Queensland Yacht charters

An afternoon sailing cruise

We only have the one vessel a Dufour 35 Classic. "Eau De Vie" is in top condition and regularly maintained to a 2C survey. She has a maximum of 8 passengers and 2 crew when outside on the ocean and when inside she is permitted 11 passengers and 2 crew.

Our skippered Queensland yacht charters services are available 7 days a week and depart at the requested time of our guests. Our private Gold Coast Whale watching tour departs around 8 am which gives us the majority of the day to cruise with these majestic mammals. We are out on the ocean for between 5 - 8 hours whilst whale watching on the Gold Coast. The whale watching season starts in June and the last whales are passing us heading south in early November.


Please view our other sailing options in the menu on this page.


As your skipper and host I look forward to welcoming you aboard!
