Atlantic Clipper was built in the UK in the early 80s and initially ran between the Caribbean and England. She came to Australia and was completely overhauled and made into a passenger vessel that would do blue water runs from Melbourne to Perth to Singapore and onto England so being originally built for long distance trips, she was designed with space in mind. Eventually she has made her way here to the Whitsundays and is now very happily cruising around one of the best sailing grounds in the world!
Atlantic Clipper cruises at a comfortable speed to get you to as many destinations as possible. When the winds are light, she uses its enormous engine to cruise at about 9 knots. One of the highlights of the trip is visiting the pristine Whitehaven beach, weather permitting, and our customers rave about Whitehaven Beach being a highlight of their trip to Australia.
A fully crewed diving team know all the best spots to scope out the best wildlife so you can scuba dive, snorkel or just swim at some amazing locations on the Great Barrier Reef Marine Park. One of the usual stops is at Luncheon Bay, a perfect place for a first scuba dive with its beach entry. Also they often stop at Langford Island for more snorkelling and diving which is also a great place to watch a beach sunset. Atlantic Clipper will generally have two dive instructors aboard, own compressor and two 6 metre tenders can transport passengers quickly to great beach and dive locations.
Life aboard Atlantic Clipper is as active or relaxed as you like. Help the crew on board to hoist the sails or sit back in the on deck spa and have a beer or two and watch the sunset. What better way to spend a holiday!
