Learn to Sail Whitsundays


Learn to Sail Whitsundays is part of the Explore Whitsundays Group of Companies.  We have offered sailing experiences of the Whitsundays since 1985 from our base in Airlie Beach. We have trained and developed a large number of deckhands who work their way through to Master Class 5 or Master Class 4 skippers. Many of our Learn to Sail Students have made terrific crew and are working in the Whitsundays as deckhands or charter skippers and others in the Super Yacht Industry.  Some of our students have gone on to find work in the Sailing industry overseas.

Instruction is with a qualified Commercial Master with years of experience both in the Whitsundays and Open Ocean with Workplace Trainer and Assessor Level 4 Qualifications. Some courses come with International Yachtmaster Training (IYT) certification.

Our sail training vessels are fully equipped for the level of course you are undertaking.  Vessels are in commercial survey with Marine Safety Queensland (MSQ) and we have marine and national park permits to operate within the Great Barrier Reef Marine Park and the Whitsunday Islands National Park.

Learn to sail courses range from the 3 day Introduction to Sailing around the Whitsundays to the 23 day Sail Learn to Earn specifically designed for young people who would like to start a career in Marine tourism with the experience of sailing on famous maxi yachts such as British Defender, Boomerang, Broomstick or Condor.  Further our students have the added bonus of each night, enjoying the beauty of the Whitsundays anchored in secluded bays, while looking up to the stars of the Milky Way or the Southern Cross.  As your crew prepares a sumptuous meal for you and your fellow crew mates..... this is learning to sail in paradise!

"Our ultimate goal is to educate our guests in sailing and instil a level of passion and safety that starts them off on their endeavours sailing whether for leisure or seeking a marine based career."
