Providence V is a 62-ft gaff rigged schooner which offers day and sunset sails in the Whitsundays. DAY SAILS Catch the breeze on a tallship and set sail on one of our day sails for snorkelling at one of the best spots in the Whitsundays. (Thurs/Fri/Sat/Tues) Sail to Blue Pearl for a snorkel and then relax on the sandspit at Langford Reef . Morning tea, snorkelling and lunch on the beach before swimming with the turtles. Afternoon fruit platter as we head homewards. Fully licensed. Learn how to belay a cleat, sweat the mainsail or just chill on deck and snorkel . We supply all snorkelling gear and stinger suits. (Sun/Mon/Wed) Sail to Whitehaven. Walk up Hill Inlet to photograph one of the world's most photographed beaches. Lunch on board before we head off to Dumbbell Island for a beautiful snorkel with colourful coral and teeming with fish life. TWO-DAY SAIL: Why not combine a package with a two-day sail. Then you will see much of what the Whitsundays has to offer. SUNSET SAILS (Thurs/Fri/Sat/Tues) Slip into the sunset in style on our trademark sunset sail. Complimentary glass of bubbles and nibbles - what a perfect way to begin the evening. Combine with a gourmet dinner package at Peppers. We also offer private charters which include Christmas parties; Hens N Bucks; Corporate Charters and Weddings. We are fully licensed. Providence Sailing welcomes you on board.

Great to hear you enjoyed some of the cruise. The sunset sail is all about seeing the sun go down. If you wanted to see the islands and coast its best to go out during the day when you can see them.
