Maxi Sailing is great fun and high on adventure. Maxi’s are large yachts over 22 metres in length, their sheer size and power makes for a memorable sailing experience.
This 2 day, 1 night tour is great for those who are on a short time frame. You will visit Whitehaven Beach, sail through the Whitsunday Islands, snorkel coral reefs teeming with marine life, visit stunning sand and coral beaches, have time to go on guided Island bush walks and even scuba dive.
Depending on your day of departure, you will travel on one of two boats; Siska or Hammer.
Siska was built in Perth Western Australia, is 80ft long and has a single mast which is 106 feet high. It has won two Sydney to Hobart Yacht Races along with circumnavigating the world twice.

Hammer is famous in Blue Water racing circles, in particular for 5 consecutive placings in the Sydney to Hobart Ocean Race.
