well maintained vessel.
Hello everyone at Whitsunday Escape
I just wanted to thank everyone for such a trouble free and fantastic holiday. Our week on Zig Zag was unbelievable and the memories are sustaining me through being back at work! The yacht was spotlessly clean and everything worked perfectly. I made a pretty mean Saffron Porcini Risotto in the galley and dining outside every night listing to the whales breaching was a magical experience. Our sail from Stonehaven to Abel Point Marina in fresh SSE winds was a highlight – Zig Zag was balanced perfectly and cut through the passage with ease.
Can’t wait to come back one day. All the best.
We had a fantastic time on our boat with Whitsunday Escape for our Honeymoon. It was so great to have free rein of going where we wanted too, swimming, snorkelling whenever we wanted and enjoying the Whitsundays at our own pace. We highly recommend Whitsunday Escape!!!
"The Captain and his crew now understand why so many people take a deep breath and sigh at any mention of sailing the Whitsundays.
We all do the same now and reflect back on the great adventure and beauty we encountered.
Our boat the sexy Alchemist was so comfortable and easy to manage, providing plenty of room to move for the 8 of us.
We also felt very comfortable knowing that Whitsunday Escape were always available should we need them.
The Whitsundays Islands are truly fabulous and sailing provided the perfect way to get a taste. We will be back.
Thank you for the professional service provide by you team."
We enjoyed our sailing . Your service was impeccable . The weather not so good but we had fun playing a lot of cards and taught our grandchildren how to play cards and how to sail. I arrived back to find out my sister had sent a photo to the Gympie times and I made the front page . A bit different to the sea world :-)
Dear Trevor, Wes and crew
Just a brief note to thank you all for the best time we have had to date sailing the magnificent Whitsunday Islands. Sunrush's performance in all seas and wind conditions exceeded my expectations compared to other vessels of equivalent displacement I have chartered.
She was presented in A1 condition and hence had no issues over our 21 nights enjoying to the max what the Whitsunday's have to offer.
We had a number of friends and family who joined us from time to time and all had a great experience and again commented on the professional and friendly manner of the Whitsunday Escape team.
Looking forward to seeing you (and Sunrush) November 2013
Thank you so much Whitsunday Escape, we have many wonderful memories to look back on thanks to you and your fantastic boat "Waterman".
We will definitely be back one day!
Weather was absolutely perfect! The water was perfect!
The Lady L2 was perfect! What a perfect Christmas vacation for our family that travelled half way around the world from Chicago, USA.
We had a fantastic holiday, and booking through your company was an absolute pleasure, everything was so easy and the staff were great and answered any questions we had with professionalism and courtesy.
We will definitely book through you again. Thank you.
Thank you so much for such a wonderful holiday!!! That was our second time with Christine, and she is great little ship.
In particular – thanks for the personal service too. It was our third rental with W/E and we feel a little like family!
Until next time.
Best place on Earth to sail! Not crowded, beautiful nature and helpful, friendly staff.
We will definitely be coming back a 5th time!
We had a great time on board of R&R and did have a lot of rest and relaxation!
Spending a week on a yacht is a great team building experience for your family and any guests you choose to have. It allows you to unwind and slow down, which is invaluable in our hectic times
We had the time of your lives, it outdid all of our expectations!
We could not have imagined seeing all the wildlife and beautiful scenery that we did. We would do it all over again anyday.
Amazing Thank You!
Very well organised – Terry gave a fantastic briefing and we enjoyed every single moment from sailing the turquoise waters to snorkelling with turtles and watching the awesome sunsets. Will definitely be back!
We really miss having someone check on us each day at 8 and 2pm! Perhaps only good thing is we can use as much damn toilet paper as we want now!! Ha! Just wanted to thank you all, as a great team!
This photo was taken early in our trip, as there are no tissues nearby, as towards the end we got quite upset at the thought of having to leave Serenity. I think the photo sums up our relaxing evenings! We left her on Hamilton Island, and hope that all went great in picking her up, and that we had left her exactly as we found her, in perfect clean condition.
We do hope we can come again. We did have a fabulous time. Our very best regards.
Just wanted to thank Tim and all the rest of the crew for a fabulous "escape" on board the "Waterman" recently.
We had a fantastic time and everyone we dealt with at Whitsunday Escapes was very professional.
Everything was so professionally prepared and your website was also invaluable in helping us prepare of our trip. All the best!
A totally relaxing experience form start to finish. The reservation process worked well and we were contacted regulalrly to update us. On arrival the vessel and provisioning were ready to go and after our induction we set of into a tropical paradise. Whilst the S Easters were quite brisk we found fantastic sheltered anchorages as suggested by WE staff and checked if better alternatives were available on our daily calls.
Serenity was in good order and made a delightful escape very pleasurable. We hope to retun soon.
